Q season has begun. One of Top Dawg Entertainment’s prized artists, ScHoolboy Q, has returned with his first original single in years. The track is titled “Soccer Dad,” and marks a triumphant return for the venerated rapper.
Those who follow ScHoolboy Q know that this track title is a true reference to his current lifestyle. While in his past he would rap about gang-banging, he’s now focused on watching his daughter grow up and being as happy as he could be. He recently said in an interview that playing golf helped treat his depression.
Staying true to his art form, “Soccer Dad” doesn’t sound like anybody else. Large brass accompanies Q’s confident sonic stature as he raps about how he’s graduated from the ordinary lifestyle of a rapper: “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, hm.”
Back in 2021, ScHoolboy Q mentioned he was sitting on a complete album. We hope this is the beginning of the rollout.
