International recording artist Qui510 ( pronounced KEY FIVE TEN) is the featured vocalist on our slammin' Funk tune "FreakQui". Qui, an Oakland, Ca. got her start in the Pentecostal & Baptist Black churches and was singing lead by the time she was 5 years old. As a Teen, fascinated with breakdancing, rapping and the HipHop culture, Qui, then known as "TriQui Di (Tricky D)" formed a breakdance/rap group with her brother Shunnie T called, "DEF SHOCK MC's" . The two became crowd favorites winning talent shows and showcases across the SF Bay Area. Upon graduating high school Qui was offered several solo record deals and signed with independent label MFTP Records.
At MFTP, Qui was under the tutelage of the Almighty legendary DJ, Radio personality and musician Charles "Natty Prep" Douglas", who was instrumental in working with Timex Social Club and Digital Underground and would light the fire to earn TriQui Di her rightful place as a Bay Area Musical aristocrat. After Natty's sudden death from cancer, TriQui left MFTP and signed with Lá Tribú/Sony Music Group in Europe. Qui510 has become a definite force to be reckoned with in the Entertainment industry,both on and off stage,so we are glad to welcome her to the OTBMusic family!
