ScHoolboy Q is no expert on the death of Tupac Shakur however, he claims that what happened to him is nothing new. In a recent interview with Montreality, the TDE rapper speaks on a number of topics including the conspiracy theories behind the tragic end of Pac’s life. While he’s always been a big fan, Q says he’s never delved into his death because he feels “people die everyday.”
“Tupac conspiracy theories? Man, shit goes on all the time,” ScHoolboy Q said. “People get away with murder every day. You know what I’m saying? So, that’s what the case is. Somebody else got away with murder. Or they know who did it. Or—I don’t know. I was too young. I never knew Tupac. I was a big fan, but I never delved that deep. I know it’s scandalous.”
The Oxymoron rapper also commented on Childish Gambino’s freestyle in Sydney, Australia where he fired some shots at Q, Drake and Kendrick Lamar where he claims he’s “the best rapper, definitely top 5.” Q wasn’t phased by the freestyle and actually thinks his recent album Because The Internet goes hard.
“I ain’t trippin,” Q said. “That’s cool. I ain’t trippin. I fuck with Gambino. Yeah, a freestyle. He probably didn’t even mean to say that. You know what I’m saying? I ain’t trippin. It’s cool. His album hard.”
ScHoolboy Q took the time to speak about the late Nate Dogg and praised him for his work. Q says that he’s more of a “gangsta singer” rather than a vocalist like Stevie Wonder and R. Kelly. While he realizes that he never dropped a solo, full-length album, he still thinks that he sang the hardest verses he’s ever heard.
“Any song he was on was tight as a mothafucka,” said Q. “Everything he was on he made hit records, you know? He’s responsible for a lot of niggas’ careers. That’s how I look at it. He brought life to the song. He was like the first to me. He wasn’t the first, but for me and my generation Nate Dogg was the first gangsta singer. That wasn’t like really the vocalist. No Stevie Wonder type or R. Kelly type. It’s more like some gangsta singing…He sung the hardest verse you ever heard.”
