So What Advice Does Kendrick Lamar Have For ScHoolboy Q?

,” Kendrick told MTV News on Saturday in New York City

If you remember our 2dope conversation with ScHoolboy Q back in November, Q said Kendrick Lamar had left him no choice but to make a classic record (or rather a “hell of an album” that he wants us to judge if it’s a classic or not). Flash forward to this past Saturday in New York City, Kendrick Lamar tells MTV that the only advice he has is for Groovy Q to be… Groovy Q.

Any advice I would donate to Q is really just continue to do what he been doin’. It’s unquestionably the big leagues, but he got it. I ain’t gotta tell him too much, because we sat in that studio throughout them years together and planned out what’s to come in the future (also stated in our previous convo with Q), and the future is now, so he already know. Just continue doin’ what he been doin’, and everything else will prosper behind that.

When asked if he thinks ScHoolboy Q feels any pressure after the overwhelming success of good kid, m.A.A.d city, Kendrick responded with.

I haven’t asked him yet, but when I go in those sessions and he in there, he comfortable. He’s excited more than anything, and I think he feels the same way that I felt before my album came out.

One thing is for sure, with both Q’s Oxymoron and Ab-Soul/JMSN’s Unit 6 on the horizon, TDE ain’t slowing down anytime soon.

In the third and final segment of 2DopeBoyz and TheWellVersed‘s sit down with ScHoolboy Q in Las Vegas, the Black Hippy explains why he does not want to meet or work with Nas (his favorite rapper) and reveals that he’ll be dropping a new project before the year is over (with his debut album following in 2013).

ScHoolboy Q Says Kendrick Lamar Has Left Him No Choice But To Make A “Classic” (Video)

With good kid, m.A.A.d city pushing nearly a quarter million sales in it’s first week and is receiving such high praise (except from Shyne of course), we wondered how high the bar has been set for the rest of the TDE camp. So in part two of the DopeHouse and TheWellVersed‘s sit down with Q in Vegas, we ask the bucket hat rapper what it means for the next in line, and how much pressure it puts on them to top Kendrick’s major label debut.

Every time we drop an album it raises the bar for the rest of us. Kendrick left me no choice but to make a classic record. I’m not about to put an album that’s just okay. Top Dawg is not going to let me do it. It’s impossible for me not to drop — I don’t want to say classic — but a hell of an album that I’ll let you all say if its classic. Kendrick raised the bar that high.

Q also speaks on how he, Soul, Kendrick and Jay Rock had their takeover in mind since the beginning..

Me, Soul, Jay Rock and Kendrick used to sit in the studio talking about what would happen when we got there. We were speaking it into existence. We knew this shit was going to happen. You’ve got to have that confidence. I say it all the time that rappers are too nice. They don’t have the cockiness in them. Everyone takes the cockiness as being big headed but you gotta know you’re the shit to be the shit.

And to close out part two of our 2Dope convo, he speaks on touring without his daughter and how he feels he deserves the success he’s been getting. Look out for the third and final segment (which is gonna get a lot of folks talking) dropping tomorrow!

After rocking the House of Blues stage in Las Vegas as part of the LongLiveA$AP Tour, Groovy Q sat down with TheWellVersed and yours truly in the back of his tour bus for a 2dope convo. In the select clip above, Q speaks on Kendrick Lamar recent success (and how that doesn’t equate to the whole TDE roster “making it” just yet, hopes no one comes up with a better ad-lib than “Yawk Yawk”, laughs at Shyne’s comments on good kid, m.A.A.d city and brushes off any “beef” with Blu.

Kendrick made it. Me, Jay Rock and Soul haven’t made it. Jay Rock dropped his album but it was more on an independent level. We still wanna take it to the next level. We all dropped independent albums. That’s a big accomplishment for us, to actually show up on Billboard and move units independently. I feel like Kendrick is the only one that’s made it between us. Dropped that debut, sell a bunch of records, got corny niggas like Shyne hating, started a riot in LA. I’m proud of that shit. That’s ‘made it’.

Stay tuned as we’ve got a couple more segments on the way.
