Vince Staples has some good news for fans of Schoolboy Q.

On Thursday, the "Norf Norf" rapper took to X, the platform previously known as Twitter, to shed some light on Q's upcoming sixth studio album, "Blue Lips," which is set to be released on March 1.

Responding to a fan who asked him whether he appears on the album, Vince wrote: “No but I heard it and hit several dance moves it’s his best yet.”

Q has already released three singles from "Blue Lips."

He dropped both "Blueslides" and "Back n Love," as well as their music videos, via YouTube at the start of the month.

On Thursday, the Tog Dawg Entertainment rapper then released the third single, "Yeern 101," and its accompanying visuals.

On "Yeern 101," which is the first track 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.

Vince is having a big month of his own.

His new show "The Vince Staples Show" dropped on Netflix this week and has been met with rave reviews from both fans and the rapper's musical peers.

The show stars Vince as himself and “explores his unpredictable life over the course of five satirical tales” set in his hometown of Long Beach, California, according to a synopsis.

In a post on X on Friday, Grammy Award-winner Killer Mike described the show as "genius."

"Nothin'" rapper N.O.R.E. also shared his thoughts on the show in an X post, writing: "Vince staples got the best show on earth!!!"
