the new hip hop.

QN5 Music was original created by Tonedeff in 1997 as an imprint to independently release his debut project, The Monotone EP. In 2000, the QN5 idea was redeveloped and formed into the artist collective behind today’s movement to bring ‘the new hip hop’ to listeners. Since then, QN5 has established itself as one of the most refreshing, energetic and inventive brands in Hip Hop history.

With one of the most devout and outspoken fan communities in music today, QN5 Music has proven, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that art-driven albums with a strict focus on fan interaction are the keys to success in an ailing industry poisoned by quantity-over-quality.

The label presents releases by Tonedeff, CunninLynguists, PackFM, Substantial, Mr. SOS, & Kokayi — all at the top of their creative game. With more than 46 full-length releases under their belt and a roster boasting triple-threat solo artists — most of which jump between emceeing, producing and singing without flinching – QN5 Music is quite simply the most versatile hip hop label assembled in recent memory.

Featuring a top-notch, musically diverse set of in-house producers — including the legendary Domingo (Big Pun, Rakim, Tony Yayo, Fat Joe, Kool G. Rap), hungry newcomers like Deacon The Villain (KRS-1, Masta Ace), Tonedeff, the Grammy-nominated Kokayi, & the internationally-acclaimed, Kno (CunninLynguists, Maroon 5, Lil Scrappy) — QN5 is strong in all stylistic facets of the genre.
