ScHoolboy Q Says "I Rap Better Than" The Other Members Of Black Hippy

ScHoolboy Q feels TDE is the best rap crew out, says fans can expect "groovy Q" on "Oxymoron."

Moments after sharing his belief that TDE is the best rap crew out during an interview with Torae of Hip Hop Nation, Los Angeles emcee ScHoolboy Q was then asked who the best rapper in Black Hippy is. He responded by stating that he’s the best rapper in the Los Angeles-based crew and went on to rattle down a list of reasons as to why he holds that title.

“Me,” Q said when asked who the best rapper in Black Hippy is. “Cause I am. I smoke weed. The most girls like me. I dress nicer than them. I rap better than them. You can listen to me by yo self. You can listen to me with the homies. You can play certain songs for your mama. You can play me in the strip club. I’m everywhere. I’m better than them niggas.”

ScHoolboy Q’s interview with Torae comes weeks before the scheduled February 25 release of his album, Oxymoron. With the LP set for release in the near future, Q was asked what fans can expect from the project. According to the rapper, Oxymoron will boast a “groovy Q” sound and will include a guest appearance from Wu-Tang Clan spitter Raekwon.

“Groovy Q. Shit, that’s all I can give them. Some gangsta shit,” he said. “Someone that’s doing bad for a good cause. Features? I got Raekwon on there. You know what I mean? I got my nigga on there. I don’t wanna give too much up because the tracklist ain’t out. And it’s gonna spoil it…We TDE, man. We kicked the door in and we do what the fuck we want. We tell iTunes when we gon’ put something out.”

During an interview with Life+Times last year, Q offered a brief description of Oxymoron, informing viewers that the “album is about me taking care of my daughter and Crip history from 1969 to present."

Shortly following the release of Oxymoron later this month, ScHoolboy Q is scheduled to embark on a three-month tour. The tour will begin on March 1 in Providence, Rhode Island and will conclude in Manchester, England on June 1.

    Of course he is going to say that and he should...don't buy into this lame attempt at journalism.

  • In other news.........

    A clown with average lyrical skills says hes great. Now that's hilarious. "Im the best because i am" is really all hes got to say.

    Q is soo average its funny

  • Anonymous

    ha... none of these busters can even rap that great. there are very very few new school rappers/emcees that impress me with their lyrical abilities. these guys are no exception.

  • RC

    It would be cool if we could get a studio album from Black Hippy, they could seriously be like the next A Tribe Called Quest. Unfortunately though as time has shown in the competitive world of Hip-Hop & young men trying to make a name for themselves egos can quickly become inflated & animosity can build, especially in these cases when one member inevitably outshines the rest. Still Oxymoron will probably be one of the top 5 releases of the year, hopefully these guys avoid the pitfalls that befell other groups.

    He's supposed to believe that.

    He's joking right...he's average rapper at best.

    uptil I saw the check which had said $5551 , I didn't believe neighbour woz like trully bringing in money in their spare time from their laptop. . there mums best friend started doing this for under ten months and by now repaid the loans on there appartment and got a great Fiat Multipla . see here now... At this point I'd rather hear him talk about his money and cars like every other rapper.

    This guy is funny!! I do think it's sarcasm, but sometimes people can say what they believe so bluntly that we think its a joke as well. Still I do think that animosity will eventually come. It's happens to most collectives. When his album flops(doesn't sell as expected), then we'll see how he really feels.

  • Anon

    Amazed at how many idiots on here don't understand sarcasm, or the fact that he is kidding when he says hes better than all of them. You are all the reason the things you hate exists. You are everything you hate.

    really ... Who cares about TDE? we have grandiose and talneted new school rappers like Drake and Fredo Santana. at least trap rappers have lyrics and skills. These backpack rappers have totally nursery rhymes... swag

    Manchester June 1st im there!!!!!!!!!!!! cannot wait for album to drop first tho

  • Black De La Rocha

    Q is probably the least lyrical member of TDE. He makes good music, but I'd take Kendrick & Soul over him 98% of the time. I'm not sure who's music I'd rathe hear between him and Jay Rock, but Rock is the better rapper.

  • tooILL

    Q is hilarious!!! He is def a talent and better when it comes to versatility. Ya'll hating at the wrong artist. Hate on 2 chaniz and chief keef

  • Anonymus

    Ya'll shoulda figured out he was joking the minute he said he's best because he dress the best.

