Schoolboy Q is the self-proclaimed weirdo of the TDE crew, and his strange sense of humor tends to shine through in his work. When the Black Hippy crew gets together, you can almost always count on Q to lighten the mood, while the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul wade into more introspective waters.
Q sat down with the folks at Montreality for a brief interview session, and he unleashed some thoughts on a variety of topics. Schoolboy said he's already hard at work on his next project, but he shared bad news about a possible project with the Black Hippy crew of Kendrick, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock. Q said the busy schedules of the TDE crew make it hard to envision ever having the time to record a full album, and claims their desire to put together cohesive projects makes it much tougher to jump from one thing to the next.
"People don't understand when you're working on an album and you're getting into a groove, it's hard to stop that groove and that zone you're in, that vision you got, to jump onto a whole new thing and restart from a blank sheet basically," said Schoolboy. "We don't just put albums out and call it something and it's just a bunch of dope songs, everything we do over there is like a concept."
While it's a shame we probably won't get an album from one of the best collectives in hip-hop, Q did say not to rule it out altogether. "If we can make it work, I'm down to do it," he said. "Those my homies, of course I want to do the album with them."
