CQ The Drummer

Coming from a legendary lineage of Latin percussionists, CQ the Drummer (aka Camilo Quiñones) has established himself as a go-to drummer, percussionist and producer. From sharing the stage at 12 years of age with Tito Puente, to learning from his older brother, percussion icon Marc Quiñones (Allman Brothers, Doobie Brothers, Marc Anthony), CQ the Drummer now boasts touring credits with the likes of Los Lobos, El Dusty, and Ozomatli just to name a few. In this episode, CQ the Drummer gives the listener a glimpse of the musician life and all that comes with being an artist.

Charles also introduces a new segment, “Random Shit with Shakes” where he and artist/producer Shakes discuss the nuances of regional hip hop sound and influence.
