Neighborhood: South Central
Signature style: Gettin' buckets.
If there's one thing you need to know about Schoolboy Q's style, it's bucket hats. The Top Dawg Ent. emcee might chill with Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky, but his personal style is expressly his own. We spotted him in a Supreme hockey jersey at SXSW, but the weed-and-brew emcee has something peculiar about the way he dresses and rocks the mic. His lyrics soak up an East Coast influence, while his dress and flow place him amongst rappers who came out of L.A.'s Project Blowed—a result of hip-hop's growing "hippy" movement.
In addition to his 360-brimmed hat collection, you can catch Q in hoodies, tees, camo shorts, and even a drug rug. Perfect for his under-the-influence rhymes.
