They have been blazing their way across the West Coast and will now take their assault global.

They have appeared at notable ski competitions, the Honda Sessions and the Winter Dew Tour and countless other epic parties.

Quotes & Jared Ming
Quotes is from the north side of the Denver area. Jared Ming grew up in the southern tip of the city. They first met in the middle, as part of a musical theater production at Metro State, and since have formed one of the city’s most cutting-edge musical groups.
A rap-and-vocal duo, Quotes and Jared Ming began to establish themselves on the city’s music scene in the summer of 2013. They performed several times at quaint Herman’s Hideaway, one of the city’s most notable venues for aspiring artists, as part of the Step Up & Get Live contest.
The group advanced to the finals in a field of more than 40 competitors and opened for national act Mix Master Mike in the fall of 2013 at Summit Music Hall. The bookings have increased since, and the band released its first video for Crumbling Down in Dec. 2013.
Quotes, aka James Miller, has drawn comparisons to Drake and Childish Gambino, performers who have taken on the multiple roles of rapping, singing and acting. Quotes cites many influences, but was first drawn to the industry when listening to Tupac as a youngster.
“He could really paint pictures with his lyrics,” Quotes said.
Quotes graduated from Horizon High School in Thornton, Colo. where he was heavily involved in the theater, including a well-publicized production of High School Musical.
Ming competed in American Idol in 2012 and advanced to the Hollywood rounds after being selected from an Aspen, Colo.-based preliminary round. He also has appeared in a national commercial for the Coors Brewing Co. He attended Chaparral High School in Parker, Colo. and has been a longtime performer, both as a singer and an actor.
While rap-and-vocal duos are somewhat prevalent in collaborations (Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco and Guy Sebastian, etc.), it is uncommon for a group to be composed of a fulltime rapper in addition to a range-style vocalist. In that regard, Quotes and Jared Ming are groundbreakers in the field.
Hashim Mustafa aka Ha$h Originally from Richmond, VA currently resides in Denver, co. Been in the game since 98. Part of a trio called Mic Life who definitely made some noise in the underground and more than a few labels expressed intrest in while the group was signed to the management agency talent 2k. The group met in junction city ks and as the trio still remain a group Ha$h and Fashow are currently working on solo projects. I just wanna provide listeners with the element that's been missing from hip hop for the longest and that's realness. To me rappers nowadays lack substance and I'm here to bring it back to the fore front.
