According to the Los Angeles rapper, his first time being romantic was ultimately his last. While speaking with Noisey, Q shared the story of how a romantic gesture for the mother of his daughter ended with a blanket accidentally being set on fire.
After sharing his story, ScHoolboy then offered his thoughts on romance as he informed those watching that “romance does not exit.”
“First time I was romantic towards a girl was my daughter mom,” ScHoolboy Q said. “Well, I lit some candles. Next thing I know the blanket was on fire and I ain’t never been romantic again. The blanket was on fire. I’m running around…No, romance does not exist. I don’t even know what that is. That’s like another word for love or something?”
Q’s conversation on romance ended with a nod to the James Cameron-directed film Titanic, the rapper’s personal pick for favorite romance.
“My favorite romance in movies? Titanic,” he said. “She held on [to] my dude hand until he turned to an iceberg. Then she let him go.”
ScHoolboy Q’s interview with Noisey comes weeks after the TDE emcee released his major label debut, Oxymoron. Released on February 25, the album sold approximately 150,000 copies in its first week.
Shortly following the release of Oxymoron, Q embarked on his Oxymoron World Tour. The tour began this month and is scheduled to make stops in both the United States and Europe.
