ScHoolboy Q is the next TDE artist scheduled to release a full-length album, but according to the artist himself, he isn't ready to deliver one—yet.

"With my nigga gone right now, I just don't feel right putting out an album," Q told a packed house at House of Vans' Share The Stage event in Chicago this past Friday, citing the recent death of his close personal friend Mac Miller. "I'm up here, y'all making shit easier for me right now. I'm smiling and shit, [but] as you can tell, I'm not my real self right now."

On September 7, Mac Miller was found dead in his San Fernando Valley home of an apparent drug overdose. He was 26. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office has said it will delay any final pronouncement on the official cause of death until toxicology tests are completed.

Given the closeness of his relationship with Mac Miller, Q's decision to delay the release of his next album, the follow-up to 2016's GRAMMY-nominated Blank Face LP, isn't the least bit surprising. What is somewhat surprising, however, is Q's revelation that, over the past 24 months, he's recorded multiple albums.

"Y'all know I only drop every two years right? So in the process of dropping every two years, I ended up making four albums," Q said.

Here's a brief clip of Q speaking to the crowd:
