ScHoolboy Q Calls XXL TDE Cover “Disrespectful”

schoolboy q 2

Ab-Soul has already expressed his dissatisfaction over the latest XXL issue where TDE is on the cover with the tagline “Kendrick Lamar & Black Hippy”. Now ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock have also commented on the same in an interview with MTV. Q says it was “disrespectful” but admits that Kendrick is clearly ahead of rest in the group, popularity wise.


“We didn’t go into that shoot saying, ‘This is Kendrick with Black Hippy photo shoot for the cover.’ We went in there and said, ‘This is a Black Hippy shoot,’ so we expect a Black Hippy shoot.”

What do our readers think? Are they being too sensitive or is their reaction justified?

    too sensitive

  • Hmm

    Eminem did it with D12. These guys need to calm down. The magazine is for the general public, a lot of people that don’t follow the hip hop movement don’t even know who black hippy is. If you want to sell magazines you put the star on the front. That’s what XXL did..

    so much reaction over a small thing like this… them niggas need to sit they ass down

    D12 was signed to Eminem. Q, Soul and Rock aren’t signed to Kendrick. And Jay Rock is actually the one who put Kendrick on, so if anythin he has the most right to feel disrespect. its not a big deal but there’s nothin that they said that was wrong
