Last night in New York City, TDE's ScHoolboy Q held a listening party for his much anticipated new album The Blank Face LP:
Throughout the event, Q provided commentary about the records that he was previewing, including some interesting remarks about the song "Overtime," which features Miguel and Justine Skye.
DJBooth was in attendance, and first tweeted out the comments last night:
How EKKSTACY Beat Writer’s Block to Make His Best Album
Pop anti-hero EKKSTACY finds his aggressive voice on his new album, 'misery.' He breaks down his journey through writer's block for Audiomack World.
Q went on to call the record a "bootleg ass" version of his 2014 song "Studio," but he also admitted that the label was wise to help create and keep the track on the final version of the album despite his apprehensions about including a manufactured radio record on his album.
It's prudent to note that "Overtime" not only features Miguel but, as first reported by DJBooth, the song also sees Kendrick Lamar receiving his first production credit alongside co-producer Cardo. For his part, Cardo thinks "Overtime" is going to be quite well received by the fairer sex.
Given that the record marks Kendrick's first officially credited time behind the boards, it's safe to assume both TDE and ScHoolboy Q are holding the track in high regard. Let's just hope Kendrick didn't hear Q's comments about "Overtime" or he might end up doing this to Q:
