Mistajay: What is the story and conception behind your emcee name?

QUAN: Ferquan is my birth name… and the Don is a title I earned. my family nicknamed me QUAN for short.

Mistajay: The area are your reppin’ Newport “Bad News”, VA what is the music scene like there?

QUAN: A bunch of talent, great raw talent that needs to be discovered I think somethimes VA changed the sound of music period.  It has been a great influence to the music scene, you know what im saying. I plan to change that hopefully…God willing.

Mistajay: What are your influences of your music? And what inspires you?

QUAN: Everything…Oldies but goodies, hip hop, every kind of music you could imagine. Too many artist to name.

Mistajay: Your Bio describes  Hip-Hop as being  in a downward spiral, riddled withmeaningless content, trendy clichés and embellished tales of alleged hood ties,  what makes you say that?  And How do you describe your style?

QUAN: It’s obvious- ya’ll see and I see it, if you don’t see it may God help you. I “Don” too many styles to name but if I could one word it Soulfull.

Mistajay: You where featured on MTV’s MY Block series the Virginia Episode what benefit  did you think you appearance had on your opportunities in the game?  Also as indy artist what do you think some of the the benefits are, if any and some of the difficulties of being Independent?

QUAN: Grade A exposure, don’t get too much better than that.  As for being independent, you have a lot of control. But it’s just that- everything falls on you financially and you don’t get the same exposure in most cases.

Mistajay: You have worked and performed with Nas If you could share the stage with any other 3 artists or bands who are still around and touring that you haven’t performed with, who would they be and why?

QUAN: Jay Z, Mary J Blidge, Lil Wayne and Kanye.

Mistajay: Where do you see the hip hop going in 2012? How do you see yourself fitting into that?

QUAN: I carve out my own lane with the gift God gave me and I don’t really concern myself with other peoples affairs or what they do cuz some of these niggas crazy.

What are your future plans? Continue to build my brand and broaden my fan base, be it a major label or indepedent thru my KingzNation company.

Mistajay: Any last thoughts?

QUAN: Love is a verb. Friendship is one sould and 2 bodies.  Keep God first. Make ten save five. DonferQuan is the Bo$$ and Kingz Nation is the mafia…

Mistajay: Where can fans follow you and get your music?

QUAN: They can find out everything they need to know about me and hear my music at:, holla at me on Twitter @donferquan
