Hometown Hero Watts Homie Quan has made a name for himself as he authentically carries his city and passions for creativity, acting, comedy, music, and more all on his shoulders.
Growing up in South Central, Los Angeles, Quan first began to find his passion in comedy and music while attending school, where he discovered his ability to comically impersonate former President Barack Obama. And while Quan first began to gain piece together his venture into the business, when Chris Brown hyped his skills as a dancer, the LA native’s success is a testament to his drive and his hopes to shine a light on the true lifestyle and community of the street culture.
Quan’s series “Growin Up In LA” is a portrayal of every influence he’s been inspired by as well as his experiences growing up in the city. Quan speaks with Power Mornings co-hosts Letty and Teddy about the importance of shedding light on the connections and respect for the Black and Brown communities. Quan shares how the Latino community has not only supported his show but also understands the similarities of culture with the Black community.
Watts goes on to speak on why he pays homage to Pomona legend Suga Free, shares a Nipsey Hussle impersonation, and much more.
