ScHoolboy Q Details Playing Blue Lips For Jay Z: 'He Was Actually Listening'

Schoolboy Q recently shared his experience of playing his new album, "Blue Lips," for Jay-Z, highlighting the significance of having the music mogul actually listen to his work. During an interview on Podcast P, set to air on March 29, 2024, Schoolboy Q expressed his excitement and validation in knowing that Jay-Z was genuinely engaged with the album.

He recounted playing music for other legends like Snoop Dogg, Nas, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West, but noted that Jay-Z was a particularly special audience he had hoped to reach. The interaction began with Schoolboy Q reaching out through X (formerly Twitter), a move he described as throwing out bait in hopes that Jay-Z would respond.

To his surprise, Jay-Z did, leading to a meeting where they discussed the album in detail. Schoolboy Q was struck by the reality of sitting down with Jay-Z, someone he had met before but continued to hold in high esteem.

This encounter was a significant moment for Schoolboy Q, not just for the personal achievement of having Jay-Z listen to his work, but also for the feedback and recognition from one of hip-hop's most influential figures.
