ScHoolboy Q returns to New Zealand for Encore Tour

ScHoolboy Q returns to New Zealand for Encore Tour



ScHoolboy Q is Man of the Year. The acclaimed Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) artist can't stay away from New Zealand. Following two epic shows in June amidst a tide of international hype, ScHoolboy Q is back to offer a second helping of sharp-shooting hip-hop to New Zealand fans.

Attendees of his sold out show at James Cabaret were witness to the truth – ScHoolboy is the hottest name in hip hop. Famed for his outspoken wit, ScHoolboy Q is at the top of his game, and is set to bring his quick-spitting jams back to New Zealand for three exclusive shows in Christchurch, Wellington and Dunedin, following a massive summer tour of the US with The Weeknd and Jhene Aiko.


A rich kid of military parents gone to the streets (ScHoolboy earned his name from the high-brow schools he attended), Quincy Matthew Hanley has seen it all, from college sports to drug-slanging and jail-time. His colourful history now takes its place at the tip of the hip hop charts, with his debut Top Dawg Entertainment / Interscope Records album Oxymoron opening at number 1 on the Billboard 200.


Guesting verses for hip-hop heavyweights Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, 2Chainz and acclaimed producer The Alchemist, ScHoolboy the biggest voice in the biz – rapping about everything from cars and clothes, women and weed to childhood and lofty ambitions, with his unique LA style (by way of Texas), reminiscent of Biggie, Nas, and 50 Cent.


He's become an instant classic – with the popularity and gritty smarts most rappers don't achieve until much later in their career.


If you were at the last shows, you'll know exactly what to do. If you missed it – don't make the same mistake again. ScHoolboy Q's rhymes are world class, and he's coming back to spit them just for us.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
