Q6: It's a pleasure, I appreciate y'all having me!
Please introduce yourself for the limited few who may not be aware.
Q6: I'm Marquis Daniels on the basketball court, but in the rap world I'm "Q6" or Lambo6 or you can call me 6, it's all the same!
With that being said I guess the Next question Now that’s out of the way which came First Balling or Rhyming?
Q6: I always played ball 1st rapping was always a passion, my patnas and I used to freestyle late night on the block, but I always played sports.
How do you manage both careers?
Q6: Managing both careers really isn't hard for me; I record in the summer and write during the season, after games on those flights to different cities, guess u can say all my lyrics fly hahahahaha
Do you think there is a worldly misconception of Athletes turned Artist based off of those who attempted to balance both previously?
Q6: I really don’t like to use basketball as a crutch, I used Q6 before anybody even put a face with it, so when people heard me rap they wouldn't automatically say here go another athlete wit too much time. Now it's like oh damn he really can rap, I approach the booth the same way I hit the court I gotta go hard every time it's always somebody judging and ready to be like he can’t rap, so I'm a demand respect the same way I came in the game!
For those who haven’t heard you spit as of yet explain your style and sound?
Q6: My style and rhyming varies, even though I'm from the south I'm not afraid to switch my style up, I don’t want to bore my listeners by rapping or talking about the same thing!
What are some of the major differences between Q6 the Rapper and Marquis Daniels the Professional Athlete?
Q6: Q6 the rapper is going to give you the other side of him, I'm a crossover and a jump shot from canteen meals ya feel me, it ain't nothing to brag about or anything I'm blessed to be able to play ball and provide for my family, but as a athlete I know how to separate the 2 it's a time and place for it all, I respect both sides of the game
