Today I am happy to welcome back QVRS to our pages here at LL with the release of his new project, Whatever You Decide. If by chance you aren’t familiar with Q, here’s a little background on the chicago artist.
“QVRS, born as Quverius Clayton, is an emerging artist hailing from Chicago’s West end. He has been the trending topic from his talents both as a producer, and a songwriter. Q was musically inspired at a very young age, writing his first song for his cousin. He grew up submerged in music which lead to him discovering his passion. He started out writing raps and always needed beats for them, therefore he began to make them himself. From all of the investments he’s made into his music, he has gained attention from magazine companies, local Chicago podcasts and even the Chicago Tribune. With mentors like Grammy award winning artist like “Rhymefest” and “No I.D” , his skills as a musician refined as time went.”
Enough about him though, lets get to the really good stuff, his music. Earlier this year, QVRS dropped a well-received ep, Parties In The Afterlife which you can listen to here. I believe that QVRS draws on inspirations from many parts of the city. I say this because he doesn’t really have one distinct sound to him. He can lull us with an R&B sound on one track, rap a mean hook with autotune on the next, and then finish up spitting mad bars. Now I’m not saying he is exactly like them, but I can hear where QVRS sounds like a hybrid of some big name artists such as PND, Ye, and Travis Scott. All in all, I’m excited to see what Q is going to have in store for the future because the talent is certainly there. All he needs is just that one song/project to really have his career takeoff. My favorite tracks from the project were, “Aristotle,” “Petty Love,” and “Indecisive,” but be sure to check out the whole project below!
