During an appearance on The Tonight Show last month, ScHoolboy Q previewed a new Travis Scott collaboration called “CHopstick”. Now, the studio version of the track has been released in full.
As Pitchfork points out, ScHoolboy Q’s Black Hippy collaborator, Kendrick Lamar, is listed in the song’s credits as a composer and lyricist.
Update — Wednesday, April 10th: The new music video for “CHopstix” has been revealed. Directed by Nabil (Frank Ocean, Kanye West), the black-and-white clip follows Q, dressed in formal attire, as he dances onstage with a troupe of ballerinas. Scott, meanwhile, acts as conductor for a group of string players.
ScHoolboy Q originally intended to drop “CHopstick” last week, but delayed its release in light of Nipsey Hussle’s tragic death. He told fans in an Instagram Story, “Nobody should be putting nothing out this week. I’m not putting out music tomorrow — it’s not cool.”
CHopstick” comes on the heels of Q’s “Numb Numb Juice”, which was released last month. Presumambly, both tracks appear on the Black Hippy rapper’s long-awaited Blank Face LP follow-up, which is expected later this year.
