Album: Habits & Contradictions
Label: Top Dawg Entertainment

The Alchemist:“I was out here in the West Coast just connecting. My man Brock brought him through to the studio with Kendrick Lamar and Mos Def. It was like a rap camp. We didn’t get anything recorded that day but that’s when I gave him that beat.

 

I'm gonna be honest that’s maybe one of my least favorite joints on his tape. That’s how good his tape is to me. No bias. I heard Habits & Contradictions and I was like, ‘Lotta good s**t on here I'm definitely not a standout.

 

“I'm gonna be honest that’s maybe one of my least favorite joints on his tape. That’s how good his tape is to me. No bias. I heard Habits & Contradictions and I was like, ‘Fuck, lotta good shit on here I'm definitely not a standout. I gotta step it up when we do new shit.’ I wanna be the standout, I wanna be the shit where your like, ‘Yo son! That shit son!’

“Schoolboy Q is so dope and he's going on another level. One of the best new artists I’ve work with. I'm hype to even be working with him. I hope I make his album. Q is on another level because he has his whole shit, his live show is dope, his personality, his music the way he records and writes is like no other.

“So expect good from him. Interscope, they didn’t even know what they were getting when they signed him up. They knew but now they’re really seeing. Shout out to the West Coast Puffy, that’s Q. That’s his code name. Code name Puffy.”
