Superstar Quamallah is from Brooklyn, New York. His father (R.I.P. Big John Patton) helped to pioneer the soul-jazz music genre.
Being an underground veteran mc/producer/DJ, Superstar Quamallah first burst onto the scene in 1998 with his Don't Call Me John EP (ABB Records), returns with a proper follow up to 2009's Invisible Man album (Brick Records) - a record which gained accolades such as a prominent feature on the BBC's Gilles Peterson's Best Of 2009 show, finished as a Top 10 seller of 2009 on UGHH.com, and was supported by two 7-inch singles and videos, eclipsing over 150,000 views on youtube alone.
SQ plays the drum machine like an instrument without the sequence/metronome/record feature. This gives the music an organic, soulful touch that he used to make the album, “Godfood: The break-fast”. His lyrics are simply honest.
He currently teach courses at u.c. Berkeley in the african american studies dept. on “hiphop culture and media appropriation”. He also write screenplays with the assistance of his writing coach Carla Wilson. Superstar Quamallah is also engaged in film projects with his brother and outstanding director, Troy Warwell.
For Talkin' All That Jazz, Quamallah is accompanied by rookie of the year candidate DeQawn and producer Izznyce. The end result of their collaboration is a truly cohesive album full of energy, noticeable chemistry between the artists, and an intent to create a distinguishable piece of work to be enjoyed for years to come. Much like Invisible Man, there are no guest spots - Quamallah and DeQawn share mic duties on each of the album's twelve tracks. Listen to it in full, and enjoy.
