Early Start

Quincy Matthew Hanley, also known as Schoolboy Q, was born on October 26, 1996, in Germany. His parents went through a divorce before his birth. His mother then moved to the United States. Quincy got addicted to crack in his teenage years. He was an active member of a gang as well. The gang was none other than the infamous gang called 'the 52 Hoover Gangster Crips.' He had even managed to get good grades in his junior years while selling drugs at the same time. The senior member of his gangs had thus nicknamed him 'Schoolboy,' as he was a schoolboy who sold drugs. However, He wasn't the same student in his senior year. Schoolboy corrupted an industrious security guard to alter his transcripts and got graduated from high school. Later, he went on to attend four different colleges, but he never graduated. He was even selected to play American Football at West Los Angeles College. He was a good football player since his early days. But he neither played football nor attended the classes at the university: he just sold drugs, participated in gangbangs, and fulfilled his crack appetite.

Jailtime

In 2007, he got finally arrested for an undisclosed crime. He had managed to avoid the police, but the fate was against him this time. He then spent 3 months in jail and the 3 months in house arrest. Upon completing the 6months of jail time, Quincy decided to do something with his life. However, he was struggling to balance his finances, and his girlfriend also got pregnant. In 2008, he released his first mixtape named 'Schoolboy Turned Hustla,' collaborating with G.E.D. Inc, which was the same imprint that had helped Tyga launch his career. He got into rap hearing 50 Cent's advice for the people leaving jail. 50 cent had advised such people to get into rap to express their pain. Quincy had only a few verses under his belt, but he ultimately made it.

Successful Rapper

Hanley's musical career began at the age of 21 after he signed a contract with Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) in 2006.  Quincy worked with Black Hippy cohorts Jay Rock and Ab-Soul at TDE's studio for the first time. He managed to impress the label and signed the contract.  He had been associated with TDE since 2006, but he only signed a recording contract with it on July 29, 2009. Matthew gained name fame when he came up with big solo independent album Setbacks on January 11, 2011. The critically acclaimed album reached number 100 on the US Billboard 200 chart in its first week. The rapper reportedly made $800,000 from the first album. He could have earned more from Setbacks, but he set the album free on iTunes within the few weeks from its release. The second album Habits & Contradictions was also a success. The album eventually made $525,000. The year 2012 was a big year for the artist. In 2012, he released his third album Oxymoron and single Collard Greens.
