TQ
	Terrance Quaites, MC (US)

	was raised in the church (he sang in the choir) but his real education came from the 
	streets, where the first wave of hip-hop music became the soundtrack to his life. "From 
	Monday to Saturday I was hangin', partyin', chasing girls, getting in trouble, and 
	straight-up acting the fool," he admits. "But on Sunday my mother dragged me out of bed to go 
	to church. That's where I developed my singing voice and learned how to make 
	people feel me."
