ScHoolboy Q Addresses Kendrick Lamar & Macklemore's Grammy Text Conversation

ScHoolboy Q says he's "one of the best fathers in the world" and that the only other rapper going as in depth in rhymes as him is YG.

After this year's Grammy Awards ceremony, Macklemore sent Kendrick Lamar a text message saying he felt he robbed him of a Grammmy win. "You got robbed," Macklemore said at the time. "I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you." Mack then posted a screenshot of this message on Instagram. 

ScHoolboy Q, who has worked with both artists, recently addressed the Grammy text message conversation. "All these rappers talking shit about Macklemore because of the text, but they wouldn’t be saying that shit if I sent the text out," Q says in The Source. "Or if Maino sent the text out. Bruh, if Maino sent the text out and put it on Instagram, niggas would be quiet. They wouldn’t say nothing." 

Several people have criticized Macklemore for the release of this text message. One of the most prominent figures to criticize Macklemore for the text message was Drake, who addressed this during a Rolling Stone interview earlier this year

"I was like, 'You won. Why are you posting your text message? Just chill. Take your W, and if you feel you didn't deserve it, go get better. Make better music,'" Drake said at the time. "It felt cheap. It didn't feel genuine. Why do that? Why feel guilt? You think those guys would pay homage to you if they won?"

ScHoolboy Q's commentary regarding the text message isn't the only focus of his The Source cover story. In the piece, Q also addresses the drug abuse he details on "Prescription / Oxymoron," a cut off the album Oxymoron.

“Every bit of it is real," Q says of the track. "So real I never listened to it. Never heard it. I mean, I made it [laughs], but that was it. I perform it every night, but I never listen to it because it’s too much. A part of me, like, kicks myself in the ass ‘cause my daughter was there. But a part of it makes me proud because I’m not that type of person no more. I’m, like, one of the best fathers in the world, you get what I’m saying?

"I’m not scared to put my real life in there like a lot of rappers," he adds. "Five, six albums in and you still don’t know nothing about their life. You just know they rap good. They crack, but you still don’t know, like, who is this nigga grandma, who’s his uncle, what block he come from. How much was the sodas when he was a kid, you know what I’m saying? Niggas don’t put that type of shit in their music. Everybody’s a mobster now. They got the Vaseline, they got the dope, they got the burner, like who you got the burner from though? How many shots were in the burner? When the cops came what did you do with the burner, you get what I’m saying? What’s your momma name? What’s your homie name, where’s the park that you caught a fade at? Nobody’s going in depth with it like me. Only other nigga doing it like that is YG."

Yesterday (April 8), Q criticized the post-processing of his cover photo for The Source

    If you're considered a deep rapper then it's a sad day in Hip Hop...If the only other deep rapper in your left field opinion is YG...Hip Hop is truly dead. It's bad enough your album was eeeeeh....Now you got nerve to say you don't even listen to tracks you record or perform, dude who you fooling? For all the weed I've smoked I never understood how drugs fucked people up to the point of saying completely off the cuff ignorance. My mamma name, soda cans, how many bullets was in the gun? Come on man, it's bad enough you're getting all this love for being as dumpster fire trash as your are, but you're reaching a whole new level of stupid with this shit.

    This is what Hip-Hop has turned into a bunch of white kids crying about a comment yet people defending bitch ass drake when his comment isn't relevant. Kendricks last album was dope thought he would of got more love for not selling out but if you were after the age of 90s guess you wouldn't know, I smell ignorance.

    no ones going into depth with their rhymes??? the fuck are you talking about? tons of rappers do they just get no credibility because people who listen to this kinda of music are to stupid to understand rhymes when they get to intricate. just cause you go into depth doesnt mean your actually saying something, it also means you got nothing to say so you gotta fill it with irrelevant facts the dont even back up the main purpose of the song.

    Schoolboy Q should shut up already. The guy speaks like he is a bad ass gangsta and even if he was the guy looks soft. He should try to release more than one album before he starts talking trash.

      he's released 3 albums, maybe you should do some research before you talk trash
