(Newport News, VA) Clayt, born Clayton Duncan, is a Virginia native hailing from Newport News. Growing up downtown, an area usually associated with crime and poverty, he first discovered his sense of ambition from playing basketball. Although Clayt can recall singing Michael Jackson in his living room, and being a class clown as long as he can remember, a career in entertainment never crossed his mind. What was once a hobby, eventually grew into a passion, an obsession even. As Clayt has continued to evolve into the artist and the person he is today, he’s found that his mission has become to inspire people to be confident in themselves, and focus on the highs rather than the lows. His overall goal is to encourage others to embrace their own passions, and establish an art culture in Virginia that he felt was missing in his youth. Clayt is not only rapper, but an inspirational figure and pioneer for his home state.

Quincy Taylor Brown, (born June 4,1991) is an American R&B singer/songwriter/rapper who is more professionally known as Quincy. He is the son of 80's R&B singer, Al B. Sure and the adopted son of music and fashion mogul, Sean "Diddy" Combs. He was named after his godfather, the legendary Quincy Jones. Quincy was born in Manhattan, NY but was raised in Columbus, GA. He currently resides in Los Angeles. Being the son of a singer and growing up surrounded by different artists, Quincy was naturally expected to follow in his father's footsteps. Instead, he decided to try his hand at rapping and released the song "Da Fly Way" ft Yung Joc in 2008. It wasn't until his late grandmother told him "you have a voice" and that he "needed to sing" that he decided that to pursue singing. Quincy stated in The Harbor TV interview that it took him a while to pursue the singing because he was scared to let someone hear his voice because he wasn't even comfortable with himself. He has stated in interviews that his biggest musical influences are Biggie, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Luther Vandross. Quincy's sound is a mix of Al B. Sure with a little bit of Drake.
Between 2009-2014, Quincy released his mixtape "Nothing Special" as well as songs, "Voicemail" and "Stay Awhile" ft Kendre which appeared on BET's 106 & Park. In December 2014, Quincy released "Friends First" ft French Montana which premiered on SKEETV and Power 106, is his second most successful song to date. Quincy has also performed overseas as well as in Canada. In April 2016, Quincy released the free rap track titled "Blue Dot" (ft electric guitarist, Xeryus Gittens) in which he talks about "topping off the night" with his dad's widely popular Ciroc vodka. Blue Dot is a change of pace from his other songs because of the electric guitar infusion. Quincy is currently working on his debut album which doesn't have a release date set and plans to go on tour. On June 24, 2016, he formally announced that he is now signed to Bad Boy/Epic Records.
