Elite Muzik Interviews Q The Question
I Recently interviewed Philly native Quinton Hatfield aka Q The Question, who has had stories published in HIPHOPDX, THE SOURCE, OZONE, YORAPS, and many more with some of the biggest entertainers in music and sports. With over 2500 published articles to date, Q The Questionâ€™s name is one highly familiar with many in the entertainment business. he also has his own publicity and promotions company Q The Question Promotions. Q The Question promotions takes artist careers to new levels with professional publicity and promotions, in which they will increase their brand and understand the importance of public press. in the interview we spoke on how he 1st got involved in hip-hop, his opinion on if the hip-hop genre will last and much more
How did you get started with Hip Hop?
I started off as a fan first of course ha hah, but I worked as a journalist for many major outlets such as Hiphopdx.com, Ozone magazine & many more. I also have a publicity background as a publicist in which I had strong ties to the media with my company Q The Question Promotions.
What artists inspired you too become involved with Hip Hop?
Growing up listening to Nas, Tupac, Jay-Z, Redman, the Wu-Tang Clan I knew it was a must that I had to work in hip-hop. Even from the business side of it and watching Diddy with Bad Boy, Jay & Dame with the Roc, Birdman & Slim just turning Cash Money into a powerhouse and Master P No Limit Records. Awwww man, watching that growing up I knew I would be working in the music business.
What is your favorite album of all time?
That question is impossible for me to answer, I’m a hip-hop head and seen the release of so many great albums. Nas, Redman, Wu-Tang, Biggie, 2pac, DMX, Fat Joe all those dudes and many others had great albums. It’s impossible for me to have a favorite.
Do you think this genre will last or will people get tired of it?
Nooooo way, you get people who say hip-hop is dead and all that crap but what year is it? 2013 right? Hip-Hop is still here. The culture is still growing so anyone that feels the genre is dead, I don’t know what’s wrong with them. We have dope artist in this era such as Trel Mack of course, along with Kendrick Lamar, Drake, Big Sean, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Ab-Soul, Wiz Khalifa, Tito Lopez, Locksmith, Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies the list goes on and on. Hip-Hop is alive to me.
Today’s hip-hop game seems to be mostly about collaborations, what artist would love to work with on a project with?
I’m a huge fan of Wiz Khalifa so I’m hoping I can host a mixtape with him one day. I would also like to get Trel Mack, Kendrick Lamar & J. Cole on a record too one day. I’m going to speak that into existence haha. DJ Khaled me and him have great energy so I would love to work on a project with him too.
What is your ultimate goal at the end of your career?
To sit back and say that me and Trel Mack really turned SKE Records into a powerhouse and have the ability to bless others as well. The more success we have the more opportunity we can give to others and make it possible to live their dream as well. Just like how I was inspired by Diddy, Jay-Z, Damon Dash. Russell Simmons, it would be great to have a young kid say i loved watching Trel Mack & Q The Question growing up.
