ScHoolboy Q Says SXSW Is "Stupid" & "Corporate"

ScHoolboy Q says he never wants to go back to SXSW "unless they change it."

While preparing to go on stage at this year's South By South West (SXSW), ScHoolboy Q expressed some of his dissatisfaction with the annual events held in Austin, Texas. 

“It’s stupid," ScHoolboy Q says regarding SXSW in an Associated Press article, as per Washington Post. "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. 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 [and] who can give you the best look.”

ScHoolboy Q's friend and collaborator, Danny Brown, also criticized SXSW recently

“The best thing for me was, I remember coming out here years, years, years ago, before it was like all the major label guys and all the guys were coming out here,” Brown said recently. “It was pretty much an up-and-coming artists—it was really more so about bands at that time. It wasn’t even that much Rap going on. In those days, it was just more about you got put up on something. More so than now when people coming here they just going to see the Kanye show or they going to see—now you don’t really get put up on nothing. It kind of lost a little something with that. My thing is, when I come out here, I try to go see all the people that I don’t know.”
