Top Dawg Entertainment’s ScHoolboy Q recently talked about his upcoming Blank Face album and revealed what hip-hop collaborations he still has on his bucket list.
ScHoolboy said he still needed to work with rap veterans like Snoop Dogg and DJ Quik before his career is over.
“Working on an album can be stressful, it can be fun, it can be pain. It can be a lot of things because you go through all these different emotions while you’re rapping,” ScHoolboy said. “[Who do I want to work with?] Just more OGs. DJ Quik. I want to work with Too Short one day – I want to work with MC Lars. I want to work with Snoop. These are all people from my coasts I want to work with. Other than that, everything else, if it happens, if they fit, they fit. But those people, those are people I ‘have’ to work with.” (Hot 97)
A few days ago, Q discussed piecing together his new Blank Face album.
“I recorded at my house. I had a lot of time and I did whatever I wanted to do. I never felt rushed or pressured. Sometimes, when you’re in a big studio, you do studio time as a 12-hour session, so you feel like you gotta do everything that day. This time, I was able to work on a record for 24 hours and I never felt this happy in my life working on a record.” (Rap-Up)
ScHoolboy also downplayed the importance of worrying about record sales.
“Last album went No. 1. Due to streams, it’s platinum, I guess. It was already gold. I was blessed with that. I had platinum singles. It was just dope, man. I did everything I wanted to do as a rapper – At this point in my career, numbers is not a thing to me. I don’t care about a single. I don’t care about none of that. This is what it is. You like it? You don’t? I’m onto the next one anyways.” (Rap-Up)
Q went to social media in mid-June and unveiled the project’s official cover.
