The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
A$AP Rocky and Schoolboy Q might be brand-new guys, but the rising rap talents are already making major moves. Rocky is busy putting together a compilation album with his A$AP crew, and Q just dropped his Habits & Contradictions LP, but with the chemistry the two upstarts exhibit on record, a collaborative album might be in order.
“We’re definitely talkin’ right now. We may give y’all a project, but it all has to be right,” Schoolboy told Mixtape Daily last week. “The timing has to be right. He’s busy right now, I’m busy right now, so I can’t give no promises when it’ll come or if it will come, but we definitely talkin’ about it.”
Rocky and Q first hooked up on “Brand New Guy,” an aggressive cut off the Harlem, New York, rapper’s Live.Love.A$AP mixtape. The pair traded bars, riffing on their respective street reputations and swagged-out lifestyles. Rocky returned the favor when he appeared on Schoolboy’s “Hands on the Wheel” last month.
During a New York concert earlier this month, Rock brought Q out to perform both songs, much to the crowd’s delight. “A$AP is the homey, man. We kinda live the same lifestyle,” the Cali rapper said. “I’m a little more gangsta than him, and he’s a little more swagger than me, but we kinda the same sh–, just different places.”
