ScHoolboy Q speaks on 50 Cent influence on him [Video]

He may hail from Compton, the home of West Coast’s gangsta rap, but Black Hippy member ScHoolboy Q cites 50 Cent as one of his biggest influences. Speaking with VIBE recently, the Californian rapper spoke on his relation to Fiddy’s music and the life-saving inspiration he found in the G-Unit frontman.

“50 ain’t got the best bars bars, you know what I mean? He ain’t got Jay-Z bars, but this n***a’s confidence on the record, you can’t deny,” he said. “He knows what he talking about and you know what he’s doing, so that shit is hard. That’s why he had the biggest influence on me.”

Schoolboy went on to say that Fifty’s advise for former convicts to get into the rap game encouraged him to take rap seriously and those words probably saved his life.
