Qwestions (born September 14, 1989) has been in love with music since he was little kid. Watching music videos and documentaries of music acts made him want what the greats have. Secretly writing rhymes, that were formally poems, he realized he may have some type of talent. But fearing that nobody would like the songs he abandoned his songwriting and poetry dreams. In 2005, he traveled to Milwaukee; where he saw the Hieroglyphics crew perform. The show was so crazy that from that day on he knew getting into the music industry is what he wanted to do. At 14, after free styling for a classmate; he was asked what name he went by. Not having an actual name he used a shorten version of his real name “Q West.” But one day while having a conversation with his friends he was told he asked a lot questions, and that’s the day he was given his new name Qwestions.
Qwestions then graced the streets of Chicago in 2007 with the release of his debut project, entitled "Welcome To Greatness". The South Side native made a name for himself by performing at various events and venues including the popular Chicago Center For Performing Arts. The amazing response to his live shows ignited his ambitions to self-record, distribute and promote his 2010 "As Of Write Now" mixtape, which now stays in heavy rotation amongst blog sites and its readers. Within a short week of release Qwestions accumulated over 200 downloads making "As Of Write Now" a digital favorite amongst listeners. March 2011 came with Qwestions recreating magic with his No Commercials release by gaining over 3000 downloads. With his witty yet ingenious lyrics, Qwestions has proven that he is not your average Chicago emcee.
