NBA Player & Rapper Q6 Declares "Red Alert"
NBA pro player and aspiring and much talented rapper Marquis Antwane Daniels aka Q6 announces details of his brand new mixtape, "Red Alert", hosted by DJ Grady. The forthcoming release, available March 8, is spearheaded by the blazing hit single, "Sleep Over", featuring female Hip-Hop star Trina, which is in heavy rotation at radio nationwide.
Having played for the Dallas Mavericks alongside German Wunderkind Dirk Nowitzki, Indiana Pacers, Boston Celtics, Sacramento Kings, and now the Milwaukee Bucks, showcases that Marquis Daniels is a much sought after former NBA All-Rookie Team shooting guard and small forward.
But don't let the fact that he is an athlete detour from the fact that he is also a very talented rapper. Q6 is not your average athlete/musician, he raps about more than what appeals to the crowd, he raps about real life situations and experiences that he has seen and/or been through.
People can relate to the vast majority of the things Q6 speaks on in his music. He takes his craft very seriously on the court and in the studio. He hasn't pursued his passion in music publicly because he did not want to be classified under the typical athlete turned rapper stereotype because he takes his music very seriously and tries not to have his athletic career and musical career coincide.
