BJ & Q hit up a local Harold’s for this conscious collab off the recently released M.A.F.E. Project. Watch and revisit this one above.
“I was initially very nervous playing this track for Schoolboy Q,” BJ tells FADER about the record. “It is a PSA. Its mission is to let people know that you do not have to be involved in gang-like activity to be affected by it, to be hurt or killed by it. This life is real and can hurt the most innocent of people.”
As you’d might imagine, the music video for Schoolboy Q’s “Hell of a Night” does indeed depict a hell of a night. The girls are everywhere, so are the extra-curricular activities. So are some cool special effects to create the dazed feeling from said extra-curricular activities. Give this Oxymoron jam a look-see as we head into the weekend tonight.
The Weeknd’s “Often” gets an official remix with additional rap verses from Schoolboy Q & Rick Ross. And to be honest, I think this beat and Weeknd’s vocals could do without the rap contrast. Both Schoolboy and Rozay didn’t mesh that well IMO so I’ll be sticking to the Kygo remix.
BONUS: The Weeknd also co-signed this new remix by Lito — more choppy and uptempo and a solid add to your rotation. I’d go with this one as well instead of the rap remix.
Last night, the Jimmy Kimmel Live stage belonged to upstart singer Tinashe as she brought along guest Schoolboy Q for a performance of “2 On” off her newly released album, Aquarius. Tinashe donned a sexy, shiny, throwback blue ensemble and provided a dance number with her crew of ladies to accompany the song.
To accompany the performance, Schoolboy Q provided double duty for JKL as he was next in line for the humorous bit where rappers’ mothers read the lyrics of their son’s most popular song. Here’s “Collard Greens”, as told by Schoolboy Q’s mother:
Schoolboy, Disclosure, Sam Smith. All 3 sounds are different and now they’re on one track together for this all-new remix of “Latch” below.
