New York City, NY – It’s been rumored that Kendrick Lamar has landed production placement on ScHoolboy Q’s upcoming Blank Face LP cut “Overtime,” featuring Justine Skye and Miguel. Groovy Tony addresses the hearsay with Hot 97’s Nessa.
“That’s what everybody’s saying,” Q says. “I wasn’t there to see him produce it but I remember seeing Cardo produce it. I mean I think Kendrick got some background vocals. He’s done a lot of background vocals for me.”
The California native whose “Collard Greens” single marked his first Billboard hit, also explains why it’s taking forever for Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Kendrick and himself to hit the studio so fans can finally get that Black Hippy project.
“We don’t get nothing done when we’re all together,” he reveals. “That’s another reason why it would be hard for another Black Hippy album to happen because when we first started we was always in the studio together. So now, we so busy the only time we really kick it is in the studio. So, we wasting thousands of dollars in the studio every time. It probably took us forever just to do ‘Vice City’ because we couldn’t…when you don’t see your boys for so long and then when you finally get together it’s all jokes.”
Late last year, Jay Rock also addressed whether a Black Hippy would happen or not, obviously perturbed over the repeated question.
“Ain’t no Black Hippy album coming,” he says. “I’m tired of y’all keep asking me about Black Hippy. For real, everybody’s working right now. It’s up to the fans. It’s up to y’all. Y’all make the decisions. When the time right, you might get a Black Hippy album.”
