Quesfire is a two time Underground Music Award Winner, who has been taking the New York music scene by storm. He has also brought his high energy performances to major venues such as S.O.B.S., Webster Hall, and BB Kings. He has also shared the stage with artists such as Jadakiss, Fabolous, Joell Ortiz, Fred The Godson and Lloyd Banks, in the process becoming noted in the hip-hop circuit of the entire Tri-State area.
In addition to having his work featured on Hip Hop websites such as Allhiphop.com, Hiphopdx.com, Nahright.com and Blogxilla.com, Quesfire has also created his own smart phone app, allowing users to download all his media straight to their phones.
Quesfire, who stays true and humble towards his fans, embraces the live show format, making it the highlight of his talent. A bi-lingual performer, he can also rap in french creole. When asked why he continues to push upward Quesfire says “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”
His latest single “Love Me Hate Me,” is a track off of his critically acclaimed album entitled “To Whom It May Concern,” containing 11 gut-busting tunes, featuring appearances by NYC’s Own Drawzilla, Wordspit, Rockland’s Emperor Chi, and others. The album also includes classy productions from platinum Producers Bangout (50 cent, Maino), Kajmir Royale (Lil Wayne, Bow Wow) and DJ Corbett (Siagon).
Honestly, I did not see this one coming. “Love Me Hate Me” is hot. This is easily the biggest surprise of the year for me, so far. Quesfire digs in deep with some contemplative lyrics. He takes a hard look at the music scene, where he notes that; “independent artists are trying to make an impact in a music world designed to break their spirits.” Quesfire targets music’s major protagonists, from rival artists and bitter managers to greedy promoters, phony producers and sneaky video directors. What comes out is a no holds barred warning about the current state of affairs inside the music industry.
The sad thing is Quesfire could probably have written this 5, 10 or even 20 years ago and the song would always have been pertinent. Testifying that the music industry was and still is, a harsh place indeed for any honest, creative soul. If anything, the latest, modern-day technology has allowed some new breeds of bloodsuckers into the game.
On “Love Me Hate Me,” Quesfire tells it like it is, without ever going over the top. He just lays back, kicks in and let’s his easy flow do the work over a smooth hypnotic beat. The video of the song, works even better, as Quesfire looks you straight in the eye, while spitting the truth.
More than anger and disgust, Quesfire’s honest down-to-earth gaze, throughout the video footage, transmits disappointment and disillusion in a world he feels so desperately ready to conquer.
