All Eyez On ‘Q!’ Kupid Dishes On His… Humble Beginnings: Okay, that’s a long story… so pretty much I started dabbling into music about sixteen years old. I was in a dance group, like step – high school stuff- then we branched out and were in a dance group—we, as in my dance crew at that time. That ended up into taking it more seriously ’cause we were doing competitions and were getting requests to do pageants and stuff of that nature throughout high school and a little bit of college. Then, that kinda turned into four members of that dance group forming a boy band, a soca, reggae dancehall and R&B group, which was called Crossovah.”

“Last summer, we did a feature on hip hop artist Kupid (aka Q), sharing his backstory and passion of music for you guys. Well, Kupid is back with a new music video for his track, "Who Shot Ya," feat. singer Jus J! The chill, sexy track isn't actually about any violence at all, but really about Kupid being shot by the actual Cupid, falling for a special lady who catches his eye. The track was produced by Troyton Rami, who also directed the visual, and the track was written by Kupid and Mykul Watson, with live instruments from Angel Barrel, Marcos Mejia, and Troy Murphy. "I decided that I wanted to make a new song that had the same feel that “Hey Girl”[released in 2013] did," Kupid said of the track, wanting to I wanted to get that feel that we still in the States, but when you close your eyes you can feel and hear the Caribbean in background." While working with Troyton and other producers for about a year and a half, Kupid actually finished another track that he first thought to m”

“In the recent weeks, Orlando recording artist Q released the music video to his latest single “Who Shot Ya” produced by Troy from Black Shadow Records who produced Sean Paul’s first record “Give Me The Light.” The single has been a major hit among his fans and supporters as an independent artist. Q is inspired by various artists from multiple genres including Beenie Man, Sean Paul, Drake, Lil Wayne and Blink-182. "I think Lil Wayne had a big, big, big impact vocal wise in my career," Q stated. Listening to his music, you hear a blend hip hop and island pop among others, as Q develops his own unique sound. Last year, Q was featured as one of the 10 emerging artists in hip hop and r&b music to watch on AXS.com while he was still promoting his “Hey Girl” single. He was inspired after listening to the Will Smith song “Summertime.” He then decided that he would like to create a new version of the song. As he told The Spotlight, “That’s why when you listen to it, it’”

“In terms of the future, Kupid, admittedly very goal-driven, knows that he will have his hand in music in some way as the years go on, whether it be continuing his own music or eventually starting his own label. "I would say, 10 years from now, you will see me doing maybe management, helping other artists out," he said. "Trying to change the process of the game, help whoever needs to be helped, and bring that joyful music back out to the world." From speaking with him, I see that Kupid is very driven and passionate about his craft. That drive, combined with his talent, will definitely take him far!”
