ScHoolboy Q has announced plans to take his latest album on the road across North America for a brief run later this year.

On Wednesday (April 24), the Los Angeles rapper shared an 11-date itinerary for a trek branded “Blue Lips Weekends.” Based on this, the shows will presumably be centered on music from his latest album, Blue Lips.



The Top Dawg Entertainment concert series is set to commence in Toronto on July 18, following which it will stretch across the United States before wrapping up in Seattle on August 11.

Tickets go on sale this weekend and can be purchased here.

Soon after making the announcement, the Black Hippy rapper quoted a tweet by Complex and shared that he’s open to adding more dates to the upcoming run this summer.

“Only 11 sHows [two dua emojis],” he wrote. “MigHt add more weekends.”

Blue Lips marked ScHoolboy Q’s first full-length project in nearly five years, following 2019’s CrasH Talk.

According to HipHopDX‘s 4.5/5 review of the album, “The optimistic and self-assured transparency of the LP is fueled by a controlled dramatism that allows the West Coast barman to sustain the fervor that made him a key figure in the game throughout the 2010s while also giving him the space to look ahead with caution. Despite the absence of a defined theme, the project is held together by a patterned cohesion that distinguishes it from a compilation of singles bundled together and passed off as an album.

“An orderly union of sunshine, overcast, rain and starry skies, Blue Lips switches from bouncy to sedated to lit to pensive with a consistency that prompts an involuntary submission to its charmingly erratic rhythm. The rare instances wherein the production stagnates are compensated for by lyrical matter and vocal merit, with cameos coming from Lance Skiiiwalker, Jozzy, Devin Malik and Childish Major; and vice versa.”
