Q. Garvin Is Putting On For His City With His New EP ‘Just Know We Good’



Q. Garvin has come a long way since his start in music. After beginning years as a music manager, he uses his skills to create his music. His new seven-track EP titled Just Know We Good accurately describes his growth and willingness to expand his sound to reach his goals. After receiving co-signs from some of his area’s top athletes and rappers, he is poised to step up his production as an emcee. The Alexandria-bred recording artist/entrepreneur is learning the game and implementing each skill he has been taught.

His new EP speaks about his shift in mental while working to become one of the greats. Although he partakes in the party lifestyle, he still knows the benefits of stacking your bread and making great business moves. While repping his home brand SUCKAFREE, he’s ready to take his music to the masses. The talented young creative sat with us to talk about his new project, plans for the future, and more.

Check out the smooth conversation here below!

Introduce yourself to the world that does not know who you are yet.

I’m Q. Garvin, better known as Q. If you haven’t heard of me yet, don’t worry. You’re still early.

Your new tape is solid; what is your favorite record off the album, and why?

Picking one song from this album is hard for me, and I hope it’s just as hard for the people who listen…but if I had to choose one track, I’d say “Acting Different.” I could pour my heart out and give my supporters another side of me. It’s a very authentic and vulnerable song.

What do you want fans to take from your new effort?

This tape was for me at the end of the day; I’m glad I got to share it with the world.

Where are you from? Also, how does your city help shape your sound?

I’m from Alexandria, Virginia- which is part of the DMV. My music is profoundly shaped by where/how I grew up, and if you listen closely enough, you’ll hear the influence of my hometown in my sound. I take pride in putting AVA on the map.

Who are some artists that influence your creative output?

Drake, Lil Baby, J Cole, and Kendrick are a few of my favorites off the top of my head. I’m really into R&B at this point in my life, so artists like SZA, Snoh Aalegra, and Sabrina Claudio get listened to a lot when I’m in my creative bag. I must listen to different genres, as I like to keep my ideas fresh. Side note: Nipsey Hussle’s business infrastructure significantly impacts my creativity.

 What is your goal with music in general?

To change my life, my family’s life, and anyone touched by the music. I must create music from an authentic place. I can take my music to the next level, so I’ll continue to work hard, stay consistent, and grow my “ecosystem.”

Who are some of your dream collaborators?

Metro Boomin, Tay Keith, Yachty, Bryson Tiller, Brent, SZA, Kendrick, Drake, Cordae, Wale, Lightshow; the list goes on, and there are many artists out there that I want to work with, even if it’s just writing or sitting in a room to see how they create. There are also talented artists in the DMV I’d love to work with.

 What are your plans after this project?

I’m currently working on two projects that I plan on dropping next year. One project includes music that’s more up-tempo and “feel good,” I’ll reveal more later. I’m developing something that will last forever, and this is just the beginning—big shout out to Slink, Black Cobain, T.W.O, D$G, and the whole SUCKAFREE team.

Where can we follow you on social media?

I’m the most active on Instagram.
