A member of 112, an R&B group that amassed seven Top Ten R&B hits and a pair of multi-platinum albums while on the Bad Boy and Def Soul labels, Atlanta native Quinnes "Q" Parker first stepped out as a solo artist in the late 2000s. His International Real Talk mixtape was released in 2008 and his solo debut album was released in 2012 under the label Malaco. The album, The Manual, was issued with guest appearances from Styles P and former Bad Boy labelmate Faith Evans. The album debuted at number 28 on Billboard's Hot R&B/hip-Hop Albums chart. .
Q and 112 were the first and most successful urban vocal group to emerge from Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy records roster. Not only was the group's 1996 debut album popular, but the group could be heard on records by such bad Boy artists as Mase and Notorious B.I.G.
