Schoolboy Q won't be retiring from rap anytime soon.

On Thursday, the Tog Dawg Entertainment rapper, who turned 37 in October, hit back at a fan on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, who suggested that he is nearing the end of his career.

“@ScHoolboyQ may be releasing his best project so late in his career,” the fan wrote, referring to Q's upcoming sixth studio album, "Blue Lips," from which he's already released three tracks.

Responding to the fan, Q wrote: “Late? Told y’all on blank face I’m goin' out like B.B. King."

"I’m rapping til I’m 80 on God," he added.

Blues legend King, best known for his classic track "Stand by Me," released his final studio album, "One Kind Favor," in 2008 when he was 83.

He died seven years later.

In an Instagram post, the "Man of the Year" rapper said the album, his first since 2019's "Crash Talk," will be released on March 1.

Q released the project's first two singles, "Blueslides" and "Back n Love," and their videos the following week via YouTube.

On Thursday, Q dropped the third single, "Yeern 101," and its accompanying visuals.

On the Cardo-produced track, which is the first from "Blue Lips" to be made available on streaming platforms, Q raps about his Los Angeles upbringing and his current status in the rap game.

"Got a porch light skin and the ceilin' got peeled / I was twenty plus young when this shit got real

/ Young black boy runnin', got me out of that field / Made a livin' off game, you should get it on film," he raps.
