ScHoolboy Q Defends Diddy's Business Practices

ScHoolboy Q also says Kendrick Lamar brought the West Coast back.

ScHoolboy Q has spoken at great length in the past about his friendship with Hip Hop mogul Diddy, revealing that Q even goes by Diddy's former moniker "Puffy" now.

In a recent interview with Hip Hop Nation, Q explained his friendship with Diddy. "He's one of the richest dudes in Hip Hop," Q said. "He always look happy, even when he's mad or something. He just got that glow about him, you know? ...Diddy is that dude. Why wouldn't you want to be called...'Puffy?'"

Diddy's business practices, which has left his relationships with artists such as The LOX and others fractured, were also addressed. "You can't be mad at Puff," ScHoolboy Q said. "He did it his way. ...He ain't force nobody to sign with him. You signed over there. He's just a businessman. Don't be mad at him."

ScHoolboy Q also spoke about Kendrick Lamar's good kid, m.A.A.d city putting the West Coast back on the map. "Everything just come full circle. South ran it. East Coast ran it. Midwest. West Coast. It's just our turn again. We got the glow right now. We got the glow right now, and Kendrick, he led it off...for the Coast. We have a lot of albums drop on the Coast since then, but Kendrick was kinda the stamp of the Coast. Like, we back bruh. You need that person to be spittin' bars, to sell some records to be able to step into the front like, 'Yeah, we here.'"

The TDE member acknowledged that Kendrick's release forced him to deliver a classic album in his upcoming Oxymoron. "In my mind [it's a classic]. Of course y'all have to say it's a classic album. You know, me saying it's classic doesn't really count. He [left] me no choice but to make one. [good kid, m.A.A.d city] was incredible. For him to be that bold to even make an album like that, that was a bold album to make."

    Puffy got some of that booty and Q stanning for him now. Remember when Q said Puffy called him outta the blue and didn't have his number. Puffy wanna piece of him and initiate him. So now Q crossed a line he can't ever return.

    This is from a 'genius' that told THE BREAKFAST CLUB he NEVER READ his contract he signed with TDE?!@! WHAT does he know about a 'good deal' & WHY Sean 'Puffy P.Diddy' Combs has NEVER had one of his artists talk well about him?! Shyne, Mase, Lox, Black Rob, Craig Mack, ................ WTF?!

    "You can't be mad at Puff," ScHoolboy Q said. "He did it his way. ...He ain't force nobody to sign with him. You signed over there. He's just a businessman. Don't be mad at him" In that case, Jerry Heller and Suge Knight should be treated the same as Puff?

    Its not a coincidence that just about every artist that signed with Diddy ended up dead, in jail or broke and unable to release music.

    Props to Schoolboy Q for not putting 50 Cent on his album, he told Angke Martinez that the Curtis song didnt make the cut.

    • Anonymous

      he said it didnt fit but he wishes he could have put 50 and e-40 on there.

      Schoolboy Q told Angie Martinez that the 50Cent song just wasnt good enough to be on his CD.

      nah it'll probably be one of da target bonus you don't get on Itunes. I don't get why artist ever do that, seems like it would stall album sales and make it more frustating if there are different versions of the album and would lead to more people just downloading it.
