ScHoolboy Q: "I Love Interscope, But I Wish I Could Have Just Stayed With TDE"
“Everybody wants me to do a line,” ScHoolboy Q says during an interview with hot937.cbslocal.com. “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.”
The TDE rapper then says he has another reason for not doing a line of bucket hats.
“I already did wrong by signing a rap contract,” ScHoolboy Q says. “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.”
ScHoolboy Q’s TDE/Interscope records debut album, Oxymoron, was the #1 album in the country last week, selling 138,950 copies. The Los Angeles rapper says that neither he nor his labelmates is working on a mixtape, though.
“We don’t do mixtapes,” he says. "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.”
