Schoolboy Q at Prospect Park in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Ridiculously prolific west coast rapper E-40 just dropped a new track, "All My Niggas," and it features his typically rapid fast flow joined by two of the best of-the-moment rappers, Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q. Check out the new song (via Stereogum) below).
As discussed, Schoolboy Q will be in NYC this weekend to open for Odd Future at their big outdoor Williamsburg Park show on Saturday (7/20). That show also includes Meek Mill, who just played the Mac Miller, Chance the Rapper, The Internet, Vince Staples show in NJ (but not the Hammerstein one), Queens crew World's Fair, and legendary DJ Funkmaster Flex. Tickets for Saturday's show are still available. Rain or shine.
In related news, Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator will be going on a tour later this year with Kid Cudi and Big Sean. That tour doesn't include any NYC-area dates, but all three rappers will hit the area in October for Rock the Bells. 2-day passes for Rock the Bells are still available. Logic, who does not play Rock the Bells, is also on that tour.
All Tyler dates are listed, along with the E-40 song, below...
