Schoolboy Q: SXSW Is Stupid, Corporate and I May Not Come Back

(AllHipHop News) Quincy Hanley may still love being Schoolboy Q but his affinity for the music industry is waning by the day. Less than a week after Schoolboy Q voiced his regret of Top Dawg Entertainment signing with a major label, he derides South By South West for its apparent change for new artist discovery to another corporate industry event.

According to Q an in interview with The Associated Press, the event has lost its focus on the independent artist and become “corporate”:

It’s stupid. They changed it all up. It’s corporate. I don’t ever want to come back unless they change it to where the fans are in. I’m tired of performing and seeing my fans outside the gate. … That’s not fair. It’s not about the fans no more, it’s all about money, who can give you the best look

The article stated that the interview took place this past Saturday (March 14) as he prepared for a show, which may have been his performance at Spin Magazine’s Spin Day Party. Following his performance, Q sent out a few tweets from his personal Twitter account complaining about his set and SXSW as an event:
