On April 26, Schoolboy Q returns in all of his high voiced, manic rapping splendor. His new album Crash Talk has been announced to hit streaming services then. The rapper released a brief, head-scratching trailer confirming that finally, after nearly three years, and a few recent singles, reveals that he’s back and ready for more.
The 40-second trailer is made of two kinds of faces. The first is a bag head, or a person (presumably Schoolboy Q) with a brown paper bag with eye cutouts staring out of the dark room. It’s disorientating. The second kind of face is Schoolboy Q’s grizzled moniker. Flashing lights and rapidly switching faces – first from bagged to Q, then Q to bagged – make it an unsettling visual. With Q’s psychotic rapping playing through the brief clip, it heightens the tension in the air. Like driving before colliding. A crash that’s about to happen. It’s then revealed that Crash Test is coming.
Check out the short trailer up above.
