ScHoolboy Q is perhaps the most notorious golfer in all of hip-hop. The rapper has frequently spoken out about how much he loves the sport and even collaborated with a PGA Tour video game a few years ago. While it was passion that originally led him to the sport, he revealed in a recent appearance on Lil Yachty's podcast what kept him there. He was funding his time between new rap releases with money he made from golf.

“I don’t kick it in the studio no more," Q said at the beginning of the conversation. He went onto explain the ways that rapping was lucrative for him, but he also made quite a bit of money from playing golf. “I was able to relax for five years. I made a lot of money off rap, but golf helped me a lot," he revealed. Unfortunately, there was more to the story. He opened up on refusing numerous endorsement deals because of alleged racism and the desire for him to appear "more black." Check out the full podcast appearance he made below.
