#TBT: Early ScHoolboy Q
ScHoolboy Q benefited early in his career from his association with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul. The fearsome foursome known as Biack Hippy cultivated a supportive yet competitive atmosphere, not unlike that of sports team (possibly the Spurs), that pushed Q, the last member to join, to great heights. Look where he is now; his new album Blank Face LP is one of the best albums of the year to date.
