Atlanta, GA, April 29, 2008.
Do It!: A Documentary is a real life account filmed over the course of six entertaining months, following independent hip hop icon Quanstar through his day to day journey toward his ultimate goal of achievement for himself not only as a performer and an artist, but as a father and a man. It takes on a very personal effect, filmed intimately and independently not only by the film's co-producer but, at times, by Quanstar himself.

He welcomes his audience into his grueling everyday experience as he balances the many aspects that come with the career path he has chosen. He single handedly runs his record label out of a tiny bedroom in his father's house, juggles two part-time jobs, shares joint custody of his toddler son -...
"

So he lives in his parents' basement, is a baby daddy and works at both McDonald's *and* Burger King.

A recorded emcee? You mean like any 12 year old with a computer? Or did he actually *sell* something out of his parents' basement?

But he does seem skilled at self-promotion at least.

I hope the little mush brains learned some "street cred" there, so they can look like even bigger losers parading main street. What next -- an intro course on drug dealing and carjacking called "entrepreneurship"?

Sounds like someone is jealous. You have a lot to say for someone who obviously has nothing to brag about.

I am an internationally known movie star. What have you accomplished Crack Man? A couple of hourly jobs in the big city of Bennville? Woohoo! Livin' large!

Like I said. You have nothing to brag about or you would. The queen of shale and the other queen always brag but you never do. Why? Speaks volumes.

You must be concerned, because you always ask.

Why pile on the substandard losers of Bennville?

Hey Marky,

I found a picture of you under your stage name:

That's quite a tan you've developed.

No wonder you are so interested in a rap story in the bananer.

Stevie, maybe you know Marky from the hood?
