ScHoolboy Q claims he loves his current record label, but wishes he never joined.
Sounds like the rapper is home sick — missing being a Top Dawg Entertainment full-time artist.
“I already did wrong by signing a rap contract,” he said. “I’m not talking about TDE, but how we ventured off with the majors,” he said.
He continued with:
“I wish we would have still stayed indie, I don’t care about being on like 1,000 radios. I love Interscope, but I wish I could have just stayed with TDE.”
Just like his TBE label mate Kendrick Lamar, he signed with Interscope as well — releasing an album, “Oxymoron” – debuting at number one and co-released with TDE.
But ScHoolboy has a valid point about being a sort-after entertainer and businessman.
“Everybody wants me to do a line,” he said laughing. “There’s so many bucket hat companies offering me so much money, but I’d rather do it myself. If you wanted to give me that much money, I know I could make that much money on my own.”
As for fans wanting a mixtape, forget about it.
“We don’t do mixtapes, we don’t put mixtapes out,” he explained. “Everything we drop is an album– we don’t play that mixtape game. We put all our time and effort into one project, to make it great instead of doing songs for a tape.”
If anything’s for sure Q loves his craft, but he’s particular on how it’s done — demanding control.
