How do you get something from nothing; forge a path where there was none; build an empire among ruins despite everything stacked against you?
Water From Turnips is the first hand account of this written in heart wrenching, conversational prose covering dreams and goals, love and loss, heartbreak and triumph. Quanstar tells his story with unbridled candor while baring his innermost thoughts of where he has come from, what life changing moments and experiences have shaped him, the dreams he’s chasing, and the driving forces behind those dreams; and eventhough it is evident that this particular turnip is as dry as it gets, as the pages turn you witness the heart and thoughts of a true fighter.
Juggling jobs to pay the bills and fund his music career, organizing his own tours and promotions, and raising a son, Quanstar remains one of underground Hip Hop’s hardest working and most prolific icons that you will ever meet or read about, which in his words, makes him "...the greatest emcee to never be signed".
"Water From Turnips" is the story about how far conviction can take you, and shows that every turnip has its share of water if you only squeeze hard enough.
