ScHoolboy Q: New Zealand Tour Announced


Thursday 27 March, 2014 - Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) recording artist, ScHoolboy Q has announced a series of dates across Australia and New Zealand this June, with special guest and fellow TDE label mate, Isaiah Rashad.

With his debut Top Dawg Entertainment / Interscope Records album Oxymoron opening at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and being one quarter of revered hip-hop group Black Hippy - alongside Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Kendrick Lamar - ScHoolboy Q has earned his stripes as one of music’s most exciting, fresh and charismatic talents.

ScHoolboy Q drew the attention of a wanting audience with his guest verse on Kendrick Lamar’s “Michael Jordan” and his first independent release, Setbacks. The release sheet has since grown in number, acclaim with considerable collaborations (including ASAP Rocky, 2 Chainz and The Alchemist).
Noting The Notorious B.I.G., Nas and 50 Cent as his biggest influences, the California lifestyle can easily be heard in his voice and lyrical content. His ability to mesh the two allows a delivery that makes him standout on every track he hops on, while achieving a balance that most young rappers don’t attain until their lucky enough to call themselves a veteran.

Joining him on tour will be TDE’s newest signee, Isaiah Rashad. Hailing from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Rashad has been making waves internationally with the release his debut EP Cilvia Demo which landed in the Billboard top 40 and earning him kudos as the one to watch by RollingStone.com in 2014.
