ScHoolboy Q says that he was not pleased with the cover of XXL’s October/November issue. A photo of Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock includes the language “Kendrick Lamar & Black Hippy” on the XXL cover.
According to and interview MTV, Q is quoted as saying, “That’s so disrespectful, so disrespectful. We didn’t go into that shoot saying, ‘This is Kendrick with Black Hippy photo shoot for the cover.’ We went in there and said, ‘This is a Black Hippy shoot,’ so we expect a Black Hippy shoot.”
ScHoolboy Q acknowledges Kendrick Lamar is the most accomplished member of the four.
“At the end of the day and I always say this, too, Kendrick, he’s way ahead of us,” ScHoolboy Q says. “He’s a platinum artist. I haven’t dropped my album yet. [Jay] Rock’s working on his major-label album. Ab-Soul’s working on his major-label album. We still haven’t dropped our major-label albums, so honestly, at the same time, at the end of the day, I mean he is fucking Kendrick Lamar. Even though we’re not signed to Kendrick, but he has that impact.”
Does Q have a point to feel disrespected, or should he just be grateful of him being on a cover and continue his grind? Peep the cover he was speaking on below.
