ScHoolboy Q, known for his love of golf within the hip-hop community, recently disclosed the financial benefits he reaped from the sport during an appearance on Lil Yachty’s podcast. Despite his success in rap, Q revealed that golf served as a lucrative source of income during breaks between album releases.

“I don’t kick it in the studio no more,” Q remarked, highlighting how golf provided a relaxing alternative. “I made a lot of money off rap, but golf helped me a lot,” he added, shedding light on the financial stability the sport offered him.

However, Q’s revelations weren’t all positive. He shared his experiences of turning down endorsement deals due to alleged racism and pressure to conform to certain stereotypes. This struggle exemplifies the challenges faced by black artists in the industry.

Q’s podcast appearance coincided with the release of his latest album, “Blue Lips,” marking his return after a five-year hiatus. The album has garnered praise from fans and critics alike, following his less well-received 2019 release, “Crash Talk.”

In addition to his music, Q has showcased his humor through viral moments on various shows and podcasts. Despite the success of “Blue Lips,” Q revealed that a collaboration with A$AP Rocky for the album fell through due to scheduling conflicts.

Overall, Q’s journey in both music and golf highlights the complexities of navigating success in the entertainment industry, while also shedding light on issues of racism and representation.
