Schoolboy Q has already made a pile of videos for songs from his 2014 breakout album Oxymoron, and the latest is for the growing-up-in-gangland reminiscence “Hoover Street.” The song is maybe the most poignant on the album, and it’s all about a young Q’s childhood encounters with crime and gang life. In the video, directed by Yellow Nguyen and Moosa, a couple of child actors portray the rapper as a kid. It’s a fairly obvious video treatment, but it’s done effectively, and the song is just great. Check it out below.
