Last week, ScHoolboy Q performed at South By South West in front of thousand of attendees at multiple shows. However, the TDE artist isn’t found of the way how SXSW has changed. “It’s stupid,” says ScHoolboy Q to the Associated Press. “They changed it all up. It’s corporate.”

Now this discussion isn’t new. There has been grumbling from fans, some media and artists who feel that the essence and the original idea of SXSW has been tainted; a place where fans discover new artist to a corporate industry mixer.  Q continues on to say  “I don’t ever want to come back unless they change it to where the fans are in. I’m tired of performing and seeing my fans outside the gate. … That’s not fair. It’s not about the fans no more, it’s all about money, who can give you the best look.”

This year SXSW featured already established and huge acts such as Jay Z, Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, CeeLo Green, Rick Ross, Keith Urban and many more. Thoughts?
