Chank Smith is a rapper that hails from Primm, Nevada. His style consists of poignant, thought-provoking lyrics that don't necessarily rhyme. Together, Chank and his producer Mr. Green keep hip-hop's boom-bap style alive.
The Kid Quest is a 22year old wordsmith with compelling, intricate, and edgy lines. He found inspiration for his craft in artists such as Tupac Curren$y, and Wiz Khalifa. Hailing from his hometown, Richmond, VA; Quest persevered through a very troubling childhood. From an absent father to a mother who struggled with crack addiction, he could have easily become a product of his environment. Instead, Quest used the turmoil from his past as motivation and fuel for his undeniable work ethic. Recently "Smell That Noise", a single from his upcoming E.P. titled "Fast N'Loud", was released. The track was so well received that it accumulated over a thousand downloads in just a week’s time. With a growing fan base circulating around his music, and much anticipated clothing line Fly High Worldwide; Quest looks to continue expanding on his following!
