Quincy Talks Keeping The Family Name Up With 'The Breakfast Club'
Between his Instagram fame, fallacious tabloid features and, most importantly, his single "Friends First" with French Montana, Quincy has been steadily climbing the ladder of stardom.
The 23-year-old singer/actor sat down with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club this morning (Feb. 16) to discuss what really goes on between him and cougars, having Amber Rose as a best friend, his father's beef with Drake, turning down the role as Hakeem, as well as how he's working on creating his own lane.
In the interview, Quincy expresses the trials he had to go through to get where he is today. "I was exploring, experimenting," he said. "I was really BS'ing until I found my way. There was time I had to spend with myself." Adopted at a young age by Sean "Diddy" Combs, his mother a supermodel, and his younger brothers all 'stars' in their own right, life didn't necessarily come easy to Quincy. A family of such a pedigree requires one to maintain an excellence, or some sort of stature. Remaining humble, Quincy states "I'm just trying to keep the (family) name up."
With a circle like Amber Rose, Chris Brown, Tyga, Kelly Osbourne, and Claudia Jordan, it would be hard not to. Though the singer is not starring in the critically-acclaimed show Empire, he is, however, starring in two new films, one of which is the film Dope with A$AP Rocky. It is set to premiere in June. The other, starring Keke Palmer, comes out in April. Press play to find more on the interview up top.
