ScHoolboy Q sat down with Elliott Wilson to talk about his new album, "Oxymoron", and the state of gangsta rap in 2014.
Beyond the singles, ScHoolboy Q's new album, Oxymoron is gangsta rap through and through. In a new "CRWN" interview with Elliott Wilson, Q took some time to explain why he felt this particular sub-genre has fallen out of favor, the assumption that it has "no substance", as well as his belief that rappers are just too nice these days.
"People hear aggressive rappers and they think 'no substance.' I don't get that," he said of his critics. "How can me talking about somebody getting killed or me running from somebody trying to kill me be no substance? You clearly live behind a computer."
ScHoolboy then went on to give his theory on when gangsta rap was phased out. "Once 50 and Game stopped beefing and that, gangsta rap just fell off the map," he said. "It was just done. Then all the new nice niggas came up."
Q elaborated on how rappers are too afraid to step on any toes these days. "The new rapper now is super nice, you know what I mean?" he said. "Nobody wants to say anything about anybody. Niggas are giving interviews like they're in the NBA now... There's a whole WWE thing about this rap shit now."
