Q also spoke with Rolling Stone about his Blank Face LP. The Los Angeles native revealed to the publication that he created “depressed rap” during the making of the original records for his most recent project.
“I switched the whole album up as I got into myself and I got comfortable again,” said Schoolboy. “I told myself, stop crying like a little b-tch and do what you love to do.”
He added, “It was like a confession thing. I didn’t want people to hear me like that; that depression doesn’t last. A few months, and then it was over. Y’all are never hearing them records.”
Blank Face LP is predicted to sell between 50,000 to 55,000 copies in its first week with 63,000 to 70,000 in sales plus streaming units.
While Q’s set is on pace to being the best-seller of the week, the album equivalent units total is likely not enough to prevent Drake’s Views from scoring its 10th nonconsecutive week at #1 on the SPS chart.
