The Nightmare on Figg St. video is taking the Web by storm. Watch ScHoolboy Q's new video below.
ScHoolboy Q has hit the ground running in his rap career. As a key member of Kendrick Lamar's Black Hippy crew, he has risen to prominence, recently earning an 8.4 review and Best New Music label for his smash album.
Featuring hitmaker Alchemist on one of the beats, and plenty of dark allusions and a filthy sound, the album is one of the more exciting to hit this year, and the buzz about the Nightmare on Figg St. single hit a fever pitch in the day's leading up to its release.
Bringing it back to 90s-style boom-kick beats and crack raps, he smokes pot in the dark video featuring little more than dingy street scenes reminiscent of early Wu-Tang Clan videos.
The 25-year-old L.A. rapper has said rapping is something he was born to do. He graduated from hardscrabble West Crenshaw High School and was a member of the Hoover Street Crips in his youth. He earned cred off his mixtapes and has since broken into the mainstream with his 2011 album Setbacks and now Habits & Contradictions.
