L.A. native ScHoolboy Q is inarguably on fire right now. Just a couple of years ago, he was winning Best New Artist at the BET Awards. Fast forward to 2016. He just released his new LP "Blank Face," which boasts a perfect storm of innovative rhymes, sick beats and perfect production. Add in the fact that many of music's biggest names such as Kanye West, Jadakiss, Miguel and Tha Dogg Pound lend their voices to it, and ScHoolboy Q hits a home run with this record.
As for ScHoolboy Q's live performance...it's like the best party you've ever attended. Not only does he bring so much energy to the stage, the crowd gives it right back to him. The new album only dropped a couple of weeks ago, yet the whole audience was yelling his lyrics back at him passionately.
Lastly, I've always maintained you can tell alot about an artist by the way he interacts with his fans. And ScHoolboy Q excels in this category. In spite of getting his wisdom teeth recently removed, he didn't just play the necessary two songs for television and leave. He stayed and continued to perform for the die-hard fans that had waited in the heat all afternoon to see him. And when he finished, he hopped off stage and signed hats, sweatshirts, anything he was handed. He even took selfies, much to the screaming fans' delight.
ScHoolboy Q has longevity, and it's well-deserved.
