Video: Schoolboy Q, "Nightmare on Figg St"

For the entirety of this video, Schoolboy Q is in what looks like a poorly lit, dark parking lot. At one point, a little kid shows up with his own little ominous baseball bat. You can't see his face at all. It's not the most engaging video ever made, but it doesn't need to be. Any given Schoolboy Q song features a whirlwind of vocal twists, ragged adlibs, and off the cuff morbid humor. "Nightmare on Figg St" has all that, as well as—I think—a creative, much darker take on that signature noise from Quincy Jones' "Summer in the City" that ended up on The Pharcyde's "Passing Me By.”
