VIDEO: J.Quest’s “Hapa Boy”


J. Quest has roots in Hawai’i but now calls San Francisco home and he released an EP last August called Son Of A City Worker. If you’ve heard any hip-hop from Hawai’i in the last 10 to 20 years, you’ll sense what he’s doing here with the vibe he has but he’s very much a Cali man, which you’ll hear as he describes what it means to be a “Hapa Boy”, hapa being the Hawaiian word to describe someone who is “half and half” in terms of ethnicity. The song was produced by Posafe while the video was done with director Ty Lerrani. You can check out the EP below via Bandcamp.

Kosha Dillz says no, there’s a lot to enjoy about the first work day of the week and says so in “I Love Monday”, a track he not only did with Mier Kay but Kay also helped direct the clip.
