QUINCY JOSEPH ANTHONY SMITH aka "Q-Banga" was born on September 3, 1986 to Debra Smith and Lorenzo Smith in Linden, Guyana. He departed his earthly life on September 20, 2018.

Quincy immigrated to the United States on July 27, 1987 when he was nine months old. He attended Howe Elementary School, Wagner Middle School and Olney High School. Throughout his life, he had a number of positions remodeling homes, and most recently working as a Home Health Aide.
Quincy and his wife, Karen Vargas were together for many years. Together, they had a son, Quadir (nine years old).
Quincy enjoyed listening to music, playing basketball and video games. When he was not hanging with family and friends, he was glued to the television playing video games. On other occasions, he spent time at his grandmother "Mommy" chilling on her front steps, or hanging out by his late uncle, Keith Cave.
He had a laid back and outgoing personality. What you see is what you got when it came to his personality and style. He was a collector of sneakers and always coordinated his sneakers with his clothing. Recently, he bought blue sneakers which was his favorite color, that he never got to wear.
