ScHoolboy Q Isn’t Too Optimistic About a Black Hippy Album [VIDEO]
In the four years since talk of a Black Hippy album first began, we’ve gotten a healthy amount of standout solo projects from Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock. But the people have spoken and they’re not giving up on a group album from the quartet of TDE lyricists. So when any mention of their elusive group album occurs, it’s worth discussing. In a new interview with Montreality, ScHoolboy Q does just that. Unfortunately, that part of the story, is as good as it gets.
When asked about the status of a Black Hippy album, ScHoolboy Q did not have a favorable response. According to Groovy Q, he doesn’t see there being enough time with all the members in the zone on their own solo music and busy with their personal lives. Though he thinks the chances of a Black Hippy album are slim at present, ScHoolboy doesn’t rule it out completely. “If we can make it work, I’m down to do it. Those my homies, of course I want to do the album with them. It’s just the time. It’s a lot of time put into albums. We’re not just gonna go into the studio and finish the album in a month,” explains the TDE rapper.
Along with discussing the odds of us ever getting a group album from Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and himself, Schoolboy Q also spoke on a number of other topics in his Montreality interview. Also on the agenda, Q talks hating on, then being inspired by 50 Cent, the “memorable” way he lost his virginity, and his experiences with psychedelic drugs.
Though ScHoolboy’s latest remarks about a potential Black Hippy album are less than encouraging, the TDE wordsmith did say that he’s already cooking up his next solo project. Details are scarce regarding Schoolboy’s next full-length effort, but after delivering one of the best rap albums of 2016 with his Blank Face LP, expect the bar to be pretty high for Groovy Q’s fifth studio LP.
