ScHoolboy Q Says SXSW Has Gone Corporate: ‘I Don’t Ever Want To Come Back’
ScHoolboy Q is riding high off the success of his debut album Oxymoron as he tours North America in support of the critically acclaimed project. However, one stop in particular left the Cali native feeling a little bit bothered.
During his set at Spin Magazine’s “Spin Day” SXSW showcase (Mar. 14), the “Break The Bank” rapper said in an interview with the Associated Press that the annual festival affectionately known for introducing new artists has gone corporate.
“It’s stupid. They changed it all up. It’s corporate. I don’t ever want to come back unless they change it to where the fans are in,” he said. “I’m tired of performing and seeing my fans outside the gate…. That’s not fair. It’s not about the fans no more, it’s all about money, who can give you the best look.”
The next stop on the TDE affiliate’s tour is March 18 in Orlando, Fla. at the Firestone Live stadium.
