Koo Qua is an artist who maintains the same substance in her lyrics as she does in her image.
An MC since the age of 17 years old, the Aurora, Colorado native has been a mainstay in the world of underground rhyme slaying. Able to maintain her stature alongside the boys of rap coming out of Aurora, Koo Qua has grown her talent since the inception of her first album, 2007’s Chunk of My Mind.
In demeanor and also on the microphone, Koo Qua is graceful and determined. Her rhymes stand out because of the tenacity in her words and succinct structure in her verses. Her collaborations with other Colorado artists have included Julox, The Marksmen, Mikey T, and others who appeared on her sophomore album Grown A$$ Woman.
The first breakthrough single was an appearance alongside Aurora’s DGirl and Landy for the track “BGT” (Bad Girls Turf). Qua credits her affiliation with Albeez 4 Sheez and ACo Records for streamlining her dream into a viable career as a musician.
Here she is as a featured artist on Bash’s “Lit” single and check out her Ratchet 4 No Reason mixtape, out now on livemixtapes.com.
