Schoolboy Q: Kendrick Is Bigger Than The Rest Of Us, Criticizes XXL Cover (VIDEO)


(AllHipHop News) In an entertainment industry based on presentation, perception often times becomes reality and Schoolboy Q seems to fully understand this ideal. In a recent interview with MTV News, Schoolboy Q shared Ab-Soul’s distaste for XXL’s Black Hippy cover and addressed the popularity hierarchy in the group.

After calling the cover title “so disrespectful”, Q reasoned that the shoot was proposed to them differently than what the title implied:

We didn’t go into that shoot saying, ‘This is Kendrick with Black Hippy photo shoot for the cover.’ We went in there and said, ‘This is a Black Hippy shoot,’ so we expect a Black Hippy shoot.

While insulted by the title, Schoolboy Q does understand the reality of having a labelmate that has already begun his commercial ascension:

At the end of the day and I always say this, too, Kendrick, he’s way ahead of us. He’s a platinum artist. I haven’t dropped my album yet. [Jay] Rock’s working on his major-label album. Ab-Soul’s working on his major-label album. We still haven’t dropped our major-label albums, so honestly, at the same time, at the end of the day, I mean he is fucking Kendrick Lamar.

Check out the full interview with MTV News which also includes Jay Rock’s feelings on the XXL cover:

    The media won’t let these dudes just be great man. They’re all really good artists, don’t act like they on the Kendrick express. I’m sure Kendrick would say the same thing.

    This is where Kendrick should step up and express is displeasure as well. If you talking Black Hippy its the group, if its Kendrick Lamar, then its just him.
