After rocking the House of Blues stage in Las Vegas as part of the LongLiveA$AP Tour, Groovy Q sat down with TheWellVersed and yours truly in the back of his tour bus for a 2dope convo. In the select clip above, Q speaks on Kendrick Lamar recent success (and how that doesn’t equate to the whole TDE roster “making it” just yet, hopes no one comes up with a better ad-lib than “Yawk Yawk”, laughs at Shyne’s comments on good kid, m.A.A.d city and brushes off any “beef” with Blu.
Kendrick made it. Me, Jay Rock and Soul haven’t made it. Jay Rock dropped his album but it was more on an independent level. We still wanna take it to the next level. We all dropped independent albums. That’s a big accomplishment for us, to actually show up on Billboard and move units independently. I feel like Kendrick is the only one that’s made it between us. Dropped that debut, sell a bunch of records, got corny niggas like Shyne hating, started a riot in LA. I’m proud of that shit. That’s ‘made it’.
Stay tuned as we’ve got a couple more segments on the way.
