Kendrick Lamar half Schoolboy Q aus der Depression


Kendrick Lamar hat Schoolboy Q aus seiner Depression geholfen und ihm neue Möglichkeiten aufgezeigt.

Wie berichtet, traf sich Schoolboy Q mit Journalist Peter Bailey für ein ausführliches Interview. In diesem sprach er seinen Dank an Kendrick Lamar aus, der ihn damals aus einer Depression gezogen hat und ihm die Möglichkeit gab mit ihm auf Tour zu gehen und Musik zu machen. 

Über seine Depression sagte Q folgendes:

“I would say that I really believed that 2012 was gonna happen at a point because I was so down and out,”

Weiter heißt es:

“Like when you mad, you say and do things that you may not even really mean or noone will know what you’re saying. It’s just in the moment. When you’re dealing with depression, it’s the same thing it’s just over a long period of time. It ain’t just a day. Think about being mad. When you mad you say’s momentary. Imagine that the whole day. It becomes depression. Stress and depression.”

Auf die Frage, wie er es geschafft habe aus diesem Teufelskreis wieder raus zu kommen antwortete er:

“Music bro,” 

"Kendrick. Honestly, Kendrick Lamar more than anybody. He put me on the road with him. Made me his hypeman. Put some money in my pocket. Top was behind me. Punch was behind me. But mainly Kendrick was the one that showed me that this is for real. We could really eat off this shit. Not even just eat off this shit. This is something you like to do, why not love it?”

Später fügte er hinzu:

“I put my life in my music,”

Weiter heißt es:

“I don’t even know how to rap bro. Like I said, Kendrick gave me the game. I watched Kendrick, Ab-SoulJay Rock, and them niggas rap every day and took it serious. I didn’t know how to rap. At first it was just rapping before we fully grew into what we are today. They were just in the studio everyday. Rapping, rapping. Now that I see it like that, it’s like that shit was practice. Kendrick went from K. Dot to Kendrick Lamar. He changed his name. That set the tone for the whole camp almost. He changed his name and then he stopped rapping. He used to rap about shooting people, getting drunk, smoking weed, Lamborghinis. He knew that wasn’t real. That’s why it never got on. He changed his name and he put his real life story into his music and it’s been over ever since. That gave me the game. I was ScHoolboy Q, I used to try to walk with a backpack ‘cause my name is ScHoolboy Q.”
