ScHoolboy Q was apparently detained after a shooting took place in the parking lot of Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheater yesterday (June 19) outside of a Nas, ScHoolboy Q and Flying Lotus concert. Three people were reportedly wounded in the shooting.

The TDE rapper provided an update on his status today.

ABC's James Dougherty also posted an image of Q, saying the image was of "the man detained.”

    Denver has some wannabe's and some real gangs just like any other big city. Obviously nothing as crazy as LA, Chicago, Detroit, etc. But there's gangs and what not. People think Colorado is just ski resorts, rich white people, mountains, and weed.......yet we have a huge Latino community, and sizable black communities in Northeast Denver. Everyone wants to talk about QUIK dissing Denver or whatever. But no one talks about him getting his ass beat in Denver, and having to come back to Denver county to testify about it.

    LOL what a fraud. Q got so scared he crashed his car and got shot.

    You have some real hogs in Colorado and some suckas in Colorado just like anywhere else man. Cats act like LA don't have any punks that do dumb shit!! This shit happened in Morrison, not Denver by the way. And people act like that DJ Quik reference over 20 years ago tells the whole story about our city...It doesn't!! He got his ass whooped out here and came back to testify in court about it, but no one EVER mentions that part do they??? This was some senseless bullshit no matter how you slice it. I just hope everyone is alright.

      some citites(most if not all actually)extort rappers for money or songs when they come through so that the rapper doesn't get any sort of problems. Q probably said fuck them niggas and that's what happened.

    These gangster rap negroes keep putting their lives and everybody else's life in danger with this negative bullshit. If Q doesn't change his lifestyle then he deserves to die..

    • Rockaye

      Your obviously ignorant dude. I went to school with fella's like these. Their bullies and their parasites. They only care about rapping and robbing innocent people. Imagine going to a school where even the principal is scared to talk to these guys. They rob,beat and kill hard working and good people and they have absolutely no remorse about it after.

    • Anonymous

      Cool opinion, who else deserves to die according to to anonymous internet judge of all men?


    There's gangs in every big city. Yes Denver too. Denver has a big Latino community, and a sizeable black community in the Northeast part of the city. Just ask Chauncey Billups about where he grew up. Not saying the hood in Denver is Detroit or Compton, but there's bad hoods in every city. Just watch that gangland about the North Side Mafia. Remember Darrent Williams or whatever, the Bronco football player???? Brandon Marshall pissed off these guys at a club in Denver.....happened to be members of the Tre Tre Crips, a Northeast Denver street gang. Well they shot up his Limo or whatever after he left, and that's how that guy died. People think all Colorado has is mountains, ski resorts, rich white people, and weed. Lol. They have one of the largest Latin communities in the country, and the god damn state name is Spanish. Check out these articles if you think Denver or Colorado has no gang problems.... Gallant Knights Insane are recognized by the damn FBI lol

    Them Nazi's masquerading as the police in Denver probably shot at Q and crew so they'd have a reason to tell those white fans they cant have no more Hip Hop out there. These police be taking orders to do lil snake shit and then claim they couldnt or didnt catch nobody. A rifle? really? probably one of their shooters...

      lol great conspiracy theory bro. or maybe a black guy in colorado really had a rifle and shot 3 niggas in an SUV after a rap concert. LOL use your brain.

    This was a since-less act. It would be understandable if Denver or Colorado had gang members that made since. You have crips living next-door to bloods. You have gang members that have a mom, and dad at home or know where their mom, and dad are. You don't have a lot of parents in the hood on dope, in jail, or dead. Colorado has never had real gang members. We have people that come from a good homes that just want to be bad for some reason and think they are bad till the real gang member in Colorado come out. Then when they go to jail they start to telling on everyone. DPD, APD, CCPD, JCPD, BPD. They don't play. I know this because I was in the streets growing up in Denver looking for the Boss, hustling and putting people on. It wasn't a crip or a blood either. People sometimes do stupid things for no flipping reason. I can tell you this it wasn't a hood N**** because the ones that have guns are not using a rifle. Not a hood gun, and what the real few gang members do have would not be considered a rifle. yes I said a few like 10, 15 at the most thats in Denver. The others are wanna be just like DJ Quick said. Denver wanna be like Compton.


      You do know that AK's and AR's are rifles right? I'm sure homeboy didn't have a bolt action hunting rifle...Dumbass nigga

      Yeah I'm sure everyone in the state of Colorado has a good home. No one in Colorado has ever struggled ever. They just want to pretend to be poor and oppressed like those losers in LA.
