Even though Schoolboy Q has already dropped videos for a whole bunch of Oxymoron cuts like Man Of The Year, Break The Bank, What They Want, and Studio, it’s nice to finally get a visual for one of the best and most affecting tracks on the LP. Hoover Street is a personal and narrative track about Q growing up in South Central L.A. dealing with drugs and gang life.
The video, directed by Yellow Nguyen and Moosa, features multiple child actors portraying Schoolboy as he ages. It’s a fairly literal take on the song, but it’s done well, and it’s really the only kind of video that would work with such a hard-hitting track. Watch it below.
