Schoolboy Q
“Yay Yay”

Schoolboy Q’s third full-length LP, Oxymoron, hits shelves later this year, on the heels of the excellent Habits and Contradictions. The Los Angeles rapper — who was recently selected to be a member of XXL Magazine’s 2013 Freshman Class — has unveiled the first single, the Boi-1da-produced “Yay Yay.” While the title can be seen as a reflection fans’ excitement for new tunes, the topic is anything but mirthful — it’s a drug dealer’s manifesto; paranoid, prideful, and unmistakably candid. Schoolboy Q’s double-dutch rhymeplay is at the forefront here, along with his usual snarky charm. Even though the subject’s dark, there are still some lighthearted moments: “Used to fight on 49th, Grandma said be home by night/ But her old ass sixty something, so three hours late aiight,” raps Q, smiling: what Grandma doesn’t know won’t kill her.
