Groovy

Two years after his successful breakthrough, ScHoolboy Q has a renewed focus with his short film and album, Blank Face LP. But things weren’t always this clear for the TDE signee. In the midst of raising his 7-year-old daughter and kicking his drug addiction, he contemplated about quitting rap. Following a recent NY performance, Q talks his new project, estranged family, Top Dawg, finances, Kanye West, Stat Quo, Anderson Paak and more. Subscribe on iTunes here.

    b.dot has my dream job. Must be nice

  • The other podcasts are good for nostalgia but RR really brings out what has made these artists successful. “Rap is about yourself.” Q hits the nail on the head on the best way to be original in this copycat era.

    Wyclef spoke on producers moving beyond the computer when making music, understanding the sample or an instrument. For my generation, sampling was a door to learning about all kinds of music and all the possible messages. You see how militant, positive and mind expanding previous generations were and you start to think maybe there is conspiracists dumbing the music down. Or maybe just Greed and stupid marketing execs who make decisions using twitter analytics and listen to the opinions of Oberlin College music writer “critics.”

  • sojournerdrew

    Great interview B. Dot and Russell! Y’all always ahead. ScHoolboy Q! If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be as in love with rap as I am today. Black Hippy makes NWA proud.

  • Great interview. It went by fast as fck. Y’all pretty much got Q to reveal the meaning behind the Album Title.
