As an artist, it's all about perfecting and innovating your craft. Through time you test your own limits and break through hurdles that even you, yourself, never thought you could conquer. It's this same fight, and persistence that has put Quesfire in the top spot for underground hip-hop in New York City. In 2010, even the streets spoke, naming Quesfire the 'Artist to Watch' at the Underground Music Awards. This Bronx native has gone through the trenches, and with every song, he continues to rise. A kid who used music as an escape from the untimely death of his father, and the streets that were the Bronx in the 90s, Quesfire used all of the surrounding challenges as elements to fuel his art. His words soon became a reflection of what he saw, and where he wanted to see himself in the future. His 2005 debut project, Open Book, encompassed this the most. His journey led him to share the stage with artists such as Young Lord, and more recently, Jadakiss, Fabolous, Joell Ortiz, Fred The Godson and Lloyd Banks. He's now noted in the hip-hop circuit of the entire Tri-State area, not just New York City. Countless radio appearances have given Quesfire a farther reach into the lives of his fans, as has technology. Quesfire became the first rapper ever to release a flash card project, Rap2K10. This device allows for fans to not only download songs, but exclusive videos and interviews as well. Quesfire also has an iPhone application, helping his followers to keep tabs on their favorite underground artist. 2011 Quesfire releases his a mixtape video “Re-Up” which was featured on respected sites such as Hiphopdx, Brooklyn Bodega, YO-RAPS,BLOGXILLA and countless others. .
