Top Dawg Entertainment’s ScHoolboy Q has reunited his Black Hippy crew for an unexpected remix to his hit “THat Part” single.
The revamped track premiered online an hour before Q dropped his new Blank Face album.
Jay Rock goes first, repping his Watts hometown and going “Uncle Luke on them hoes,” followed by his TDE brothers Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul. Q caps it all off with some fresh rhymes about this week’s police shootings that left two black men dead. (Rap-Up)

TDE’s Instagram page promoted the new single across social media.
Recently, Q talked about nearly quitting rap to care for his daughter.
“Yeah, to the point I almost quit,” Q said when asked if he felt like he missed key moments in his daughter’s life due to touring. “I almost quit for this [Blank Face] album, this period, after Oxymoron. Yeah. I was gone for a year and a half and before that I was gone for a year. The year before that I was gone for six months. You get what I’m saying? Because my daughter’s seven. Like the first two years I didn’t raise her because I was dirt broke. Then I only got two years in with her. My daughter always lived with me, I only got two years of raising her out of seven years. You get what I’m saying? I’m not about to be that rappers, that person, that puts his business, his money over his family. I go out and please everyone else making this money meanwhile my kid, my family is sitting around waiting for me to come back home.” (Hot 97)
Last month, Q revealed his hip-hop collaborations wish list.
“Working on an album can be stressful, it can be fun, it can be pain. It can be a lot of things because you go through all these different emotions while you’re rapping,” ScHoolboy said. “[Who do I want to work with?] Just more OGs. DJ Quik. I want to work with Too Short one day – I want to work with MC Lars. I want to work with Snoop. These are all people from my coasts I want to work with. Other than that, everything else, if it happens, if they fit, they fit. But those people, those are people I ‘have’ to work with.” (Hot 97)
