Believe it or not, it’s been nearly three long years since ScHoolboy Q unleashed his masterful, end-of-year list-topping album Blank Face LP. The California rapper intended to drop his next album late last year, but chose to delay plans following the death of close friend and colleague Mac Miller.
“With my n*gga gone right now, I just don’t feel right putting out an album,” ScHoolboy Q said back in September. “As y’all can tell, I’m not my real self right now. I shouldn’t even be here right now.”
“I’ma go back, and I’ma figure out when I’ma put this f*cking album out, because y’all are going to get this album,” added the MC. “I promise that.”
Today, Q has made good on his word, and the wait for new music is finally over with the release of “Numb Numb Juice”. Take a listen below.
Update: The official music video for “Numb Numb Juice” has been revealed. Directed by longtime TDE collaborator Dave Free and Jack Begert, it features a cameo from Tyler the Creator, as well as references to 1998’s Belly starring DMX and Nas and Elon Musk’s infamous pot-smoking podcast with Joe Rogan.
The new offering follows Q’s collaborations with Kamaiyah (“Addicted to Ballin'”) and Future (“Code of Honor”). He also contributed to the Black Panther soundtrack and performed as part of TDE’s Championship Tour alongside Kendrick Lamar and SZA.
