As a genre-crossing pioneer of Reggae and Hip-Hop, South Florida’s DJ GQ has held the “official DJ” title for such big names as Akon, Mr. Cheeks and Kevin Little. Most recently, though, GQ has been on the grind with his Let ‘Em Know mixtape series (20 volumes in all) that follows in the footsteps of both Khaled and Drama. On the first single, Bad Boys, off his forthcoming full-length album, also titled Let ‘Em Know, GQ uses a unique combination of artists, enlisting DMX, along with reggae’s Junior Reid and Dawg E. Slaughter, to bring a special mixture of grit and island flair. Along with solid production from Blackout Movement (This Is Why I’m Hot), this well-done appetizer should tide you over until GQ’s main course is served sometime later this year.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
