QNC Duo Dynamic
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Grand Central
While they repped Strong Island to the fullest, the late ‘80s crew JVC Force was among the first hip-hop acts to find their core fanbase overseas. These days that‘s the norm for underground rap. It‘s particularly true for QNC, a duo featuring former JVC DJ/producer Curt Cazal (now also an MC) and Q Ball, a fellow Central Islip, NY MC whose voice sounds a whole lot like Jay-Z. On Duo Dynamic, the pair brings the heat ‘95-style-hard rhymes over hard beats-only now there‘s references to Irish girls asses and wilin‘ in Scotland, and their Manchester-based label is run by Mark Rae of Rae & Christian. Guru, M.O.P. and Camp Lo all make appearances but the heat is in the beats, produced by Cazal in the new home studio he‘s dubbed "D&D Studios East."
