Early Life

Schoolboy Q was born Quincy Matthew Hanley on October 26, 1986, in Wiesbaden, West Germany, on a U.S. Army base. He is the son of a Honduran-American father and an African-American mother. They divorced before Schoolboy Q's birth, and his mother gave him a random surname instead of giving him the last name of either of his parents. His father stayed in the Army, and Schoolboy Q moved to Texas with his mother. The two later relocated to South Central Los Angeles. Schoolboy Q began playing football at the age of 6, and he continued until the age of 21, playing the positions of receiver, returner, tailback, and cornerback. He studied at John Muir Middle School and Crenshaw High School, then he attended Glendale Community College, Los Angeles Southwest College, Los Angeles City College, and West Los Angeles College. While growing up in South Central L.A., Schoolboy Q joined a gang, the 52 Hoover Gangster Crips. He told "Complex" in 2012, "I was gang-banging at 12. I was a Hoover Crip. My homies were doing it and I wanted to do it. I can't really explain that. I didn't get into it with another hood or anything like that. I was just following the leader." Schoolboy Q became a drug dealer and sold drugs such as Oxycontin and crack cocaine. In 2007, he was sentenced to six months in jail after being arrested for a home invasion, but he spent half of his sentence under house arrest.


Though Schoolboy Q has said that he began writing at the age of 16, he didn't get serious about music until he was 21.
