ScHoolboy Q

ScHoolboy Q has been making waves with his latest album, Blue Lips, and it’s clear why fans have been buzzing. The standout track “Blueslides” is particularly intriguing, as it seems to take aim at a controversial figure in the music industry—most notably, Kanye West.

While Q hasn’t explicitly named names, speculation is rife that he’s referring to Kanye West as the artist who’s been “unfairly” canceled. Reddit user u/TheMisiak claims that Q gave it away during a live performance of the track, saying, “When Q performed ‘Blueslides,’ he didn’t censor himself like he did on the track itself. Just thought it was interesting that he waited until the tour to reveal who he was referencing.”

Fivio Foreign

Fivio Foreign is firing back after Pop Smoke’s brother, Obasi Jackson, called him out for not following the late rapper on Instagram. In a video rant, Jackson criticized Fivio for not paying tribute to Pop Smoke, claiming, “Yo, I just woke up, but that is actually true. I just looked at his following; he’s not following Pop or Mike Dee. F*** Mike Dee. But Pop? Word? Fivio?! Yo, we gotta do something about this fake s***, gang.”

Fivio Foreign was quick to respond, labeling Jackson a “weirdo” and pointing out that Pop Smoke himself didn’t follow Jackson when he was alive. “That n**** is a weirdo.
