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, but he didn't issue a proper solo debut until 2012, after he signed with Malaco. The Manual was issued that November with guest appearances from Styles P and former Bad Boy labelmate Faith Evans. It debuted at number 28 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
