Artist Info


Powered by Audioscrobbler™Kareem Dawkins (stage name QQ), born 9 March 1994 in Kingston, Jamaica, is a singjay and deejay, mainly in the sexualized dancehall genre. However, his greatest hit is a reggae song with social criticism, the 2004 song 'Poverty'. Then he was only 10 years, youngest so far to reach Jamaican charts top. 'Poverty' is nyahbinghi (nyabinghi) reggae – based on the meditative, distinct drum beats at Rastafarians' spiritual meetings. 'Corruption' is in same style. Today he has some success in Europe with social lyrics. On Jamaica he is mainly a dancehall star with songs as 'One Drop', 'Tan Tuddy', 'Tip Pon Yuh Toe', 'Ghetto Gal'. His 'Skip to My Lu' became a hit in Kenya 2011. He toured in Africa that year. Similar artists as QQ is Charm, Aidona and RDX.

At 10-years old, singing sensation QQ set a record as the youngest person in Jamaica to have a hit song, 'Poverty'. Apart from being an anthem in the dancehalls, 'Poverty'. Has been climbing the charts and dominating the airwaves in both Jamaica and England with its food-for-thought lyrics.

The late Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Brown, held this previous title as the youngest Jamaican with a hit song, with his big hit 'No Man Is A Island' at the age of 11. QQ has been creating quite an impact on the reggae/dancehall since he hit Jamaica last May with the single 'Never Know The Use Of Her'. Since then he has been dropping some wicked tunes, including 'Mama' and 'Better Must Come'.

His newest tune, 'Stukie', is making the rounds and in heavy rotation on the airwaves. The music video for this one will be out pretty soon, as it is already in production. So pretty soon everyone will be 'stukying'. QQ continues to be a favorite on the stage show circuit and last Saturday's performance at Wolmer's Girls' barbecue was a testament to that. He had the girls frantically screaming with his every selection, and, of course, 'stukying'.
