As he gears up for the release of his Oxymoron debut, ScHoolboy Q visits Hot 97 for a discussion about where he’s at in his career now and where he came from.

During the interview with personality Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds, the Los Angeles rapper delves into his gangbanging history, which he says started at the age of 12. From hanging with his young friends and starting their own clique to getting jumped onto a Crip set, Q re-visits his past, but admits he’s embarrassed about it.

Later Q talks about his album, groupies, Lean (aka sizzurp), and his conversations with Kendrick Lamar.
