We can only imagine how many heads shook up and down saying “yes” as they read the title above. How could you not know Quincy? Although many reference him when speaking of his music, fashion and media mogul parents and previous “My Stunna 16” MTV special, Quincy should never be mistaken for ‘living in their shadows’.
At just 23-years young, Quincy Brown is a mini-mogul himself. With titles such as producer, photographer, director, singer, model, actor, philanthropist and co-founder of his own production company, FourXample Productions, Quincy continues to evolve into an unstoppable force by pursuing each and every passion and aiming for nothing less than success at the finish line. In the years leading up to his prime, Quincy is already acting in feature films produced by praised music superstar producer, Pharrell and Oscar award winning actor Forrest Whitaker, worked along side world-renowned actors such as Lawrence Fishbourne and new generation “It” girls like Keke Palmer all while still managing to be the face of global brands as a model.
Being that Quincy stems from one of music’s smartest businessmen, Sean “Diddy” Combs and is one of the main reasons the world grew to know, love and respect the legendary Notorious B.I.G, it’s only fitting that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to musical talent. One of his favorite memories begins with being a young kid in the studio with Biggie, not knowing at the time he was witnessing history.
In 2012 Quincy released his debut single, “Stay Awhile” which featured singer, Kendre, and had a visual that starred model, Jasmine Sanders as his lead girl. The song was not only smooth enough to gain major blog and magazine site recognition from sites such as VIBE, ThisIsRnB, RyanSeacrest.com, and Rap-Up, but it also climbed the Top 10 Countdown on BET’s 106 and Park and remained on the show’s countdown for a number of weeks. Quincy followed up his 2012 hit with his 2013 single, “The First Thing” which was produced by Daniel Ware and written by both Daniel and Quincy. Collectively, both videos ranked in over a million streams on YouTube adding up to Quincy’s rabid large social following reaching over 2million+ followers and dozens of dedicated fan pages.
Moving into 2014, Quincy has kicked into gear his philanthropist role by coordinating the First Annual Celebrity Kickball Charity Event and the First Annual Celebrity Flag Football Charity Event with singer Chris Brown which brought together talents such as Floyd Mayweather, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Ne-Yo, DJ Khaled, Trey Songz, Paris Hilton, Bow Wow, Tyga, Omarion, Amber Rose, Terrell Owens, Nelly, The Game, and many more to raise money for Chris’ Symphonic Love, which supports and creates art programs for the youth, and Quincy’s charity of choice, Best Buddies, which is dedicated to creating opportunities of employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Quincy has done a magnificent job at highlighting what’s important when reaching the plateau that someone of his nature has by giving back to those who may not have the luxury.
Today Quincy is both behind and in front of the camera with his FourXample Production crew, recently wrapping up his directorial debut of pop-singer and MRok Music Group signee, Elle Winter’s latest video, “No Words” which features his brother Christian Combs and song produced by GRAMMY award winning duo, the Midi Mafia. Quincy is also signed to MRok Music Group and is preparing to unveil both the audio and official video for his new single, “Friends First” which features Bad Boy recording artist/rapper and international star, French Montana. His new album is slated for a 2015 release which also features G-Eazy and more.
