BJ the Chicago Kid Links Up With Schoolboy Q for ‘It’s True’ Video
BJ the Chicago Kid and Schoolboy Q pick up where they left off on the Grammy-nominated 'Studio' for their latest collaborative effort, 'It's True.' Originally a hidden track on BJ's 'The M.A.F.E. Project,' BJ decided to capitalize on the buzz and film a visual for the song after it become a fan favorite.
Giving his sultry vocals a rest and opting to drop a few bars himself, BJ sounds rather comfortable switching roles, weaving tales of dreams deferred in his native Chi-Town streets. He speaks on the untimely death of a gangbanging ball player in the first verse before reminiscing on a high school friend who passed away from a seizure. The Chicago kid paints a vivid picture of both accounts while getting his point across bluntly.
Schoolboy Q also delivers on his end, turning in a stellar 16 himself. He does this while frying up some poultry in a Harold's Chicken Shack and serving it out to the hood Nino Brown-style, making for a standout scene in the music video.
Be on the lookout for BJ's upcoming Motown Records debut, scheduled for release in 2015.
