This would've been devastating
For most rappers, quitting the game for good doesn’t usually come until they either reach a certain age or they get into a new career. While some just fade out of relevancy, and others go to a different aspect of entertainment, one young rapper almost parted ways with music for another reason. Fans were caught off guard after hearing why he almost quit hip hop forever.
After a lengthy wait for fans, ScHoolboy Q finally released his sophomore album this past week. Despite all of the horrible events going down throughout the country between police officers and citizens, the TDE rapper pushed music out for the fans as scheduled.
For His Daughter
Even though the album finally came out this week, the rapper made a big revelation to fans. In a new interview, “After Oxymoron, I almost quit. I was gone for a year and a half. And then before that I was gone for a year. And then before that I was gone for six months. You get what I’m saying? That’s three years. My daughter’s seven.”
A Better Provider
He continued, “Like the first two years I didn’t raise her because I was dirt broke. Then I only got two years in with her. My daughter always lived with me, so I only got two years of raising her out of seven years. So it’s like I’m not about to be that rapper. I’m not about to be that person that puts his job, his business, his money over his family. I go out and I please everybody else, making this money and making other people money, meanwhile my kid, my family, they’re sitting back waiting for me to come home. That ain’t cool.”
