After a two-year hiatus from music, TDE rapper Schoolboy Q has returned to the center of the rap universe by announcing his sophomore project Blank Face. Q’s first tribute to the rap world, Oxymoron, debuted at #1 after he signed a contract with Interscope Records in 2012.
Q follows Kendrick Lamar’s release of Untitled Unmastered, which was announced along with a bevy of other TDE albums, by Top Dawg in March via an Instagram whiteboard post featuring every TDE artist as well as two John Doe artists. One artist we soon learned was Lance Skiiiwalker who released a single called “Speed” and will feature on Schoolboy Q’s track “Kno Ya Wrong.”Schoolboy Q released the tracklist for Blank Face with a strong supporting cast of artists and producers. The artists include Kanye West, Jadakiss, Vince Staples, E-40, SZA, Tha Dogg Pound, Candice Pillay, Anderson.Paak and Miguel among others. Production wise, Schoolboy Q grabs top talent as well in Swizz Beatz, Cardo, Tae Beast, Alchemist, Sounwave, Tyler the Creator, Willie B, Adrian Younge, as well as possibly the hottest producer in the game at the moment, Metro Boomin.
“THat Part” featuring Kanye West is the official single released by Schoolboy Q, with the project slated to drop July 8th.
