George Hundall (born March 4, 1997), better known by his stage name Q Da Fool, is an American rapper from Largo, Maryland signed to Roc Nation.[1]

Music career[edit]

Q Da Fool began his career in 2013 as part of the rap group Pakk Boyz.[1] He released his first solo project Trap Fever in 2015.[2] Following his departure he formed his own rap collective known as Rich Shootas in 2017.[3] The rapper released four mixtapes throughout that year.[4]

He gained attention in 2017 following the release of his mixtape 100 Round Goon on May 17.[3] On December 22, The Washington Post proclaimed 2017 as "The Greatest Year In DMV Rap History" and included Q Da Fool's single "Numbers" as part of its list of 25 songs, which also included fellow Pakk Boys alumn Shabazz PBG's track "Package".[5]

In February 2018, the rapper announced an EP titled 100 Keys with famed producer Zaytoven.[6] On May 14, Billboard reported on Q Da Fool having signed a deal with Roc Nation.[1] He later revealed "When I started working with my manager Terrance, who also works as Gucci Mane's manager, he was working with Zaytoven and told him about me. He sent me a beat and I did a song then sent it back. But he sent me like 50 beats!" He recorded the tracks he sent back in the span of a week at his home studio.[7]
