Blank Face LP is the fourth studio album by American hip hop recording artist Schoolboy Q. It was released on July 8, 2016, by Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), in conjunction with Interscope Records. The album serves as his second release under a major record label to music retailers, following 2014's Oxymoron.

The album features guest appearances from several prominent artists, such as Kanye West, Jadakiss, Tha Dogg Pound and Miguel, among others. The production was handled by various high-profile record producers, including Swizz Beatz, Metro Boomin and Southside, as well as frequent collaborators Nez & Rio, The Alchemist, DJ Dahi and members of TDE in-house production team, Digi+Phonics.

Blank Face LP was preceded by a series of short films, which also served as respective corresponding music videos. To further promote the album Schoolboy Q embarked on a concert tour called the Groovy Tony Pit Stops. The album was supported by two singles, "Groovy Tony" and "THat Part", the latter of which became Schoolboy Q's second solo Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Blank Face LP received widespread acclaim from critics, and charted at number two on the Billboard 200. – Wiki

“Blank Face LP is a collection of catchy, urgent gangsta rap songs that show the South Central native at his charismatic best, gallows humor and tough talk failing to obscure a humane core.” – Pitchfork

“At a late June listening party, Q said Blank Face LP is what he would have made early in his career if he had more resources. He hasn’t forgotten his roots as a Hoover Gang Crip, and the memories are stark and clear. While Oxymoron balanced chutzpah and remorse with the maturity of a gang banger who has made it out, Blank Face LP sees Q almost fully immersing himself into his old world, brazen and remorseless. He rarely tells full linear stories, instead opting for a gallery of vivid snapshots, using his seesawing delivery and scornful singing to develop the images…

Blank Face LP gets more interesting when Q experiments with jazz and blues-flavored sounds that wouldn’t be out of place on Kendrick’s Butterfly. On songs like the title track, he lets Anderson .Paak takes the lead for two of his own verses, while Q’s signature off-kilter flow stands tall among bass guitar plucks and winding pianos. The brilliant “Kno Ya Wrong” pays off twice, as Q effortlessly alternates between woozy rhyming and bluesy crooning to sink his teeth into a pair of melodic instrumentals by Alchemist and J.LBS.” – Hip Hop DX
