ScHoolboy Q On 50 Cent’s Influence (Video)

blame it on Shake April 13, 2012

During an interview with VIBE, ScHoolboy Q speaks on Curtis’ influence on his life and music.

We got the same shit going on. Everything he talk about is the same shit I did. I relate to Fifty… I can listen to 50 Cent and tell he really mean what he’s saying. He’s one of them niggas that got away with confidence. Fifty ain’t got the best bars, he ain’t got Jay-Z bars but his confidence on a record…you can’t deny it. I seen where he was doing an interview about Ja-Rule during the beef shit, he was saying that any nigga that just getting out of jail that don’t know what to do with himself is getting into the rap game. Recently when I just got out of jail I didn’t now what to do I wasn’t going to try and finish playing football. That’s when I was fucking around with rapping, I wasn’t really rapping but when I heard that I was like fuck it…I really went hard at it. Fifty probably saved my life on some real shit.

  • Even tho K Dot go hard i gotta say i fucks with Q more. 50 may not be the powerhouse he used to be but what he did for the rap game was incredible and props to Q for acknowledging that.

    ”put biggie and nas in a blender sprinkle some 50 and came out this nigga”

    It was Q’s charisma that drew me to his music in the first place so I definitely hear the influence. 50’s confidence, delivery and flow has always made him stand out.

    I’ve always said I’d love to hear a 50/Q collaboration. I bet it would sound crazy.
