Ab-Soul ft ScHoolboy Q – SOPA


Kendrick Lamar and Black Hippy have closed a deal with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment and Interscope Records.

According to FADER, Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith says that the pair have “just closed” a joint venture deal with the labels. K. Dot’s official label debut Good Kid in a Mad City will release jointly between Top Dawg, Aftermath and Interscope. All future releases by ScHoolBoy Q, Ab-Soul and Jay Rock will release through Top Dawg and Interscope.

A few weeks ago, ScHoolboy Q hinted about the possibility of recording an entire project with Harlem upstart A$Ap Rocky. Now, in a recent interview with Maurice Garland, the TDE rapper talked about the possibility of recording a long-form collaboration with the leader of the A$AP Mob.

Although Q didn’t provide any further details about the project, he explained that both artists – who shared the booth on both of their respective mixtapes Habits and Contradictions and Live.Love.A$AP – are still very much interested in pursuing the collab. He did explain that the project most likely won’t get off the ground until the both of them finish their touring duties.

“I don’t have an answer [for when it’s gonna drop],” he said. “We’re trying, we’re trying. He’s on the road, I’m on the road. We’re gonna try and get it together. You gotta have it sound right – two of the hottest niggas coming up. I’m not a cocky nigga, but I call myself [one of] the hottest niggas [coming up in the game]. But yeah, Rocky, we gotta do it.”

Q also spoke about balancing his role as a rapper and a father. He explains that while he doesn’t get to see his young daughter while touring, he always brings her to recoridng sessions, including one with the legendary Dr. Dre.

“It’s cool [being a father], my little baby Joy-Joy. I just talked to right before I went on stage,” he said. “She’s with me in the studio – my baby’s a studio baby…everybody know. Everybody knows my daughter – [Dr.] Dre, everybody.”

ScHoolBoy Q’s Habits & Contradictions was released on iTunes last week.

If you haven’t heard by now, Los Angeles rapper Schoolboy Q released his album, Habits & Contradictions, this past weekend and it’s been received very well by the public. With guest appearances from Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Jhene Aiko, and TDE labelmates Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock, it’s definitely a project to check out. One of the standout songs from it is the Kid Cudi lyric-sampling single, “Hands On The Wheel,” which features none other than Harlem’s newest rap star, A$AP Rocky. Following up from their collaboration on Rocky’s LiveLoveA$AP mixtape, “Brand New Guy,” and the dark visuals to the Habits & Contradictions album opener, “Sacreligious,” that we saw in late November, Q has returned with the music video for “Hands On The Wheel.” In the clip, he and Rocky give viewers a look into the lives of two of the most buzzing rappers of the moment, complete with women, weed and 40s. Watch the hazy, monochrome visuals above, and head over to iTunes to purchase Habits & Contradictions.
