'Quo was a short-lived rap group composed of Wade Robson (born 1982) and DeWayne Turrentine jr (born 1981). They were the first act signed to Michael Jackson's Epic Records subsidiary, MJJ Music.

The duo formed in 1993. In 1994 Quo released their single "Huh What" Produced by RED MAN, followed by their second single, "Blowin' Up (Don't Stop the Music produced by Teddy Riley)", which became a 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. The following year, a third single, "Quo Funk," was released, which heavily sampled The Jacksons' "This Place Hotel, "produced by Battlecat. Quo Funk Charted #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 successful international super model, producer, and actor. Turrentine married actress Reagan Gomez with whom he two children, a daughter named Scarlett Annette Turrentine (born May 14, 2007,) and son named Tyger Attila Turrentine (born April 2, 2011).
