Quo was a short-lived rap group composed of Wade Robson (born 1982) and DeWayne Turrentine (born 1979) that was signed to Michael Jackson's Epic Records sub-label, MJJ Music during the explosion of kid rap duos. The duo came together in 1994 and released the single "Blowin' Up (Don't Stop the Music)", which became a minor hip hop hit, charting on both the Hot Rap Songs and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. On October 25, 1994, the duo's self-titled album was released but failed to make it to any of the Billboard charts. The following year, a second single, "Quo Funk", was released, which heavily sampled The Jacksons' "This Place Hotel", but it only made it to #2 on the Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles. After "Quo Funk", the duo disbanded, with Robson becoming a successful choreographer, producer, and actor; Turrentine became a fashion model and married actress Reagan Gomez-Preston on November 10, 1999 and has two children with Gomez-Preston, a daughter named Scarlett Annette Turrentine (born May 13, 2007) and son named Tyger Attila Turrentine (born April 2, 2011).
