ScHoolboy Q is no stranger to commenting on the state of hip-hop. He often uses his Twitter account to talk about his excitement for upcoming projects. He did so earlier this year for Vince Staples' recently released Dark Times before the project had even been announced. Now he's once again expressing excitement, this time for the newly announced DJ Mustard project. The album is called Faith Of A Mustard Seed and doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's expected later this summer.

While sharing his excitement for the newly announced album Q also shouted out the entire Los Angeles hip hop scene. "Heard it. sH*t go dumb. LA bout to do it again… LA up tHis year" his tweet reads. While it is specifically referencing the Mustard album announcement it's quote tweeting, there may be even more big LA artists gearing up to drop this year. Q's label Top Dawg Entertainment is LA based and promised earlier this year that nearly everyone on their roster would be dropping new projects. That's already come to fruition with Q, SiR, and Isaiah Rashad leading the way with their newest records. Check out his tweet about the state of LA rap in 2024 below.
