Quin NFN has had to pave his own way. Hailing from Austin, Texas, the 19-year-old didn’t have many examples to look towards for guidance when it came to making it in rap. “Other rappers in other cities have people they can look up to who already did what they’re doing,” he says. “Austin has never really had that.” When most people think of Texas rap, they likely think of Houston’s rich history and modern day success. But Quin is steadily changing this narrative, forging a new path at the top of his city, one hit song at a time.
