Q.G.

Back to Player  

Never stop, never quit! A phrase used everyday by Rose Gold's artist Q.G, who began rapping in 2005 for fun with family members, at the time the rapper didn't take music seriously and eventually stopped. In summer 2007 the rapper was hired as a music engineer for Spring Bros, they flew him out to Ohio and sent him to school on their behalf, so he could focus on working on websites and GFX design for them. May 2008, Q.G departed from the Spring Bros camp and started working with two new artist Kelz, and Teen. The three artist formed The 3Gz, a group widely accepted on social networking sites at the time like Myspace. The group put one mixtape out together, but soon after the release Kelz and Teen joined New Born Ent. and left Q.G by himself to embark on his solo career. With a lot on his mind and the world against him, Q.G put together his first mixtape entitled "All On My Own" which consisted of a mixed collage of songs including Keep Strong, Ride Solo and Rollin With A G, the single was received very well on Youtube and MySpace scoring over 1000 plays in the first month. Still feeling he didn't hit the mark he had in mind, the artist stopped rapping again and began forming Rose Gold, feeling he needed a platform for his work so he could have an online portfolio. After a two year period Q.G hopped back onto the music scene, with his second group mixtape "Takers" teaming up with a popular Denver singer Yung JJ. Together they made a small buzz releasing Million Dolar Swag, She Just Want A Secret and Motivation. Frustrated from not receiving the numbers online, he had in mind Q.G went back to the drawing board, and put together a mixtape of Rose Golds best tracks number wise, and entitled it "Rose Gold Classics Vol. 1". The mixtape was the start of a big thing, reaching over 1,000 views in the first week and getting talked and blogged about online. Riding the buzz of the mixtape Q.G decided to work on his second solo mixtape entitled "Hold Ya Head" which he decided to dedicate to his favorite rapper 2pac. Wanting to tell a story to his fans Q.G felt it would be cool to throw out something different. Once released the artist was happy to see "Hold Ya Head" took to fans instantly! Originally released exclusively on Hot New Hip Hop "Hold Ya Head" did well reaching over 8,000 views and 3,000 downloads in the first month.
