DJ GQ was born Gary Hardie on August 10, 1978, in Miami, Florida. After moving to Jamaica in his childhood, DJ GQ began spinning in Jamaican clubs and became a sponsored dj by the age of 14. At that time, his sponsorships included companies such as Pepsi and Appleton Rum. Currently residing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, DJ GQ has become a mainstay of the Fort Lauderdale and Miami club scene. He is widely credited with being the pioneer of reggae/hip-hop blends and, as of 2007, has distributed over 300,000 mixtapes worldwide. In recent years, these mixtapes have been entitled "Let 'Em Know" and numbered sequentially. The origin of this name is a sound bite that he has continued to use in which rap artist DMX (rapper) yells "GQ...let 'em know!" This sound bite has become somewhat of a signature for DJ GQ. Of note, his cd "Let 'Em Know 17", which was hosted by Birdman, received wide acclaim, including a positive review in USA Today  and "Let 'Em Know 18" hosted by Styles P was positively reviewed in Source Magazine. DJ GQ's "Let Em Know Part 19" was hosted by Miami Rapper Pitbull (rapper), and Part 20 is currently in the works, and is said to be hosted by hip-hop legend DMX. In 2008 DJ GQ will release "Let Em Know; Da Album", with the first single being a track entitled "Bad Boys", featuring DMX, Junior Reid and Dawg E. Slaughter.
