Back in December, Los Angeles rapper ScHoolboy Q confirmed a February 25th release date for his long-awaited major label debut, Oxymoron. Now, he’s revealed more details, including a tentative tracklist, the adorably menacing album artwork (above), and a brand new single, “Break the Bank”, produced by The Alchemist.
As always, Q can shift his personality at the turn of a beat, as evidenced by organic transitions from the more cerebral “Collard Greens” to the raucous “Banger”. With “Break the Bank”, Q gets rather manic and lethal, as he spits “Astro on my cap, this shot ain’t no phone app/ Chucks on my young heel, make sure that my sag ill/ Learn my set grill, trade in my big wheel” over Alchemist’s jarring blend of droning piano and old-school, truck-rattling bass.
