Quentin Scales, was born January 1, 1987. I was raised by a single mother, Marilyn Joe Parker. I had a brother and two sisters. Although, we didn’t have it easy, we had each other, and to us, that’s all that mattered. We lived in a small town called Hugo, Ok, where dreams are big but the poverty rate is even bigger. My mother did her best to make ends meet and we entertained ourselves the best we knew how…………with music.
As early as I can remember, I would rap to myself and outloud about things I wasn’t even old enough to comprehend. It was just in me, and I needed to let it out, even if no one was listening. Around the age of 12, my brother made a makeshift studio at our house, and I would sit and listen to him rap and watch him write. I was mesmerized by it all. It was magic to me and I knew at that moment that I had to give it a try. My brother became my toughest critic, he pushed me to be better and his honesty and criticism became motivation. He would listen to me and as I got better, his words of approval still ring in my ear “Keep it up”, and “Don’t stop”. He knew what I was capable of and that’s why he still pushes me to this day.
