Quron Payne was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, but it was not until he was stationed in North Carolina, courtesy of The United States Marine Corps, where he would begin making music regularly. While enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, Quron released his first single “Never Want to See You Cry.” The visual was captured by Payne Lindsey, a director who has worked with acts such as, Young Jeezy, B.O.B, August Alsina, Rich Homie Quan, and Lloyd.
In March of 2015, Quron released his debut EP, Brief Intermission; it caught fire. The EP received so much coverage, it powered The Brief Intermission Tour, which took Quron to cities like NYC, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis, Madison, Detroit, Cleveland, to name a few. The Tour’s buzz landed Quron a spot opening up for DefJam’s Big Sean on his Dark Sky Paradise Tour. All these happenings would give Quron the credibility, and exposure, needed for him to be respected as a recording artist.
Following the road to success, Quron started working with director FrankU, who has directed for Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalia, Chevy Woods, and more. This link-up produced two epic visuals for Quron, and allowed him to tap into Pittsburgh’s rich music scene. With the visual for his song titled FAME, Quron earned a spot in The Source Magazine, and on the radar of HOT97’s DJ Enuff's table. The Source Magazine being impressed with the lyrical raps and intriguing video wrote a positive review on the young star.

In October of the same year, Quron rocked A3C Atlanta's Music Festival and performed alongside artists such as: Lil Durk, Ca$h Out, Cyhi The Prynce, DC Young Fly and more. Quron then got off the road and began working on new material while linking with brands such as: Nike, Sprite, Create karma, Woodie Specs, KEYS, and Original Grain.
In October of 2016, Quron would release a single tiled No, telling a story of moving too fast and battling depression after taking a financial lost. In January of 2017, Quron would again take the stage, but this time alongside Rich Gang's/Cash Money Artist Jacquees to perform in front of a sold-out crowd in Washington D.C. In late summer 2017, Quron Payne dropped off smash single Party and Kick it, which has accumulated millions of streams and has landed on FM radio’s Top 40.

Keeping the scene hot, in early March of the same year Quron would go on to perform at the "Treble and Bass" Music Festival in North Carolina for CIAA Weekend, performing at five different stages in just three days.