  • Anonymous

    Sometimes after watching an interview of a artist, it makes you wanna go check songs of that artist. Just because of their character. This guy is so f'n arrogant, it makes me sick. And to think that he's not even as good as he says/thinks he is. He's always talking big shit... dude is a youngster in the game!!!Never will check a song of his.

      o catching feelings nigga ^ stop crying. he just being confident and cocky. everyone know they got love for eachother. thats what buck, banks, and yayo shud have been saying. Same goes with everybody in the rocafella records when they were hot. same shit wale, meek mill should b saying. u gotta put ya self out there or no one will pay attention. Thats y ab soul checked everybody with the magazine title"Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy" if he didnt they would easily fade to black in a year or 2. Cuz the only niggas that make it are the leader of the groups. u have to fight your way up to that spotlight. so far Q is on his way.

    • Mr. Ceeeee

      ScHoolboy shoudl be like, showing love for his homies. Not trying to be dissing them on the sly just cause his album be coming out. Valentine's Day is next week, yo. You gots to show out for your homies, give them a gansta ass hug, and a straight mafia kiss on the lips!

  • Mr. Ceeeee

    You know who's better than any Black Hippy? Macklemore & Lewis! Check the Grammy scoreboard!

      You know who is better than that mediocre "artist"? Anybody from the midwest. I mean, Krizz Kaliko can destroy them with a single verse and hook. And he dont need a damn grammy nomination to prove it. Get your whack-rap-lovin ass outta here...

    The fact this nigga has to keep telling everyone he's the best, his album will be better than Kendric's, etc is making him look mad lame. Dog, just make some dope shit be who you are and let everything be everything. If you got the personality of a door knob, than thats just what it it is. What you gonna do?

    This isn't news Q always talks shit

  • BP

    this doesn't mean anything. even if Schoolboy was serious, he'd be doing the exact same thing Kendrick is doing. Kendrick went after his friends too nigga! most of the emcees Kendrick namedropped on Control, he's cool with em! even niggas who was cool with Kendrick responded with freestyles. the competitive spirit has to keep being shoehorned into hip-hop to make everyone bring out their best. schoolboy just doesn't feel like playin second fiddle, and that's totally cool. i expect somethin good out of oxymoron now.

    "Forgive Me For My Sins" depicts the destitute streets of the inner city of Chicago as it promotes most people to a life of sin in an attempt to survive.

    Hip hop DX loves to stir up drama (frankly, that's all this websites for), but les be honest: unlike the legacy rap that most posse tracks are now, Kendrick, Q, Ab Soul, and Jay Rock are a competitive bunch. And it's fun competition, amping eachother up and making eachother better. Q trash talking is a part of this.

    • Anonymous

      No, you guys take your own articles out of context to get reading. And I just assume this isn't actually anyone important from DX, otherwise you would have a laundry list of comments to respond to before responding to my own.

    • DX

      It's not like we were inciting a war against his homies or anything. Geez, you readers take EVERYTHING OUT OF CONTEXT. WE KNOW THAT HE'S NOT SERIOUS; you can tell by the tone in Q's voice that he's obviously joking and that it's just promotion for his upcoming album. Stop making us the scapegoat all the damn time.

    • DX Staff

      We're sick & tired of people like you pointing fingers at us every time we post an article. Exactly how are we starting drama? School Boy Q was expressing his opinion (which we realize he was probably joking). That's all we did.

  • Remember Gator Crunch chips?

    Yes people! Q is OBVIOUSLY joking! LOL at you kendrick STANS! K DOt is my fav rapper at the moment, but chill!

    Do people not get that Q is just joking around? obviously HHDX doesn't...

    dude is the worst in black hippy lol, I love his music though

  • Jack

    Y'all don't get it do you? He is only saying this so he can get a bit of hype before his album drops, everyone knows and even q knows he can't touch Jay Rock, Soul and Kendrick when it comes to rapping. He just wants people to talk about him more and with the album coming at the end of the month he wants SALES! Plus we all know Kendrick is getting recognition so him saying them will make people want to listen to his album to see if he is the better rapper out of his peers.

    lmao, so because he smokes weed, dresses better, and girls find him the most attractive, that makes him the best rapper? Even if all 3 of those were true that has nothing to do with rapping.

  • ProbablyNotComingBackToThisSite

    HiphopDX labels their stories like attention hungary whores. Obviously, homie was joking, now they're gonna ask him about this garbage ass headline where they make it seem like hes shit talking. The popular media sucks and i have noticed HHDX wants to be a part of it in the past year or so. And yes, i can't forget the TMZ esque headlines of "Shia Labeauf steals Gucci Mane's apology. Way to improperly label jokes and try to make stories out of them. I used to like this site man. Yall are trippin
