Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Jay Rock Join ScHoolboy Q on the Black Hippy Remix of 'THat Part'
Black Hippy back.
The Top Dawg family reunites for a gritty remix of ScHoolboy Q's "THat Part." The version featuring Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock dropped via Soundcloud on the eve of Q's Blank Face LP release (July 7). The original featured Kanye West.
The West Coast is represented heavily as Rock spits first, repping Watts before Lamar waxes poetic about how society tried to hold him back because of his Compton roots: "And society kept my IQ vexed/ Deny me from an Ivy school/ Applyin' me to the street I slept/ I quietly had to hold this tool/ Reminding me of the block I repped." Soulo arrives by verse three flipping a 2Pac reference, rhyming, "Father forgive 'em for they know not who they see/ I got all eyes on me, call me 3Pac."
ScHoolboy rounds out the set with a new sixteen, where he claims he's "not votin', I'm a Crip, homie." He also name-drops Alton Sterling, the 37-year-old black man who was fatally shot by police officers in Baton Rouge, La. earlier this week. "When Alton Sterling gettin' killed for nothin'/ Two cowards in the car, they're just there to film/ Sayin' #BlackLivesMatter should've died with him," he raps.
