ScHoolboy Q's fifth studio album has finally arrived. CrasH Talk has been in the works for a while but due to two untimely deaths in the hip hop community, Q pushed back the release date twice. The rapper opened up about the deaths of Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle yesterday but in the booklet of CrasH Talk, the rapper penned emotional tributes to both rappers.

ScHoolboy Q previously spoke about how he didn't feel it was right to pay tribute to Mac Miller and Nipsey Hussle on social media. Instead, he shared two heartfelt messages to both artists in the liner notes of his new project.

"2 Mac. A  song or an interview won’t explain How mucH of a brutHa u was… love u and r last convo was all i needed, tHanks for everytHang," he wrote to Mac Miller.

He shared a more detailed thank you to Nipsey Hussle, praising the Crenshaw rapper for the contributions to L.A. and being an inspiration to the inner-city youth.

“2 NIPSEY HUSSLE. Neva THougHt tHis day would come. THanks for wHat you done for tHis city.
