Watch Schoolboy Q’s Crew Hold Up Pawn Shop in ‘Tookie Knows II’

MC raps ‘Blank Face’ track from behind bars after heist

In Schoolboy Q‘s latest clip, shortly after sticking up a pawn shop and going on a spending spree, the rapper and his accomplices end up in jail. The cell blocks provide the setting for a bracing series of verses from Schoolboy Q, Traffic and TF.  

The rappers take turns re-asserting their commitment to the streets. Traffic delivers his lines in a hoarse, scraping tone: “I’m holdin’ the heat, he’s watchin’ the block  I’m watchin’ for cops, I’m holdin’ these rocks/ Fiends keep comin’, this shit don’t stop.”

Last week, Schoolboy Q’s unveiled the video for “By Any Means,” the first installment in a short film. “Tookie Knows II” is the second part. At the end of the clip, Schoolboy Q is thrown into a police van with other prisoners. Then the screen goes dark and promises more to come: “to be continued.”

“Tookie Knows II” is slated to appear on Schoolboy Q’s forthcoming Blank Face LP. The album includes rapping from Kanye West, Jadakiss, and E-40 along with production from the likes of Metro Boomin and Alchemist. Blank Face hits shelves July 8th.
