One Reddit user wrote, “I wouldn’t call this clout chasing, the dudes just making a joke. If anything he’s being self-aware and playing on the fact that he’s not big enough to headline.” Well, believe it or not, there is some substance in Quinn’s tweet.
Quinn currently has 285k followers on Instagram and seems like the number is increasing. He revealed that Ye is his biggest inspiration. Look at him now as he may take his place at the famed Coachella Festival.
It appears that success is not far for the not-so-famous artist. Coachella hasn’t released any official statement regarding Quinn. However, it appears that Quinn had some backstage conversation with the committee. What do you think?
