ScHoolboy Q Schedule
As one of rap's most charismatic figures, ScHoolboy Q is also very candid in his music. "Everything
I put on paper is a true story. Some of it may have a little something added or taken out because I can't put the real out
there all the way. But it's always true."
ScHoolboy Q's career has been powered by immediate favorites like "I'm Good,"
"#BetIgotsomeweed" and "Birds & The Beez." And, if you're a fan of hip-hip music, you really need to make a point of hearing
these songs in person. He is criss-crossing the country, taking stages this year at high-profile venues like Celebrity Theatre
in Phoenix; Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas; The Rave - Eagles Club in Milwaukee; and more!

ScHoolboy Q Background
Born on a military
base in Germany, Quincy Hanley's mother selected a surname for him randomly after she and his father split up. His dad stayed
in the Army while his mother took Hanley to Texas for a few years before relocating to California. Hanley was raised in L.A.
After high school, Hanley studied at a number of Los Angeles-area colleges, including: Glendale Community College, L.A. City
College, Southwest College and West Los Angeles College. Hanley said that he wasn't really in it for the education. "... I
wasn't really paying attention in class. I was just in there making sure I did enough work so I could still be eligible. I
wasn't really trying to pass the class. I was just trying to be eligible to play football."
When asked as to how he
became known as "ScHoolboy Q," he explained: "When I was in school, all the homies called me Schoolboy. I wore glasses and
I had a 3.3 in high school, before f****** up my senior year gang-banging. My name's Quincy, so I just stick to ScHoolboy
He said he penned his very first verse when he was just 16 years old but didn't really pursue his passion for music
until five years later. "I wrote my first verse when I was 16. I wasn't really rapping, but you know everybody wrote a verse
before. I wrote the verse but I wasn't really f****** with it. By 21, I started to really get into it and gained a passion
for it. You got to let your aggression out, so you got to get in the booth and let it out. I was really working on my craft,
studying music and I became Q. I did all of it, school and the streets. I was just lost; I didn't know what I wanted to do.
I was just trying to do something. Then I found music and it was just over after that. I made my first little bit of money
doing music, after that I wanted to get used to doing it, and I kept rapping. Then it became something that I had to do."
Q partnered with Top Dawg Entertainment and worked with their artists. He collaborated with Jay Rock and Ab Soul the first
time he stepped into the studio. Of his initial time, ScHoolboy Q said, "I walked in and the beat was playing. Ali told them
that I rap. Punch told me to jump on the beat. It was a record that Jay Rock and Ab-Soul were writing to, so then I wrote
it. Punch liked it and he told me to come back through. I kept coming back, kept getting better and eventually they signed
me to [Top Dawg Entertainment]."
Two years later, he issued his debut mixtape called Schoolboy Turned Hustla. After
this release, he inked a deal with Top Dawg Entertainment in 2009. He eventually established Black Hippy, with comrade label-mates
and fellow collaborators, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul and Kendrick Lamar.
A disc track titled, "Ezell (40 Glocc Killa)" arrived
in 2009 followed by his sophomore mixtape, Gangsta & Soul.
At the beginning of 2011, he issued Setbacks exclusively
on iTunes. It was his first independent album under the Top Dawg label. The album landed at No. 100 on the Billboard 200.
After the album's release, he gave the album away on Twitter for free.
Setbacks catapulted Hanley into the limelight
and garnered him an enormous Internet fan base. In March 2011, he headlined his first show, which took place in West Hollywood,
California. He dropped his album, Habits & Contradictions in 2012 and Oxymoron in 2014.
