Despite receiving universal critical praise from his fans and peers alike, not everyone was happy for the success of Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. Now, in a joint interview between 2DopeBoyz and The Well Versed, K. Dot’s TDE partner ScHoolboy Q responds to the album’s biggest detractor Shyne.
Q had some choice words for the former Bad Boy rapper, calling him “weak” and saying that he’s trying to drive up publicity by disparaging Kendrick’s LP. At the end of the day, however, Q says he doesn’t care whether Shyne Po likes K. Dot’s album or not; what’s important is that the fans are responding postively.
“Kendrick sells a bunch of records and has corny niggas like Shyne hating on him,” he said. “I’ma keep it real: that nigga [Shyne] is weak. I just keep it real, he’s weak and nobody cares. He can’t come back. Good for him, become Jewish, do what you’re gonna do. Shit, I don’t know, I don’t care man. My nigga is moving units…he can feel like it’s trash if he wants to, but my homie is moving units. What’s his homie doing? What’s he doing? I could care less, really. Honestly, I don’t even want to talk about it. Shame on that nigga.”
ScHoolboy Q also spoke on a recent incident between him and fellow Cali emcee Blu, who confronted him on Twitter over a perceived diss in the song “Gangsta in Designer (No Concept).” He explained that he didn’t diss Blu at all, and believes it was another instance of a rapper attempting to generate controversy over a non-issue.
“I don’t care about Blu like that, he just jumped into some weird shit, like how is he gonna hit me on Twitter and ask a nigga about a diss record and say the wrong lyric?” he said. “I don’t know, I guess he ain’t eating. I have a show every night. I ain’t trippin’. I’m praying that I get December off, I’m not worried about niggas like him trying to get some attention but nobody cares…I would never do a record with him.”
