ScHoolboy Q-Yay Yay

Q’s gearing up for that Oxymoron release this year and it looks like the promotional run is about to begin, with this first release from the TDE representative’s debut LP.

Generally, Q has two styles: contemplative or speaker-rattling. This falls firmly in the latter, and if you’re desperate for a point of reference, let’s just say it’s more There He Go than Blessed. The slow-moving percussion winds through the track well, anchoring the track in an easygoing tempo with a thumping bass to boot, whilst the faint melodies layered on top add a light, almost-summery vibe to the track, with the exception of a moody synth that fires through on the hook. Generally speaking, it’s a relatively dark, bass-heavy beat that’ll knock nicely in your car, and hence it’s the type that suits Q’s street raps, with his delivery on a more rough, grittier style than he usually opts for. It’s all packed into a deliberate pace that allows him to really emphasise his every sentence, an effect that works in tandem with the production to add intensity throughout the entire piece. A good opener for Q, and whilst it won’t be to everyone’s taste, it’s definitely one his longtime fans will appreciate.
