Schoolboy Q stopped by Power 106 to chop it up with the LA Leakers to talk his new single and the untimely passing of Nipsey Hussle.
Q discusses his new single “CHopstix” featuring Travis Scott and explains how the collab came about. “Travis, thats been my boy…I was on his first album. You know what I mean? We cool. It’s more like a bond, like a peer thing.”
“People deal with things they own way bro. Everybody ain’t gotta go to the internet dude.” the “Numb Numb Juice” rapper explains of his social media posts last week. Q, address people on his IG story who were making comments of him not tributing Nipsey via social media immediately after his passing. “It makes you feel comfortable. I don’t post the dead. I don’t like pictures that people are posting of somebody that got murdered. I deal with metaphors for a living dude, I’m not liking the picture of a dead man dog.”
Another little known gem that Schoolboy confessed was the he actually ran into Nip at Power 106 the night he dropped his third album. “Nipsey was so cold homie,” he started. “When I dropped ‘Oxymoron’ he was the first person I seen. When midnight struck he was the first person I seen, and the first person to tell me congratulations on my album before anybody else told me dog.”
The rapper says that Nipsey will be remembered by not only what he did for his community but the city of Los Angeles as a whole, and that “nobody did it like him.” We couldn’t agree more.
