“The fact that people actually think that I would actually use that as my album covers is funny. So I just actually trolled the people because soon as I put it up on my Twitter, everyone just said ‘Schoolboy Q’s album cover, Schoolboy Q’s artwork,’ but they defeated the purpose of what I was doing. I have a concept behind it. ... I had a series of covers I was gonna put out. People are so quick to jump on things. Like, it was only out for two minutes. They didn't even give me a chance to post my next picture. I was literally getting ready to post my next picture and like four websites picked up on it."
Here's the official Blank Face LP album art:
Original story (11 a.m.): More than two years after his major label debut, Oxymoron, Schoolboy Q's Blank Face LP is set to drop on July 8. It's a great album title, wide open to interpretation, and it's got a viscerally disturbing cover: the Crying Jordan meme with Jordan's face washed out, as if a sculptor went a little too far.
Now the record's got its own deluxe edition cover, this one featuring Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump looking like he just got back from a trip to Silent Hill:

The Blank Face LP features "Groovy Tony" and the Kanye West–featuring "THat Part," which just got a video. We're hyped to see who else the L.A. rapper gets on the record, particularly from the Top Dawg family. Kendrick would be great, but SZA would be genius.
