Great news for all hip hop fans! One of the world’s biggest hip hop stars of today, US rapper Schoolboy Q will perform at Roxy Prague on Wednesday, 14th May. Kendrick Lamar’s collegue from Top Dawg Entertainment is coming to Europe in order to promote his latest album, Oxymoron, to be released in the end of February. Tickets are available via Ticketpro.

„We’re totally delighted by the confirmation of Schoolboy Q show in Prague! We have been waiting for such an event since June 2012 when we hosted Mac Miller”, affirms the organizer, Fource Entertainment. 27 year-old American whose ID states Quincy Matthew Hanley as his official name will set on two tours – another TDE hope, Isaiah Rashad will support him on the European leg.

Before Schoolboy Q made it to international music headlines as a rapper, he “worked” as drug dealer. He wrote his first line some time around 2006 and three years later signed with the independent label Top Dawg Entertainment. Since then, he’s released two albums and collaborated with other superstars of US hip hop such as Kendrick Lamar, ASAP Rocky, Mac Miller. He was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for co-producing Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ album The Heist. It’s through his latest album Oxymoron that Schoolboy Q tries to excuse his previous sins argumenting that all he’d ever done was for the good of his daughter.

The album, co-produced by Pharell Williams amongst others, deals with history of Crips gang from 1969 to present. Prague fans will certainly rejoice even more to learn another hip hop star is coming to support Schoolboy Q, the Tennessee-born Isaiah Rashad. Having released his debut EP Cilvia Demo, Rashad was highlighted by the renowned US mag as one of the names to explode in 2014.
