In a recent interview with Hot 97, TDE member ScHoolboy Q revealed that after the release of his album ‘Oxymoron‘, he gave some serious thought to hanging up the mic.
Q went on to explain that time away from his family had him considering the move:
“After Oxymoron, I almost quit,” Schoolboy Q said. “I was gone for a year and a half. And then before that I was gone for a year. And then before that I was gone for six months. You get what I’m saying? That’s three years. My daughter’s seven.”
“Like the first two years I didn’t raise her because I was dirt broke,” he said. “Then I only got two years in with her. My daughter always lived with me, so I only got two years of raising her out of seven years. So it’s like I’m not about to be that rapper. I’m not about to be that person that puts his job, his business, his money over his family. I go out and I please everybody else, making this money and making other people money, meanwhile my kid, my family, they’re sitting back waiting for me to come home. That ain’t cool.”
