ScHoolboy Q Played Golf to Battle Depression During Making of 'CrasH Talk'

“They were trash.”

ScHoolboy Q season has arrived, and with it comes the revelation that Q loves making music almost as much as his new passion for... Golf. 

In a new interview with GQ, Q revealed that while he set into a depression in the process of making his forthcoming CrasH Talk, he used golf to steady himself.

He also revealed he made three albums prior to CrasH Talk, two of which were scrapped and one of which was completed in full before Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar convinced him it was not the one.

He estimates that he made and discarded two full albums (“They were trash”) and completed a third, which he briefly concluded was ready for consumption before labelmates Kendrick and Jay Rock convinced him it wasn't. Darkness set in.

That darkness took the form of lethargy and general maltreatment of Q's body. 

“I'd be in the house smoking weed, just waiting to go to the studio every day," he told veteran music journalist Jeff Weiss. "That's not a good life. That brings on depression. You know how bad it is when you're going through all this shit in your head and all you're doing is going to the studio and back home? It's toxic for your kid, too.”

With the rambunctious nature of his singles, it sounds as if Q shook what was hurting him. Often, we only see artists as a means of entertainment and forget that they are people, too, who go through full ranges of emotion to complete their art. 

Good for Q for getting better, for finding his balance in golf of all things. Hopefully, we get some tee'd up bars on CrasH Talk, coming April 26.
