ScHoolboy Q speaks on his many offers to do a line of bucket hats, and how he wishes he'd stayed independent.
ScHoolboy Q has been doing the interview circuit since the release of his major label debut, Oxymoron, and his most recent sit down with hot937.cbslocal.com, found him reflecting on his choice to go to Interscope, his many offers to do a line of bucket hats, and TDE's approach to releasing music.
“Everybody wants me to do a line,” he said of his preferred form of headwear. “There’s so many bucket hat companies offering me so much money, but I’d rather do it myself. If you wanted to give me that much money, I know I could make that much money on my own.”
Q then stressed that he feels the independent route is the best way to do things. “I already did wrong by signing a rap contract,” he said. “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.”
Even with the major label backing, ScHoolboy spoke of how his crew has maintained a unique way of releasing music by today's rap standards. “We don’t do mixtapes,” he explained. "We don’t put mixtapes out. Everything we drop is an album– we don’t play that mixtape game. We put all our time and effort into one project, to make it great instead of just doing songs for a tape. That means you’re not focused on your album.”
