Annie’s Review - Schoolboy Q ‘Oxymoron’
I literally just finished listening to this album minus the 3 bonus tracks on the deluxe edition, which I’ll be purchasing shortly. But back to this review…
On a whole ‘Oxymoron’ is certainly a great project! The use of his daughters (Joy) cute little voice on a few tracks and skits was a wonderful idea to sorta help smooth out the rough edges. Although the subject matter of mostly all the songs were meant for adults ears only, Q’s daughter did say a few curse words, which Im not a fan of (underage cursing) personally. However, all in all, a well put together album.
Mostly every track on ‘Oxymoron’ is not formatted for constant radio play. But this was clearly not the purpose of this album. Schoolboy Q is staying true to real Hip Hop in every way. He has unapologetically made it apparent that his work speaks for itself and being the realest in the room is far more important than being the most popular. And for that, he just might be both when it’s all said and done.
I give this ‘Oxymoron’ 4 of my Kisses out of 5. Make sure you cop yours today!
Who else is ready for this album? I talk about @GroovyQ #Oxymoron now on #IHateNewMusicButUmm. Click my bio link to check it out today!
TDE’s own Schoolboy Q dropped is second independent album “Oxymoron” yesterday (2/25/14). The reviews on this album show nothing but high acclaim. Vibe called it “perfectly imperfect”. Billboard’s Track by Track Review says “Oxymoron treads the line between paradise amd poison”.
I, for one, will be purchasing this album in hopes of honoring real Hip Hop. Schoolboy Q is arguably one of the best rappers of this generation in my opinion. Although I haven’t heard the entire album, I know that I can be rest assured that it will be worth every penny and then some! Schoolboy Q is the kind of artist that you know won’t put out crap! Stay tuned for my review (Annie’s Review).
