Schoolboy Q And YG Push Back The Music They Planned To Release This Week
The tragic passing of Nipsey Hussle has affected so many over the past few days, from people who never met the rapper to those who knew him for his entire life. It’s obvious how huge of an impact he has on everyone around him, so it’s only right his friends in the hip-hop community pay their respects and delay any music they were set to release this week.
YG took to Twitter on Wednesday night to announce that he planned on delivering a surprise album next Friday, but he now feels like it’s necessary to wait so that he has more time to mourn the loss of his “brother from the other color.”
“I was dropping a Surprise album April 12th. But man. Now that we gotta deal with Big bro goin to heaven I will not drop the album this month,” the rapper explained.
YG isn’t the only Los Angeles rhymer taking some time to reflect before dropping some new music–Schoolboy Q is doing exactly the same thing, and unfortunately, this is all too familiar territory for the Hoover Street native.
After previously stating that he would grieve the loss of Nipsey privately following some fan inquiries about an in memoriam post, ScHoolboy Q then posted a series of video clips on his Instagram story explaining the current state of his music.That’s when he announced that he was also pushing back his music’s planned release date, referring to his next single “CHopstix” featuring Travis Scott, which he’s been teasing for a while now.
“Y’all got the game f**ked up if you thnk I’m trying to put out music tomorrow,” Q said on his IG story. “I’m not putting out no f**kin’ music tomorrow. It’s not cool. I’m not wit it. Thank you to iHeartRadio for understanding that…To the blogs that posted it all earlier before we even posted it…I’m not putting nothing out this week. Like, no. Nobody should be putting out nothing this week.”
Schoolboy Q had just started getting ready to release his album again after first delaying it following the death of his good friend Mac Miller, which makes this situation even more upsetting for the rapper.
