(AllHipHop News) Schoolboy Q recently sat down with Montreality for a new interview.
The Top Dawg Entertainment representative covered several topics including the potential compilation project with his fellow Black Hippy members Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock.
“Y’all been asking that question for like four years,” responded Q when asked about Black Hippy. “I don’t know man. I can’t say that.”
While Schoolboy was uncertain about the fate of a highly anticipated BH effort, he is in the process of creating a follow-up to his own Blank Face LP album.
That individual work plays a part in why the Black Hippy project has yet to come to fruition.
“People don’t understand when you’re working on an album and you’re getting into a groove, it’s hard to stop that groove, that zone you’re in, and that vision you got, to jump into a whole new thing,” stated Q.
The Los Angeles rhymer went on to explain that TDE artists’ tendency to focus on putting together conceptual solo projects makes it difficult for the foursome to come together for a full body of work.
He added, “I can’t say that we’ll be in the studio getting a Black Hippy album ready. No matter how much [TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith] wants it to happen, no matter how much [TDE Co-President Dave Free] and the fans want it to happen – the chances of us getting into the studio together working on Black Hippy is slim because it’s just too much going on.”
Schoolboy Q made it clear he is open to doing a BH album, but they have to find the time to make it happen.
“We’re not just going to go into the studio and finish an album in a month,” expressed the “THat Part” rhymer. “Maybe some of these other rappers do their music like that, but we don’t do our music like that.”
