Rappers can often portray a hard, "don't fuck with me" demeanor, but many of them have teddy bear–soft hearts—especially when it comes to their kids. In a Noisey interviewSchoolboy Q adorably gushes about being a single father to his seven-year-old daughter Joy. He reveals,

I only want daughters now. I don’t want no sons. I’ll maybe have two more kids, but I want two more girls. You think about what you do now. Certain things I do in videos, I go to the extreme, but I won’t go to the major, major extreme where my daughter’s gonna look back at it. ‘Cause my daughter's gonna see all of the shit I’m doing one day. She may be in the room or even one day in college googling 'ScHoolboy Q' and she may see something that may throw her off. I don’t wanna do that.

The Cali rapper goes on to joke about not being a good cook and "tight" trips to Disneyland, before picking the Black Hippy Crew member that would make the best babysitter. And no, it's definitely not Kendrick Lamar! He hilariously explains,

Kendrick, fuck no! I’m not giving him my kid. He’s weird. Soul is a fucking scumbag. He won’t get my kid. So fuck no. Jay Rock, he got a kid. He knows what to do with a kid, you know what I mean? He knows how to control the crying, the pouting, the “I don’t want to do this.” He can control that. Kendrick and Ab-Soul? You got a weirdo and a scumbag, I’m cool.

Schoolboy Q is gearing up for the release of his fourth album, Blank Face LP, on July 8. Below, watch an archival Fuse interview where he reveals which album he considers to be the "bible of rap."
