ScHoolboy Q Explains Recording With 2 Chainz
ScHoolboy Q disagrees with those who say 2 Chainz isn't "real Hip Hop."
Among the artists featured on ScHoolboy Q's upcoming album Oxymoron is 2 Chainz, a subject he recently broached in an interview with on Power 106's "Big Boy's Neighborhood." “I like 2 Chainz,” Q said. “People been hitting me and asking me, like tweets… like, ‘Oh, why are you messing with 2 Chainz? This is TDE. That’s not real Hip Hop.’ What do you mean that’s not real Hip Hop? When I go buy the album, it says Rap and Hip Hop. I listen to it, I like it. If you don’t like it, skip his verse. I like 2 Chainz. I think he real.”
ScHoolboy Q opined that fans online believe that they know how to run an artist's career better than the artists. “A fan thinks he knows more than you! Like ‘Q, you need to go back to the old Q! The Q that didn’t get a deal, the Q that didn’t go on tour! Q, you shouldn’t hang with 2 Chainz because he’s this, that, he older than you, he from …’ Like, what the hell are you talking about?”
Ultimately, however, Q has limited his activity online recently. “Honestly, I’m not really on it like that no more like I used to be. …I go too hard and not realize that this is the virtual world. Anything you say will be held against you, and it will be on that website tomorrow, and you gonna be feeling like a dickhead.”
