CrasH Talk is nearly upon us, with ScHoolboy Q having officially dropped off the third single and title track "CrasH," which features a reimagining of Royce Da 5'9" and DJ Premier's legendary "Boom." With the album set to drop in two days, GQ has linked up with ScHoolboy for a reflective feature on Golf and music, two of the rapper's biggest passions. “I had all these people telling me, ‘Why are you playing golf!? Why you playing a lame-ass sport? You a loser!’" says Q, holding it down for the unsung game. “But like I tell everyone, Bruh: Golf is life."

He proceeds to open up about the long and difficult road from Blank Face to CrasH Talk, which found him facing unpredictable creative difficulties. The article claims that Q's attempts at a Blank Face followup culminated in three complete albums, two of which were discarded as being "trash." The other, which seemed to have passed Q's initial tests, was sent back to the drawing board at the suggestion of Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock.  

Despite finding himself in a bit of a rut, Q has since bounced back with his forthcoming effort, fuelled in part by the discovery of an engaging ritual: boxing, intermittent fasting, and morning sessions of "Call Of Duty." Are you excited to hear the fruits of his labor? CrasH Talk arrives on Friday - will you be listening in?
