Schoolboy Q Talks Plans Of A Black Hippy Album And Working On A Follow-Up To 'Oxymoron'
If you're looking forward to a Black Hippy album, you may have to shelve that hope along with your yearning for Detox.
According to HotNewHipHop, per Vibe, Schoolboy Q recently expressed doubt that a Black Hippy album will come to fruition. The "Studio" rapper cited the progress of his solo career as a a source of his doubt.
"That would be tight one day if it was to ever come out," Q said in an interview with Vibe. "People gotta understand once all your careers is doing good you can't just turn your back on your solo career to try something new. People gotta understand time is everything."
And according to Q, now is the time to show the world who he is as an individual. He also revealed that the follow-up to Oxymoron is in the warm-up stages.
"I'm in the studio just messing around right now," he said. "Not necessarily like working on my next album. I'm messing around trying to get into the groove of things. Make sure I attack my album the right way I want to attack it. You know what I'm saying? And put out another top notch album. That people are gonna talk about. So, that's my whole thing right now. Just trying to figure it out. It's like warm-ups right before spring training."
Aside from new music, the Compton Los Angeles emcee is working on his new 'Own The Summer' campaign with footwear retailer Footaction.
Footaction and Q are giving fans the opportunity to appear in a remixed video to the rapper's smash hit "Man Of The Year."
Fans are encouraged to upload videos and photos to social media outlets like Vine and Instagram along with the hashtag #OwnTheSummer. Those who use the hashtag will be automatically submitted for inclusion in the video.
Results will be released in mid-August. Get more details here.
