Heady new visuals for “Druggys WitH Hoes Again” off Q’s Habits & Contradictions mixtape. Extra pills.
Everyone’s favorite VJ, radio host, and beanie-rocker Sway, recently sat down with Black Hippy’s ScHoolboy Q at MTV studio’s to discuss Q’s relationship with his Harlem, New York brethren A$AP Rocky.
In 2011, Q and Rocky linked up in the studio to drop two bangers on us, first with “Brand New Guy” off of Rocky’s Live.Love.A$AP mixtape, followed by “Hands on the Wheel” off Q’s Habits & Contradictions LP.
