They ran the underground gambling circuit in the tri-borough for decades. Until he relocates to college life in the south bringing his luck and fortune to an uncertain future.

Why Queens, NY? (Aren’t you from Brooklyn?). In retrospect, I really wanted this character to come from Harlem, NY purely for the history and legacy of that borough. Then I decided I wanted to take the other side of the lifelong debate of which borough was better – Brooklyn or Queens. It was a rivalry that started way before Jay-Z and Nas, it was the MC Shan vs. KRS (BDP) battle that prompted me to take the side of Queens. Let’s make one thing clear – Brooklyn reigns supreme! But to challenge myself, I wanted to write from a different perspective a side that would force me to do my homework, force me to listen, force me to grow.

Quintin Bennet was born out of fashion, music/arts that surround the city the true definition of the word “Urban.”
