As his banger “OG Bobby Johnson” tears up clubs across the country, HHW caught up with Que to learn more about the young spitter’s recording process …

HHW: What are some of the ways you prepare before going into a studio session?
QUE: I try to get some rest so that I can go in with a clear head and do what I need to do , because if I’m tired it’s hard to think of many things. So I definitely get my rest, and sometimes I get ideas at a random time. I may be out in the club on a random day and I will get an idea that I can use. I‘ll put in the notes on my phone, I’ll skim though those before I start and think about what I came up with and jot it down. For the most part really that is it. I’ll have me a bottle of Ciroc or Henn, a black and yeah, that’s it.
HHW: Sonny Digital has reportedly retired from making beats, what other producers have you been in the lab working with?
QUE: I have been working with V-Weezy, D-rich, Metro Boomin (the producer of “Karate Chop” ft. Future), I have been working with Bobby Johnson beats, that’s who did “ OG Bobby Johnson.”
HHW: How did the idea for the song “ OG Bobby Johnson” come about?
QUE: Well the producers name is OG Bobby Johnson, so that clicked. That gave me an idea and actually I just went in and started to have fun with it, I started to vibe with the idea and then wrote some tracks. I had watched the movie a few days before the song, so all that played a part of the making of the song. The video is out now on World Star.
HHW: How does it feel now that you are getting attention for “OG Bobby Johnson” being that when you did “Young N-gga” with the Migos not many people associated you with that record?
QUE: It’s all good. You have to keep on until you get recognition, you have to keep going to prove yourself, that’s definitely a good feeling, I just had to come back and prove myself and can do it again.
HHW: What are you working on now?
QUE: I am working on my solo project that drops at the top of the year, called Who Is Que, I am still working with Sonny Digital. I dropped a video on World Star called ‘Same B—h” with Tracy T. Stay tuned to find out the DJ that will be hosting mixtape.
