If you listen to this trendy project, “Life Thru My Crackberry,” you will discover the record “Finer Tings” which sings in the hook, “just want the finer things” which is repeated throughout the hook, instantly capturing the listener’s attention.

The production and melodies created the relatable sound my brother loves, and he is a big fan of the current generation of hip-hop. This was a strong indicator to me that Young John Q has an enticing sound and he knows how to attract a crowd.
“Finer Tings” has an ultra-extravagant vocal delivery, thanks to the stylistic auto-tune that was projected on top of the articulation. The witty lyricism is just a charismatic way to make up the raw story of Young John Q which is so fascinating. His intellect as an artist is displayed through the small arrangement of “Finer Things,” Young John Q’s melodic, lyrical technique covers a diverse range of passions that will set him apart as he continues to break through the industry.
