Qwestions West = Interview + Mixtape

 I know it's been a while since I posted on a featured artist but today I have one that everyone should check out.  Qwestions West is a young rapper from the Midwest and has a lot of promise for the future.  With this interview there is also a mixtape download link where you can get the mixtape free.  Ladies & Gentlemen I present to you an interview with Qwestions...

Where are you from?
I'm from the southside of Chicago.

What does the name Qwestions mean?
The name Qwestions is a nickname I got growing up. Its taking my first name initial "Q" and my last name "West" with the "ions" at the end. I got this name from a friend back in like 7th grade for asking too many questions, I just fell in love with it.

How long have you been rapping? far as I know I wrote my first song at 8 years old. I still had the lyrics until just recently lol I cant find it now. I stopped writing and rhyming around 12 and got back at it around 14-15. Its just been non stop every since.

Tell us about this mixtape, what can we expect?
On my mixtape As Of Write Now I wanted to make people feel like they were listening to an album. The flow of the project, and the overall tone that is kept through out it and the quality of the songs I wrote keeps it from being an average mixtape in my eyes. If anybody was ever doubting me lyrically or creatively this mixtape will make them all believers I guarantee it.

What is your inspiration to rap?
My inspiration is the world around me. I love watching the world as things happen and how I and or other people react to things. I'm also inspired by my own personal life. I feel like my life is interesting enough to talk about a little bit lol, I like being able to let people into my world.

Who are you listening to right now?
Right now I'm bumping a lot of Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, and J. Cole. I listen to other stuff but these 3 get heavy rotation on my iTunes. The only other people getting a lot of play over here is my Conscious Productionz family.

What do you feel is the state of Hip Hop now?
I feel like Hip Hop, just like any other way of life, it has many different faces. Right now the mainstream side of Hip Hop is showing us something new. I do think its coming back around to the lyrics though. A lot of the newer breed of emcees are very lyrical and its refreshing. Things change from time to time so if we love Hip Hop the way everyone says they do they will embrace these changes until things look they way they would prefer.

What are some of your upcoming projects?
Right now I'm working on another mixtape that I will be dropping in April hopefully, and my album which will be dropping this summer.

Any words you want to leave readers?
I just want the readers to know I'm just making music from my heart. I hope they like the music enough to want to support me.
