ScHoolBoy Q Says Gangster Rappers Are No More

Reported By @KlearJ
With all of the new titles for rappers going around, it seems to ScHoolBoy Q that the title "Gangster" rapper has gone to the wayside. In a recent interview with MTV, ScHoolBoy Q clarifies his status by saying, "I'm not one of them rappers that's scared to put a title on their name," ScHoolboy Q said during the interview. "Conscious rappers never like to be called conscious rappers and a lyrical rapper never like to be a party rapper. I'm a gangster rapper, that's who I am. I happen to make fun records at the same time, that's what I do. I joke, I bag on niggas, my personality is like that, but I am a gangster rapper and that's what I'm gonna bring to the table."

He also went on to say that gangster rappers are not around anymore.

"There's no more gangster rappers," Q said. "It's just trap music now. So I wanna get that old feeling back that I do naturally. I'm not necessarily trying to bring gangster rap back. I'm just trying to let you know it's still here and I'm a part of it. I feel like I'm the only one out of the coast that's doing this gangster rap shit the way that it used to be done...how niggas used to put detail in their music, not just going to the club and turning up."

Q expresses that you can look for more of that style of rap on his upcoming release "OxyMoron."

"I'm just telling my story and what I grew up around and what I seen and what I did and I wanna put that in the light instead of everybody just smiling," ScHoolboy said. "Like Eminem said, 'Whatever happened to wildin' out and being violent?/Whatever happened to catchin a good-ol' fashioned passionate ass-whoopin' and getting your shoes coat and your hat tooken?'

"I'm one of them niggas," Q continued. "Whatever happened to that? I don't want niggas to get beat up or no shit like that, but at the end of the day, that is a part of life and I like that type of music. That's what pushed West Coast music to where it was at like when Dre, Snoop and all them...Dogg Pound. That's what they was doin' and that's what they was talking about and that's what I was raised off of."

So Mic Hustlers, do you think that Gangsters have left rap?
