ScHoolboy Q on Rap: "So Much Wack Sh*t out There. No Content, No Nothing. And Then It Makes the Listener Lazy"

Q has a lot to chest off his chest.

The media blitz for ScHoolboy Q‘s latest studio album Blank Face LP continues. Following several memorable, significant appearances on various programs from across the spectrum of communication, Q stopped by the The Breakfast Club for an insightful, straightforward interview. Sitting alongside Charlemagne, Envy and Angela Yee, Q spoke on his record’s controversial Miguel/Justice Skye collab, the death of the bucket hat, his misunderstood “All Lives Matter” remarks, and his thoughts on the state of rap and its modern artists. Breaking it down, Q says:

“I just see what everyone’s doing. Everybody’s trying to make older music. ‘Oh, I’m tryna sound like this dude. I’m tryna sound like that dude.’ They’re doing the same thing. Autotune, eh. Don’t get me wrong, there are people that’s dope. But It’s so much wack shit out there. No content, no nothing. And then it makes the listener lazy. Like everywhere you go nowadays, everybody asks you, ‘So what’s your album mean?” before it even drops. Everybody’s been asking me what Blank Face means, I’m like, ‘It’s only been out a week, you figure it out first. Listen to it’ I think that’s why music is so much like fast food. You know everything about this album before you even hear it.”
