Radio personality and actor, QDeezy Harris has a lot on his plate lately, juggling his Philadelphia radio show and promoting his new film, Exit Strategy. He took the time to answer a few questions we had for him about his upcoming projects and his rap battle with Trey Songz.
Starpulse: Tell me about this film Exit Strategy.
QDeezy: It's an un- romantic comedy about a guy who is trying to escape a relationship from hell.
Starpulse: What attracted you to play this role?
QDeezy: The writer and star of the film, Jameel Saleem, asked me to play the role. Reading the character of Carville seemed like fun so I gave it the ole college try.
Starpulse: Do you have a personal exit strategy story?
QDeezy: Yes, in all of my breakups I've been the one who has been the one to end it. So my advice is break up with someone before they break up with you, LOL . It's all about beating the other person to the punch. Always works for me.
Starpulse: You’re pretty hilarious, do you do stand up at all?

Starpulse: From the few pictures I have seen, you have a cool style - do you have any fashion tips?
QDeezy: Thank you again, I try to be as simple as possible, not too many logos.
Starpulse: You connect with your fans through Twitter and Facebook, right? How has social media helped your career?
