Artist Name: Questnine

New Song/Release Title: Questnine – All That

Tell us something about you that fans should know:

I'm interested in neo soul sounds, but inspired heavily by J Cole, Drake, Westside Boogie, Young Thug, and Trippie Redd just to mention a few. I'd describe myself as someone who's on the rise in a musical sense, and it sucks that I can't get the exposure I'd want and having this opportunity is a step, I suppose. I think of myself as an artist but I think writing, freestyling on Youtube beats and spoken word helped me release my depression from poverty and helped me keep my head straight, but I saw a lot of the people around me get locked up and I felt that my real experiences down by southside and eastside could really help people get away from the bullshit and give people hope they can do what they love and no one can or should be able to stop that except God himself.. I finally think I found a sound that's neo soul in genre. What our team, Questnine, encompasses is high level productions, and sampling tapes.. Sometimes I record as therapy.

Where are you from and what’s the music scene like there?

Firstly, this is an opportunity that is once in a lifetime. I'm originally from the big apple. I was born in Bronx, New York in project housing and then we moved to Atlanta when I was seven. In Atlanta the music scene is live when your friends are Djs at the famous Buckhead bars there. I also see the hip hop movement in Atlanta exploding through the work of amazing producers who are giving people opportunity or discounted studio time. I remember working with one friend who had never charged me a dime, and another friend who basically taught me the in and out of creating a studio, and I was able to learn the technical aspects of my musics sonic quality. I remember early last year I was on IG live with Sonny Digital and he thought one of my unreleased tracks was great and it really
made me believe that I need to be doing this cause who wants to work a 9-5 all there lives?

How have your life experiences influenced your music?

I remember my best friend getting locked up while on probation selling cocaine and flipping cars, and they ended up giving him fifteen years. He sold cause he needed the money.. I remember the day he was pulled over, I was with him, and I realized he was authentic then.. He took the blame cause I never got into any of that, The truth is that we grew up around gangs and had to grow up fast. People see us as brown with white people hair and assume we ain't about it cause usually people from our culture typically don't make music as seriously as my team and I have for the last couple
years including two producers, and engineers, and one writer not
including myself, and I'm the artist. I realize my music can be perceived as bass heavy melodies driven by introspective yet simple lyrical
conviction. What had influenced me the most was my dad passing away two years ago. I stopped doing drugs, went to rehab, and then found my outlet which was the best high, and that was this beautiful music. The last two years I built my studio at home while working full time and going to college until I dropped
out.

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

I would want to work with Saba because his lyrics hit me different.

Let’s have a listen to the new Questnine track:
