ScHoolboy Q Calls on Kanye West for Feature on New Single

ScHoolboy Q "THat Part"

The “Studio” rapper and TDE signee calls on Kanye West for his newest release.

In what has been an eventful end of the week, in regards to music, ScHoolboy Q released “THat Part” yesterday. Though he hasn’t released an album in a couple of years, it looks as though Groovy Q, born Quincy Matthew Hanley, is taking the proverbial steps toward a new project release. He’s mentioned that he’s handed in his album to the label and is being mixed–meaning it can be released at any moment.

“THat Part” has a feel familiar to those who follow the Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) camp closely. The track has an eerie, mysterious beat much Kendrick Lamar had on his song “untitled 07 | 2014 – 2016” off of his surprise-release untitled unmasteredGroovy Q’s track even includes a repetitious bridge similar to that of Kendrick’s song. With “untitled 07,” Kendrick continuously repeats “levitate, levitate, levitate” to conclude his verses, whereas ScHoolboy Q uses the title of the song to repeat. The song also draws influence from “untitled 02 | 06.23.2016” where West says “Get top on the phone.”

Q’s last single, “Groovy Tony” was released last month and it looks as though he’s beginning to release music more frequently.
