ScHoolboy Q wrapped up his Blank Face tour last week in the UK following half a year on the road to promote his LP

Highlight Nation had the opportunity to see the Groovy Gangsta in Brixton, London’s O2 Academy. This is the third time we’ve seen Q but it by far has to be his most energetic performance.

The last time that Q toured Europe was for his Oxymoron tour, which was a period that Q was still on the lean, piled on the pounds and looked exhausted during his media appearances. The LA rapper has claimed that he is now lean free and has lost a significant amount of weight. The results of this change are abundant in his stage presence.

Q stormed the stage with Oxymoron’s intros track, Gangsta to get the crowd pumped and laid banger after banger with classics in Hands On The Wheel, Collard Greens, Yay Yay and There He Go following. It wasn’t until he pulled out the emotional, Blessed, where the crowd finally were able to catch a breather and reflect. Big Groove didn’t forget about ladies as smooth grooves, Studio and Overtime followed.

The rave was back on as Q introduced his Blank Face LP flagships in JoHn Muir, Dope Dealer, Groovy Tony and By Any Means. The party momentum was furthered even more as Q reminded us that he was Man Of The Year for another annum with his unmatched flow and charisma.

The Black Hippy man took a moment to pay tribute to one of his comrades, Kendrick Lamar with a verse on Alright. Maad City was also covered, a track that blew up with help from Q’s “Yawk Yawk Yawk” ad libs.

THat Part seemingly was set to close the show as the crowd accepted that “Beggars can’t be choosers, bitch this ain’t Chipotle”. Yet Q gave us an encore to tell the crowd that it was a Hell Of A Night.

TDE always take their projects seriously and don’t do things for the sake of it. From album concepts, to cover set to promotional tours, there’s always consistency throughout and this gig was the most fitting way to sign off the year for Blank Face.
