The Q's..........Bad Advice



Tha Q, was born and raised in the Nation's Capital. Unsigned but definitely full of hype, Q's style and sound can be compared to classic eastcoast rappers, including Biggie and RZA.  
Tha Q's UNDERGROUND style is dynamic and versatile.  He attributes his versatility to studying many different genres of music, including rock/alternative, R&B, Pop, Country, and even Classical compositions.  Q is mostly known for his intricate rhyme patterns and chameleon-like flow schemes.  His latest mixtape, "It'z My Time," showcases his many talents and offers listeners an opportunity to get inside his head. With a focused and no-nonsense approach to rapping, Q's appeal lies in his honesty on the mic.

2 of the Lamest, Wackest and/or Dumbest emails I got in 2008


This email is from a young homie that got at me to work with him but he didnt have the bread. So he hit me like 6 months later and I told him my schedule tight the beginning of 09 etc and this is what he had to say about it. The red letters is what set me off about this email and tipped me to how a lot of these artist think.

"Im better than all the people you work with, with the exception of wale (all cockyness aside). Plus you havent even heard me spit.I feel like deserve a chance. I work so hard to prefect all the areas in my career. I feel like working with you is probably the only chance I'll have to get the exposure and respect I need to be successful in the music industry.I want to spit for you one time and then you can tell me if theres a spot for me in 09 or not."

This email is from some producer that probably no has heard of and he claims "Ridin in that Black Joint" by Wale that I produced sounds like his record he did years ago. After I responded and told him that the song was patterned after "Stuntin Like My Daddy" by Lil Wayne ( I just put yall on the a little secret) and that he could take whatever action he wanted and guess what..... I never heard from him again.

I talked to Wale and he pointed me in your direction or suggested I talk to you. The song Riding in that Black Joint sounds just like a song i did a few years back named Ridin' Dirty. Not so much the words or the hook but the beat. He said you were the producer. I have a copy my version if you need a reference but we need to come to some type of resolution.

10 DMV HIP HOP/ NON HIP HIP TRENDS THAT MUST CEASE TO EXIST IN 2009

10 DMV HIP HOP/ NON HIP HIP TRENDS THAT MUST CEASE TO EXIST IN 2009

Stop wearing Nike boots with every damn thing: You wear them with your church outfit, you wear them with your pajamas, you wear them with shorts. I mean come on. I like (not love) Nike boots too but damn give them a break in the 09.

Don't not use the word swagg in your rhymes, your everyday vocab etc: This actually should have died in 07 but hey......

Saying Wale, Tabi etc.. don't rep the DMV: They do rep the DMV and almost everything they do they stamp the DMV unlike others that have deals and or are in the press a lot. After you get a deal you rep where you from to the world and I believe by now their fans know they from the DMV

Dick riding the DMV movement: Some of you can care less about the DMV. Your just following because its the hot thing to do and you want to be someone within the movement. But the truth is only a few have been around way before the movement was a movement and want to see it become a solid part of the entertainment industry. STOP FAKING!

DMV rappers presence on the DMV blogs is greater than their presence in the streets and/or at events: The industry is built and will always be built on relationships and the computer isn't the best way to go about having a relationship with someone in the game. Recording in your room and emailing the song doesn't equate to "grinding" Get out and about. And if your under clubbing age then still go down to the hot spots and play the let out. I did it when I was 17,18, 19. But then again some of you probably can't come out after the street lights come on or too scared to come out. Hahahaha just joking! Love.........

Starting go go bands: Just because you and your 4 homies like go go doesn't mean you need to start a band. Let's be real go go bands ain't really making much bread these days (except for a few bands) so................its probably best to do something else in the go go game. Oh and please stop with he acronyms FTB, GGB, UPB etc.........please stop we can't keep up.

Stop having the goo go awards every year: The same people win every damn year.

Locs or with the fitted sitting on top of them things: Ok we know Wayne had something to do with the loc frenzy here because back in the day bammas used to look at you was crazy for having locs. Bammas used to live and die by having a fresh cut and/or shape up. But these youngins out here are looking down right dirty and you'll really all look a like. I bet you if Wayne cut his locs tomorrow 80% of the DMV would cut theirs. Hahahaha I got my locs for spiritual purposes but I'm sure a lot of these youngins didn't.

Calling each other "son": Some lingo will never die here like Joe, bamma, moe etc because its dc created but "son" is New York invention and its time to give it back to them.

Everyone wanting to rap: The success of few has motivated many and I am very happy to see people motivated but damn some of you know you shouldn't be rapping. Why are you trying to do a whole mixtape but you don't even know what bars are or how to arrange a song or better yet how to write lyrics. This rap ish is getting out of control. Same goes for beatmakers. And I call you beat makers because you make a beat and give or lease to a artist and let them do what the hell ever they want to do over your beat and you have no input on the record what so ever therefor your nothing but a beatmaker and a greedy one at that. You never accompany the artist to the studio, give input or hell you don't even format the beat correctly. I know fruitly loops, reasons and mpcs have motivated you to get in the beat game but your not a producer until you see the record all the way through. I know I'm going to get a lot of comments on this one but before I even owned my studio I went to every session and mix session when any artist was recording over my record so.........I pratice what I preach.


THESE ARE NO PARTICULAR ORDER AND MAYBE YOU CAN HELP ME PUT THEM IN ORDER OR IF I MISSED ANYTHING PLEASE LET ME.

IDEA INSPIRED BY XXL

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE COMMENTS I GET ON THIS! HAHAHAHA

Joe.D - Animator (Mixtape)

If you're reading this email, that means I fuck with your music and/or you as a person:)  This is a new mixtape I put together (obviously).  It contains some new Dirty Water/Joe.D songs and remixes of well-known artists with production done totally by me.  I think you will enjoy it.
