Rap-sensation of the fall, sharp as a tack on ‘Blank Face LP’
From the talented stables of Top Dawg Entertainment, where Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and one Kendrick Lamar also reside (the homies with whom Quincy Matthew Hanley forms hip-hop supergroup Black Hippy, after hours). The imposing guest list on ScHoolboy Q’s fourth ‘Blank Face LP’ (08/07) – successor to ‘Oxymoron’ from ’14 – is huge, with in the featuring-main role: Vince Staples, Anderson .Paak, Miguel and Kanye West. And behind the dials: Cardo (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa), Metro Boomin (Young Thug, Future, Kanye West), Swizz ‘Mr. Alicia Keys’ Beatz (DMX, Jay Z, Beyoncé, Pusha T) and Tyler, The Creator. Staggering stuff!
With his edgy, socially conscious raps (influenced by Biggie & Nas) and a brand new fourth longplayer to his name, Q is set on claiming his spot as one of the most talked-about (West Coast)-rappers of the moment. Start of the summer or not, we’re already ready for a very very exciting new School(boy Q)-year!
There is a free aftershow by Frontal with Stikstof in the AB Club for all the attendees of the Schoolboy Q-concert on 05/12.
