ScHoolboy Q has been comparatively quiet for the previous 12 months or so, which makes his knowledge all of the extra welcome. Now, with 21 Savage on the middle of hip-hop discourse, the TDE lyricist has taken a second to supply a PSA of types. While he does not fairly take a hostile tone, he does channel his internal dad with a stern message to anybody trying to poke enjoyable at Savage’s expense. Of course, Q is not any stranger to clowning others with out mercy, a reality not completely misplaced on him.
“IF u dissing 21 Savage u a clown,” he writes, echoing a notion put forth by Offset, a person prepared to throw down within the identify of Savage. “N phrases do not even be going to the elementary scHool of the Hood they claiming. WHats the distinction? N phrases come via and put it down, He put it down easy as tHat.”
He does, nevertheless, make an vital clarification. “I am not talkin bout memes,” he explains. “I am a bootleg comic myself so i am all for laffing. however i am not going to play with anutHa man cHaracter beHind a display screen. I am a lil bitch I do know braH.” And there you’ve got it. Q has spoken.
It’s cool to see Q driving for the homie 21, particularly after the pair not too long ago linked up for some critical warmth on “good day.” Respect to the TDE veteran, and relaxation assured that his return will quickly come. It’s solely a matter of when.
