Schoolboy Q + Isaiah Rashad + Vince Staples

79 Washington St, Providence, RI   (view map)

Hip-hop saved South Central LA wordsmith Schoolboy Q, whose previous work experience included coming up with the Crips while hustling (and eventually getting hooked on) OxyContin. He turned to music, worked his way up, and inked a deal with Interscope; earlier this year he dropped the #1 album in the country with Oxymoron, which featured production by heavy hitters Pharrell and Tyler the Creator and guest verses from Raekwon and Kurupt. “Real niggas don’t die, homeboy, we multiply,” Q warns on the kinetic opener “Gangsta,” and recants an upbringing of “doo-rags and flatlines, drive-bys at bedtime” on “Break the Bank.” Q will hit Lupo’s, 79 Washington St, Providence, with support from Isaiah Rashad and Vince Staples at 8 pm | $22.50 advance, $25 day of show, $100 meet-and-greet package available in advance via | 401.331.5876 |
