Q DOT // iamqdot.com
Q Dot, a piano playing, soulful crooning, rapper and producer from Seattle blends the purest form of hip hop with tasteful inflections of R&B, jazz and classical. Every bit an advocate for independent artists as he is a musician, Q Dot, working out of the Pacific Northwest’s bubbling but still lesser known Hip Hop scene also runs a music festival and internet radio station dedicated to breaking new acts. In school, Q Dot connected with a group of students experimenting with Hip Hop culture. Of that group would come a Grammy award winning producers, a gold selling producer, and award winning reality TV music producer, an Olympic gold medalist and Q Dot who himself credits a Grammy nomination to his list of accolades. When a proposed record deal with Interscope failed to materialize, Q Dot set out as an independent artist. With drive and a lot of luck he found himself having performed or toured with Hip Hop heavyweights such as: Goodie Bom, Kanye West, Zion-i, Paul Wall, Ying Yang Twins and Sir Mix a Lot amongst others. Q Dot’s music much life the names mentioned is an authentic mixture of fun, thought provoking and honest lyrics backed by hard hitting beats which is second only to a live show that features the rapper/producer playing piano and keyboard while rapping lyrics.

Many hip hop heavyweights have embraced martial arts imagery or have taken on the persona of fictional characters, but few have been so bold as to name themselves after a cult icon like Bruce Leroy. It builds up expectations, which means Tacoma’s Bruce Leroy has some big, fast kicking shoes to fill. Bruce Leroy’s strength is his flow and hooks, and his vocals are lightly, but tastily peppered with bits of screwed effects throughout the album. There are more than a few nods to the kung fu, marijuana, braggadocio, and hard times. Bruce Leroy’s lyrical techniques are solid as he makes few mistakes. Bruce Leroy goes well with some kind of weed. It’s for the heads. This is a record to get punch drunk to, get out of your head, bob your neck to the cadences of the rhymes and the boom bap of the top notch beats, and then lose it in the choruses. Leroy is fun and easy to listen to, like a Saturday morning watching a martial arts movie marathon.
