As a former street hustler, Quan (aka FerQuan) understands the horrors and consequences of that lifestyle better than the average civilian. With a new lease on life, the self-proclaimed "Rap-Sing King” is now a savvy business owner, actor and musician dedicated to sharing his personal testimonies through music and serving as the voice of reason for today's younger generation. He recently stopped by the High Off Life TV studios in Atlanta for an exclusive performance, in which Quan effortlessly wields both rhyme and melody, detailing the poisonous mindset of someone torn between the spoils of the street life, and walking a straight and narrow path.

Quan's High Off Life performance arrives on the heels of his long-awaited King Quan Project: Barz & Balladz LP. Released on all digital streaming platforms via Kingz Nation/Soulspazm on Friday, August 26, 2022, the full-length project is a soulful street classic and the consummate display of skill and versatility of an artist fueled by hunger and determination. From melodic raps about the life of a street hustler over hard hitting trap beats; to sultry slow jams that fuse R&B, Neo-Soul, and Trap-Soul to perfection; Barz & Balladz runs the gamut of modern music.
Quan is best known for his 2005 hit with Nas, “Just A Moment,” rapper, singer/songwriter, self-taught multi-instrumentalist and producer, Quan (aka FerQuan, fka Don FerQuan) has been championed by his hometown of Newport “Bad News,” Virginia and Hip-Hop heads around the country. A reformed street hustler, Quan channels the traumatizing experiences of his former lifestyle into soulful Hip-Hop and R&B. From facing life imprisonment at age 16, parenthood, and the death of his son, Quan bares his heart and soul in his music, yielding rare grit and authenticity.
