Hi Kadeem, so great to have you join us again. For folks who might have missed our earlier conversations, can you please take a minute to briefly introduce yourself?
I’m Prince-Kadeem Quick (Prince-Kay) for short. I’m a Zimbabwean native I’m a producer for artists I originated from upstate New York, I gotten chance to travel the world as teenager my dad was in the military so kind of gotten the lucky travel to different countries and experience different cultures. When I was 20, I started taking piano lessons and as I worked full time at a local vinyl/music store. Customers would often come in and ask me about different vinyls we will have long conversations about great artists on the vinyls they be blown away how much I’m musical inclined with different eras of music.
What were your parents like during your childhood?
My mother went to college off and on while I was growing up and she loved learning, getting her Master’s Degree in Education. It doesn’t sound like much, but in the 60’s and 70’s women in college a very huge thing especially during those times where women especially (black women) wasn’t so much appreciate it for their hard work. So, my mom was always encouraging to put school first before anything. Far as for my pops he’s good dude hard working military man sometimes cracks lame jokes overall cool dude.
Can you describe the best date you’ve ever had?
Man that’s tough one I had many great date with some of most gorgeous women the universe can offer but I had to speak on the best days I ever had I’d when I was fifth-teen and I took my first love to a dinner date and she order a steak on me on our first date haha I knew this women was awesome from there.
What made you get into music? And how often do you write your songs?
I always love music since I was little kid watching soul train and Apollo performances I was just fascinated of all the male and female artists performed on stage I knew I wanted to do something sorta of that either performing or producing behind scenes. So ultimately, I end doing just that. When it comes songs writing weirdly most song writing I do when I’m watching anime, I love how every anime tells a story so I incorporate that into my song writing because all my songs are in depth story telling.
Have you ever wished to meet any fictional character in real life? Which one?
Great question if anyone I want to meet as a fictional character would be Stefan Urkelle played by the legendary Jaleel White from the 90s sitcom family matters why is because I basically tailor my whole style off from him I love his smooth clean cut gentleman style he present it on the show. He had the women fall in his arms like rain drops from the sky.
How do you get creative?
To be honest how I get creative is feeding off other creative people energy for an example like if I see one of my friends or see some random person on the internet doing something entertainment it instantly really gets my creative juices going from there I’m ready to work something creative. That’s the beauty of having creative people in this world.
What is your greatest inspiration? And What is your dream collaboration?
I many great inspirations but I would say one of my greatest inspiration is my legendary aunt Rozalla she is truly amazing singer and her voice just knocks me out! I love her hustle 30 years of music career for her is very inspiring. Dream collaboration um if Michael Jackson’s. Was still living I would love to do some musical work with him the man was a musical genius and a legend but other than him I would like to work with Chris Brown, Marques Houston ,T pain, my aunt Rozalla Madonna,User Janet Jackson’s. Or Justin Bieber don’t give me shit about Justin Bieber (JB) is cool and definitely a legend in the making.
