Born January 7th 1982 in Harvey, Illinois, William Martez Mims "sheila Mims and W.C. Butler’s only child was raised a little bit of everywhere after a 2 months in Harvey his mom moved them to 55th and Indiana in Chicago Illinois. there in a one bedroom apartment they spent a year only too move back to the south surburbs Robbins. Here Q-Storm went to elementary school where students were mostly white but a good experience (Nathan Hale in crestwood illinois) after elementary Mother moved south to the surburb Chicago Heights where Q-Storm attended Roosevelt, Washington jr. high school and Bloom high School. As a only child Q-Storm mostly kept to himself a few acquiantes here and there but none authetic…Neither was family his mother is and always will be the best friend he ever has! William later took classes to learn “gung-fu”. His influence like among others was Bruce Lee after understanding the chinese way of fighting william advance to learn “wing chun” a style bruce lee himself started with. After 3 years of training William stopped but still has knowledge and skill (dont get it twisted) lol After high school and many more experiences i’ll leave out lol q-storm got into writing poetry as another form of expressing himself since drawing wasnt 100% ventalation. his poems became prophetic and later he reunited with high school mate Oozay Fuam “luis valadez” Oozay showed him the “self-style” of poetry and writing ryhmes. A well-prophetic time turnin William Mims into Q-storm. in 2006 Q, hooked up with “michael Jones” to create the undeground album "Wordz of Venim Off Michael’s “self label Streetwise Records”. After that Q-Storm began to grow more focused into the music driving out everyone who really wasnt serious about what they said they were. But he needed his own studio set up to really get himself out the way he knew how. In the summer of 2007, Q-Storm built his own studio, taught himself to record and mix and master his own tracks. The creation of the album he would call “The Reinvention” would come in to play. At the top of 2008, Q-Storm discovers “Giovanni’s” a place where local talent is showcased, his first chance on his birthday Jan 7th, he would be known to others. After numerous of shows and local street buzzes, as well as many collabs from east coasts artists from New Jersey, Baltimore Maryland, & New York. Q-Storm on August 22nd 2008 released his first album that represented him fully “The Reinvention.” The album displays as a Complete transformation in mind, body, and soul. Speaking on personal experiences to real life captured tablets in the forms of songs like "Long Time Coming, 4Wordz, Illuminati Politics, Circulate, Just to hard, Getting Stronger, If You Aint Rollin, and many more. After the year cruises with more attention towards the album 2009 comes as Q-Storm branches out in the mist of becoming more knows, now his face is seen as "the emcee" Q-Storm networks with Chicago's underground on a wider range. From North to east west and South to South Surburbs. 2009 Q-Storm began to prep a album called "I Declare War". In the entire year of 2009 he suffered thru heartache, pain, rage and confusion, with songs having more rage and anger aggression channeled thru each experience which caused him to seep in and out at times waiting for allah to mold him into a new "reinvention" and he did.. New year hits 2010. Today Q-Storm is reborn! He's molded into a new being, studies under the 5% nation of gods and earth, connected with more promoters and gods and goddess representing the essence of the music in its organic form and have scored from open mics to headlines on stage within the Chicago underground.The “Chicago Vindicator” is here. He is currently finishing his sophmore album “I Declare War.” the revolutionary that the entire universe will shift energy to listen to...Q-Storm remains Ambitious as the start of the the new beginning is set in stone...stay tuned
