It’s been quiet for rapper Schoolboy Q as he prepares for the release of his upcoming album, Oxymoron. But the Top Dawg Entertainment member chopped it up with Fuse in a recent interview unveiling some of the pressures of following up Kendrick Lamar’s acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d city.
“The only pressure I got is making sure my album is better or as good as Kendrick’s,” he shared. Q also went on to compliment Lamar’s efforts and saying he “damn near dropped a tear” when good kid was released because of how proud he is of K Dot’s rise.
Q mentions having the same production team behind him. Signed to Interscope records since 2011, Schoolboy Q mentions working with big name producers like Pharrell and David Banner.
“I’m actually done,” Schoolboy says of his album’s status. “Nigga, we gon’ sell drugs. Nigga, we gon’ take drugs. We gon’ take care of our kids… I never told nobody that about this album because I wanted people to listen to it and see what they get from it. But that’s what the album is about. Stop worrying about other people and worry about yourself.” —Megan Guard
