Nearly eighteen years removed from when Quan (aka FerQuan) first exploded onto the scene on Nas‘s hit “Just A Moment“, the former Ill Will Records signee prepares the King Quan Project, which includes two new EPs: Barz and Balladz. First up is the Barz EP, released today (2/25/2022) exclusively via Bandcamp. With melodic raps about the life of a street hustler over hard-hitting trap beats, the project sees the extraordinary rapper, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist fully immersed in a world of music that transcends generations.
“The vision for this project was to use every single God-given talent to touch everyone willing to listen. Be it rapping, singing or a seamless hybrid of both, I’m sharing my personal testimonies in these songs. They illustrate the evolution of a ‘Ghetto Prince’ to a ‘People’s King’ in the face of adversity.”
