ScHoolboy Q is no longer attending SXSW, and I completely agree with his reasoning. The 28-year festival has completely jumped the shark with corporations strewn all over Austin. For a festival that is suppose to showcase emerging talent; SXSW had headliners Jay Z, Kanye West, Nas, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Cee-Lo, Rick Ross, Keith Urban and much more.
Anyway, the Oxymoron rapper shares his thoughts on SXSW and the sh*tshow it has become.
“It’s stupid. They changed it all up. It’s corporate,” he said as he prepared for a show Saturday. “I don’t ever want to come back unless they change it to where the fans are in. I’m tired of performing and seeing my fans outside the gate. … That’s not fair. It’s not about the fans no more, it’s all about money, who can give you the best look.”
