Schoolboy Q Reacts to Essay About Him Encouraging White People to Say N-Word: ‘I Was on Drugs… No I Don’t’

“You feed my family, you pay my rent, you know what I’m saying? You’re not racist, you in here listening to my music,” Q said in response on KMEL. “The line ‘n***a’ comes up, I’m not not expecting you to ‘ba ba, ba ba ba’ like, say it, it’s a rap concert. I’m not telling you to go out on the street and say it. Don’t do that. But when you’re in a concert, man, be comfortable.”

While Q is prepping his next album, Blue Lips, for release on Mar. 1, Abdurraqib’s next book, There’s Always This Year, will drop just a few weeks after on Mar. 26.
