Arnold Torres, best kown as Young Quicks
was born and raised in Oxnard, California. His parents taught him that perseverance
is the key to success, and that! is what has brought Young Quicks to the top.
Even though no one really knows where all his talent emerged since he is
the only one dedicated to arts in his family, there is no doubt in the mind of
who listens to him that he is very gifted.
At a very young age (13) he started writing poetry but it was not until he
was starting high school that he realized his love for music. Noticing that poetry was not
fulfilling his desires, Young Quicks began to compose songs to entertain others by
telling his own stories about the struggle and life. At the beginning he promoted
himself, and sold homemade CD’s of his music to friends, and classmates.
He had such an amazing acceptance, that they started spreading the word and
before he realized it he was performing at high schools, opening major concerts
for artists such as Dj Quik, Bonethugsnharmony, David Banner, Nelly, Lil Rob, and more
to even headlining his own club events.
The sincerity of Quick’s lyrics, and the poetical
content combined with a rapping style have made Young Quicks the sensation of
everyone who listens to his songs. He uses words that are uncommonly employed
in a rap, and shares his stories giving it a motivational content.
During the presentations Quicks gives all his energy out and transmit it to
his fans, making his shows unique and energetic. Most of the time Young Quicks
was an independent musician, even though offers with record labels did occur.
It was not until 2008, when Down aka Kilo "Mr. Lean Like a Cholo"asked Quicks
to join him, when Young Quicks accepted to sign with a record label.
After a lot of hard work and various presentations Quicks decided to be independent again
and incorporate his own corporation called "Street Talent Ent. LLC" , and on April 2009
he released his first street album titled" Stop Jock’n My Swag" and even made a appearance
in Gordo y La Flaca out in miami. In early 2010 he released "I Am Steet Talent Vol.1." Being
mentored by outstanding artists such as Terminal (Locura Terminal), Down Aka Kilo,
Big Tank and Damizza,Quicks learned the most important tips to grow more as a rapper.
His music has been playedn his hometown radio station Q104.7, most recently "I Can" on
wild102.9 (Reno, NV), Power94 in (Bend, Or) The Latin Legacy Show(Pocos Pero Locos)
and some stations overseas, the approval of the people has been astonishing.
Because of all his popularity Quicks was called to be the image of Globafon a worldwide

evident that the future has great things waiting for him.
