Your style is of New York’s traditional boom-bap sound. As someone from NYC, do you feel that it’s a responsibility to carry on that legacy or is that how you naturally flow?
QD: It's just how I naturally flow honestly being that 90's hip-hop always was a big influence on my music but it's not necessarily a responsibility .
Other than Nicki Minaj, there hasn’t been a strong female voice in rap for some time. Why do you think that is and what would need to happen for that to change?
QD: It's 'cause the industry is too busy co-signing these wack rap bitches talking about your everyday basic bullshit and the audience for these people are brainwashed and don't know any better so they follow that basic bitch aesthetic of female rap. For this to change the industry must co sign CUNTMAFIA.
What’s your process when putting a song together?
QD: I usually have to hear the beat I'm working with a couple of times to actually start. Usually, I'll have something written already and work it into the track .
What music in 2013 personally encouraged you to keep pushing?
QD: None .
Why does the game need Quay Dash?
QD: Put me in a room with my so called competition and you'll see ;)
Favorite food spots in the BX?
QD: I love Giovanni's near Grand Concourse. It's really tasty Italian food introduced to me by my best friend. I also love Crown Fried Chicken—typical around-the-corner grub food after you just finished blowing a couple of spliffs to the face.
