Born in Fayetteville, NC into a single parent home, Quiel always loved music growing up . His mother worked two jobs for most of his young life and when she worked overnight, Quiel often spent time with his grandfather, who always spent time playing different vinyl and exposing him to music at a very young age. At the age of ten, Quiel wrote his first rap and recorded his first song with his father at a home studio. Since then, he’s been writing and perfecting his craft to one day bring his musical stylings to a wider audience. After signing with Small Town in the beginning of 2015, he hopes to bring his lyrical style of rap to not only the duke community but to all who appreciate the rap genre and are willing to listen. His influences include Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Tupac and Eminem.
