(Schoolboy Q on joint album with A$AP Rocky)
By Rob Markman
A$AP Rocky is currently on tour promoting his recent mixtape Live.Love.A$AP and Schoolboy Q is doing the same for his new album Habits & Contradictions but the two rappers are already considering collaboration on a joint project. “We’re definitely talkin’ right now. We may give y’all a project, but it all has to be right,” Schoolboy told Mixtape Daily last week.
“The timing has to be right. He’s busy right now, I’m busy right now, so I can’t give no promises when it’ll come or if it will come, but we definitely talkin’ about it.”
Rocky and Q first hooked up on “Brand New Guy,” an aggressive cut off the Harlem, New York, rapper’s Live.Love.A$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.”
