Schoolboy Q has dropped the third installment to his video series for visuals off of of his freshly released album Blank Face.
Black Thought which is subtitled “Pt. 3″ joins “By Any Means” and “Tookie Knows II” to complete a short film centered around a pawn shop crime that was first previewed in the Blank Face trailer. Adding a cinematic view to the gang and inner city life, Q is seemingly caught between two alternate realities, one in which he is the successful rapper that he is today and the other facing consequences for what too many know as survival tactics.
The video, which was directed by Jack Begert and Dave Free of The Little Homies, opens with Q and two others on trial in a court room setting, then shifts to the prosecutor offering Q a plea bargain if he cooperates. Q begins to contemplate on how different things could have been, showcasing contrasting imagery on how truly different his life could have gone. From smoking in a cabana outside a prison to his mansion is filled with cells and inmates. Q really drives the point home about the reality of choices.
The most powerful scene features Q walking down in his circular driveway lined with barbed wire around its circular fountain taking his daughter out to the school bus, and in the next, he’s boarding the bus headed to county.
