Schoolboy Q is reminding fans that he is still one of the best rappers in the game. Returning to the music scene after his Crash Talk album in 2019, the South Central native has officially released a new single titled “Soccer Dad“. It is not certain whether or not he has plans on releasing his sixth studio album anytime soon, but until then this release is a breath of fresh air.
In the opening moments of “Soccer Dad” you will hear a repeating drum cadence that goes right into Q’s impressive flow. He is quick to remind the world that his TDE Black Hippy crew (Kendrick Lamar, Jayrock, Ab-Soul & Schoolboy) created a lane for the new aged rapper to thrive and shine, with hardcore lyracism. His grungy, confident vocals glide over the uptempo beat, like a surfboard riding a wave. As he is known for being a gangster rapper, it is refreshing to see him take a different approach on this release, yet still staying true to his original, and influential sound.
The father of two takes pride in his dad duties hence the name of his latest release. You will hear Schoolboy candidly mentioning how he is a soccer dad and his life is only getting better. Some lyrics that coincide with the above statement include “I am really him, the soccer dad, my real life too wavy, while I cheer the stands, you little rappers go and wipe your mouth and go pull up your pants”. It is clear that his songwriting abilities and lethal tongue has not slowed down one bit. He is making it clear that he is not scared to go toe to toe with anyone, and him being a “Soccer Dad” has not changed who he is as an artist.
Schoolboy Q has created yet another timeless record for the world to indulge in. Press play below to stream his new single “Soccer Dad”.
