EVERYONE KNOWS IT'S HARD TO LIVE UP TO THE HYPE WHEN IT THREATENS TO OVERWHELM A RELEASE—THAT IS, UNLESS YOU CAN BACK IT UP WITH A LANDMARK LP. LEARN A LESSON FROM SCHOOLBOY Q IN THIS VMAN.COM EXCLUSIVE EDITORIAL AND VIDEO QUESTIONAIRE
Listen to the full album below.
February 25th, 2014. One of the most anticipated hip-hop albums of the year, SchoolBoy Q's Oxymoron dropped at midnight last night, and it lives up to its high expectations. Profound lyrics that focus on the harsh realities of the streets of L.A. are injected with Q's signature hooks. With guest appearances by Raekewon, 2 Chainz, Tyler the Creator and of course his Black Hippy homie Kendrick Lamar, the album is destined to be a staple in hip hop history. We asked Q about his successes, fears and fashion in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video.
