Schoolboy Q: I Wish TDE Never Signed With Interscope Records (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Schoolboy Q is either experiencing major label growing pains or may have some regrets about his rap career.

In an interview with Hartford, Conneticut’s Hot 93.7, Q states that TDE no longer does mixtapes and instead only commercially released albums. Q then goes on to say tha he “did wrong by signing a rap contract”:

I’m not talking about TDE, but how we ventured off with the majors. I wish we would have still stayed indie. I don’t care about being on like 100 radios or shit like that. I love Interscope, but I wish I could have just stayed with TDE.

In a recent interview with Grantland, writer Amos Barshad stated that Interscope’s desire for radio-ready singles is what led to Oxymoron‘s delay:

He’d planned on only one radio-friendly song on the album, jamming the rest of the track list with his raw goods. But Interscope demanded three singles before he could get the green light — which, perhaps, is why it’s taken more than two years sinceHabits & Contradictions for Oxymoron to see release
