According to multiple reports from attendees at the Wednesday night New York City listening party for his new album Blank Face, ScHoolboy Q has been using the event to tell some harsh truths about one of the album's tracks.

Several people at the listening party have reported that Q had less-than-stellar words about "Overtime," his collaboration with Miguel and Justine Skye. He said that it was a "bootleg" version of his 2014 song "Studio," a collaboration with BJ the Chicago Kid, and stated that his record label "made me" put it on his album.

"It's a bootleg ass studio song. They made me put it on the album." - ScHoolboy Q on "Overtime" ft. Miguel and Justine Skye #BlankFaceLP

"Overtime" w/ @Miguel & @JustineSkye is in the same realm as "Studio."

"They made me put this on the album," Q said. #BlankFaceLP

Q seemed to acknowledge that, despite his feelings, the label perhaps ended up making the correct call.

The listening party was hosted by Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg. It was shared on Snapchat by Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith.
