Watch ScHoolboy Q’s Short Film For “Tookie Knows Part II”

ScHoolboy Q‘s sophomore album, Blank Face LP, will be out next Friday, and the hype for it has exponentially increased over the last couple of weeks. With “THat Part” becoming a song of the summer candidate, and cryptic trailers being circulated once a week, July 8 can’t get here soon enough.

As if his fan base isn’t impatient enough, ScHoolboy Q has decided to further tease BFLP today with the release of a short film/music video for “Tookie Knows Part 2,” a previously unreleased song off the upcoming album.

“Tookie Knows Part 2” is the sequel to Q’s Habits ‘N’ Contradictions cut, “Tookie Knows,” a haunting song that’s equal parts rapped verse and inaudible, neck hair-raising growls. For his second act, Q brought a few of the homies along–he’s joined by Traffic and TF on the song–for a jailhouse cypher, the bittersweet byproduct of their recent armed robbery ventures.

The quasi-music video for the song is only 30% of what comprises this short film, however. Some great cinematic work is on display almost immediately during a charged opening scene featuring Q and his cohorts robbing a pawn store–and shooting one of its staff members.

Watch the full thing above, and get ready for the return of Groovy Q, 8 days away.
