Schoolboy Q drops first 2 singles from new album, "Blue Lips"

Schoolboy has dropped the first two singles from his upcoming sixth studio album, "Blue Lips."

The Top Dawg Entertainment rapper released both "Blueslides" and "Back n Love," which features producer Devin Malik, on Tuesday.

Q also dropped the videos for the two songs on the same day.

On the jazz-infused "Blueslides," Q addresses his five-year absence from music, rapping about his personal struggles, including a battle with depression.

In one line, he also appears to reference the 2018 death of his close friend Mac Miller.

"I lost a homeboy to drugs man I ain't tryna go backwards," Q raps.

On the grimier "Back n Love," Q raps triumphantly about his return to rap the lack of competition in the game.

"Grown man, I ain't rockin' no purse / On Crip, boy, you need church," he raps.

The video switches between home video footage of Q as a youngster and the now 37-year-old smoking and dancing around a man holding a sign that reads "Blue Lips."

"Blue Lips. MarcH 1st," he wrote on Instagram alongside a teaser trailer for the album, which gave fans a sneak preview of the tracklist.

"Blue Lips" will be Q's first studio album since 2019's "Crash Talk."
