Schoolboy Q has been missing from the music scene but he’s been dabbling in golf. This past weekend, the TDE rapper made a playing appearance at a golf tournament and talked about how the sport has changed his life.
Schoolboy Q Says “Life Is A Golf Game”
It’s no secret that Schoolboy Q has been a fan of golf as he has been playing the sport for years. However, the world recently got a closer look at how important it is to him.
Q revealed in Golf Digest he got into golf because of a bet. Now the game is helpful for him in his everyday life.
“I got into it, and it changed my mental, it let me learn myself as a person. Like, this is why certain things in my life are going bad or certain things are going good, because of the attitude thing. It fixed my attitude in life. It fixed a whole lot of things about me in life,” Schoolboy Q said while being interviewed at the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Golf Tournament.
The 35-year-old rapper talked about how he never thought he would be playing golf –especially with the life he’s had and the places he’s lived.
Fans reacted to the interview very well, with many happy to see Q healthy and others speculating that his next album will be his best.
Tyler The Creator Doesn’t Play Golf But…
Though we’ve never seen Tyler The Creator explicitly playing golf, he’s always been a champion of the aesthetic of the sport.
In December, he released a fragrance under his brand, Golf Le Fleur, which loosely translates to “the scent of golf.”
Virgil Abloh Embrace Unorthodox Sports
Golf is not the only sport the hood is embracing. Before his passing, Virgil Abloh made a commitment to help inner-city kids explore new opportunities, especially through the launch of his designer snowboards to help get kids from the “hood to the woods.”
Abloh collaborated with athlete and longtime friend, Russell Winfield, to create a limited release snowboard presented by preeminent snowboard brand, RIDE. Virgil was an avid snowboarder and had been working on the collaboration with Winfield and RIDE for the past two years.
