Q also talked about Nipsey Hussle’s passing.
The interview, which was conducted by Charlamagne Tha God, covers a number of topics, from the making of CrasH Talk to kicking his syrup addiction to fame to the deaths of Nipsey Hussle and close friend Mac Miller. (Speaking about Nipsey Hussle, Q said: “The first nigga when my first album dropped… to tell me congratulations and he did it in person.”
The most powerful moment came when he talked about the death of Mac Miller, saying “To this day, I just don’t understand how I can’t call my niggaa no more. Losing a friend to gangbanging is way different to losing a friend that’s, like, an innocent little kid that’s super pure.”
At one point, Q started getting emotional and had to walk away from the interview:
