Schoolboy Q wants to make one thing clear: “I’m not a weed rapper,” he told VIBE while in New York City, but weed isn’t exactly foreign territory to Q, either. The “Bet I Got Some Weed” rapper has been catching a lot of traction lately in the hip-hop sphere for his smooth flow, suggestive lyrics, and the “I don’t give a fuck” persona.
While hip-hop has only been in his diet since he started rapping at 21, the Cali native has been practicing and refining the art of puffing and passing for quite some time. In honor of 4/20, the stoner’s holiday, VIBE sat down with the West Coast rapper to talk about the lows, the highs, and the very highs of his experiences. —Tanya Chen
