Spinner of musical masterpieces, this poetic gangster, black hippy and conceptual thug has spat many lines easily thought to be weaved from the same proverbial loom used by greats such as Easy E and Mystikal. Rapping way beyond his years, 27 year old Quincy Matthew Haley speaks with flow that reminds me of times before he and his tenure in the game. Though still new, SchoolBoy Q has hit the game hard and there’s no doubt that he will do it again with his upcoming album, OxyMoron, with Interscope records. With hits such as “Yay Yay,” “Collard Greens” and “Blessed,” he has shown us that his serendipitous success knows no bounds with lines “My pistol drawn her boyfriend got me paranoid/ ni**a try to sneak up in me then I’m making noise/ but what I failed to understand/I’m the mothaf**king man/ ran into him he’s a fan – Got Damn”
His debut album (TDE) Setbacks was released as a digital download. It reached #12 on US Billboard Top Rap Albums. Habits &Contradictions released on Jan 14, 2012 exclusively on iTunes, set the curve and truly brought the spotlight to Q. With radio hits, “Hands on the Wheel,” “Break the Bank” and “Man of the Year,” many are truly awaiting the debut of Oxymoron and the greatness it will behold.
“As the days grow slim, anticipation gains weight.”
