Watch Schoolboy Q’s Crew Smoke, Run Red Lights in New Video

Nine-minute clip for hard-hitting “By Any Means” features weed, police chases

Schoolboy Q‘s crew smokes weed, jokes around and cruises through the streets of Los Angeles in the rapper’s sprawling video for “By Any Means,” a track from his upcoming Blank Face LP. The clip finds Schoolboy’s friends running red lights, outrunning police and scoping out jewelry at a pawn shop. 

Schoolboy alternates between nimble verses and crooning on the track, anchored by brooding synths and snapping programmed drums. “I’ma rob that store/ I’ma kick down doors/ I’ma shoot my gun/ I’ma heal my soul,” he raps on the cut, as the clip foreshadows a potential robbery plot. The clip, dubbed “Part 1,” ends with an ominous “to be continued” cliffhanger, as a car pulls up next to the pawn shop at night.

“By Any Means” follows Schoolboy singles “THat Part” featuring Kanye West – which he also promoted with a surreal video – and “Groovy Tony.” Blank Face, which follows 2014’s Oxymoron, is out July 8th via Top Dawg Entertainment.
