About Schoolboy Q

ScHoolboy Q had a hit in 2014 with “Man of the Year,” but his fashion statement at the 2017 Grammys should have people calling him “Father of the Year,” wearing a pink “girl power” hoodie while accompanying his daughter, also dressed in pink, on the red carpet of the awards show. While the LA rapper has a history of R-rated rhymes that would have gotten him kicked out of class, any teacher would give him a gold star for his message of women’s empowerment and commitment to family. 1.8M+ @groovyq Instagram followers and 2.3M+ @ScHoolboyQ Twitter fans see him on dad duty, taking the stage in front of massive audiences, and getting back in the gym now that his new album, which he says is focused on fatherhood, is “90% done.”

Schoolboy Q's best work on social
