Quincy is a music-producer, lyricist recording artist and videographer based in the Pacific Northwest who has been involved in youth education work since 2012, visiting High-schools, treatment centers and lock down facilities as a speaker, workshop leader and part-time teacher.
Quincy's love for Hip-hop took form freestyling with his friends and composing beats while in high school. Post-graduation, Quincy attended an art-school to study film but became dissatisfied with college life. After dropping out and returning to his hometown, he found that making music and songwriting provided a much needed outlet while dealing with isolation and depression. For a number of years Quincy went through the trials and tribulations of delinquency and a self-destructive lifestyle, eventually getting a wake-up call.
His work speaks to the process of internal transformation and recovery, being 9-years sober, after climbing out of a self-destructive lifestyle, to eventually find his path, supported by traditional elders, community and ceremony.
In 2016 Quincy released his 2nd full-length project, Remedy, and later that year he journeyed to was able to journey to Romania where he filmed a music video in a salt-mine near where his Great-Grandfather was a miner and discovered a connection with his Mongolian ancestry.
That same year he met with friends and fellow hip hop artists/educators to form Cypher CURE, a youth/community-based non-profit providing a positive environment for youth to express themselves and explore their gifts.
Some highlights of Quincy's community work mainly in the Portland area from 2014 - 2019, as an organizer, guest presenter, workshop leader and teacher of Hip-hop songwriting / production / recording / filmmaking.
