After taking the last few months to sprinkle a trail of hints about his new project, ScHoolboy Q has finally released the most concrete evidence yet that his highly-awaited album is coming.
Titled "Blank Face LP," Q's album is now available for pre-order on iTunes. The expected release date set at July 8, 2016 and the record's full tracklist can be found on the pre-order page.
Just by examining the tracklist, ScHoolboy's album should touch on a range of styles and vibes. The Los Angeles-based rapper will feature a plethora of West Coast figures on the album, from E-40 to Tha Dogg Pound. Q also includes several contemporary artists, including Vince Staples, Anderson .Paak, and Miguel -- all of whom, by the way, are also from California. The variety of guests and approaches should prove an interesting compliment to ScHoolboy's energetic yet unpredictable flow.
Fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from ScHoolboy. "Blank Face LP" will bring his studio album count to four and will be his first official project since the critically acclaimed "Oxymoron" in 2014.
The Top Dawg Entertainment artist has not, however, existed in hibernation since "Oxymoron." ScHoolboy Q popped up several times in 2016 in appearances that have only ramped the anticipation for "Blank Face LP." In April, Q dropped "Groovy Tony," a song that received positive feedback from fans. Then, a month later, Q released "tHat Part" featuring Kanye West, an official single for the album that brought even more excitement to "Blank Face LP." ScHoolboy has also kept busy with features, including an appearance on A$AP Ferg's "Let it Bang" in March and a spot on The Game's "Gang Bang Anyway" in October of 2015.
