ScHoolboy Q Continues His Short Film Narrative With the Timely “Black THougHts” Video

Directed by Dave Free (of the Little Homies) and Jack Begert, ScHoolboy Q‘s short film coinciding with his new album “Blank Face” is genuinely movie quality. Taking viewers through the reality of the rhymes he spews out with passion, ScHoolboy Q’s latest video release is for the track “Black Thoughts,” a timely account of race relations.

From a jail cell to the court room, Q doesn’t move a muscle when asked to testify against his friends for the crime they committed in part 2 of the series. Back to Q’s home he interacts with his daughter before walking her out to the school bus, the narrative flips as Q’s outfit transforms back to a prison jumpsuit and he gets on the bus back to jail.

Watch above and piece carefully through the lyrics below provided by Genius, Q cleared up the line “all lives matter, both sides” by saying it pertained to bloods and crips putting aside their differences.
