Quincy B who just released his latest single, “I Pledge”, a duet with Musulyn Myers a.k.a Sweetz, rose to fame in 2013 following his debut recording of the dancehall hit "My Dream", opposite Scientific. Despite his youth, Quincy was a strong advocate for musician’s rights and encouraging other artists to have lawyers represent them when signing endorsement deals.
