Habits & Contradictions – Schoolboy Q

Being in the same group as Kendrick Lamar is a tough feat. But not if you’re Schoolboy Q. Down with Kendrick’s Top Dawg Entertainment, Schoolboy Q has proven himself through countless guest verses. Now as he drops his second digital album, Habits & Contradictions, there is no doubt Schoolboy Q can hang with the best of them. Juggling both the lighthearted and dark sided tales of a youth who grew up in Los Angeles, Q uses his unique flow and cadence to take listeners on a refreshingly original audio ride. Many self proclaimed “gangsta” rappers take themselves extremely seriously, but Q isn’t afraid to poke fun at himself or expose his flaws. This is especially evident on one of the albums best tracks, “My Hatin Joint”. He’s even joined by NY’s golden child, ASAP Rocky in a collaboration that may hail as one of 2012’s greatest. “Hands On The Wheel” samples Lizzie’s take on Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit Of Happiness” and sets the bar sky high. Luckily for us, Schoolboy Q doesn’t disappoint and delivers one of the best albums released this year.
