What’s your sign?
I’m a Sagittarius, born Dec 9, 1992.

Most underrated song that, in your opinion, should be a classic?
My single, “L.A.D.I.E.S,” was created for all the women in the world for the powers of their existence that may be overlooked on a daily basis.

Biggest compliment you’ve ever gotten from a fan?
That Q. Smalls music is “adult kid friendly,” said by DJ OJ. I create music for everyone to enjoy themselves with content that shies away from cursing and negative notations—all about uplifting positivity and love for all!

What do you sing in the shower?
I like to sing “Cool it Now” by New Edition at the top of my lungs.

Favorite cereal?
My favorite cereal would have to be Lucky Charms.

What is your favorite piece to perform?
My favorite piece to perform would my single, “Go Do What You Do.” I feel as though it gets the crowd hype. It’s very motivational and educational for everyone to vibe to.

At what venue do you most like to perform?
So far in my career, Poseidon’s Rooftop Bar is the venue that’s top notch. I would have never thought two years ago I would have my first album release concert there. It is outstanding from the location to the upscale establishment the Serg Group created.

Most requested song at shows?
Everyone loves the “L.A.D.I.E.S” song. It’s just undeniable coming from a love and unity standpoint.

First concert you attended?
Still haven’t experienced one yet, unfortunately.

Favorite artist?
My all-time favorite artist is Michael Jackson.

Place you go to get away from it all?
The most peaceful place for me would be the Spanish Wells dock—the natural scenery and island breeze is amazing out there for meditating and creating.

Do you tweet, gram, or book?
I’m mainly promoted on Instagram and Facebook. My music page is young_gullah843, and my main Facebook page is Quintin Smalls.

Finish this verse as if it were the hook of a song: “Sally went down to the bayou…”
Sally went down to the bayou
On a beautiful day while the skies are blue.
She meditates and catches the vibes
On a beautiful day at the bayou.

Who would star as you in the epic retelling of your life on film?
Shameik Moore would definitely be my choice because of his outgoing and very versatile personality like mine.

First instrument you learned to play?
The first instrument I learned to play was the flute in elementary school.

Song you were thrilled to finally master?
“Paradise,” a song I did on my first project featuring Sara Burns and engineered by John Cranford. The song was such a huge collaboration of a group of people on this small island showing the world our paradise on Earth.

What do you wish you knew more about?
My Native Gullah family history and the main changes of our family’s way of living from the past to the way we are living today as Native Americans.”

What animal do you most identify with?
I would say a black panther—for their ability to still be a dominate force in the jungle alongside the lions tigers, etc.

If you got super-famous and had to change your name, what would your new name be?
I would call myself Travis Porter. It’s a name of a hip-hop group I grew up listening to.

What famous musician would you love to sing a duet with?
I would be very thankful to do a duet with Lauryn Hill. Her voice is so amazing; it brings light to any situation or vibe.
