ScHoolboy Q
“Collard Greens” (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

Before we get to this new ScHoolboy Q track, let me give you a little cooking tip apropos of its title. When you’re making collard greens, be sure to add some brown sugar. I know obesity and type 2 diabetes are on the rise and that eating too much sugar is bad for you, but trust me on this one. Adding the unexpected ingredient gives the greens just the right flavor, especially when combined with ham hocks and red pepper flakes and all that good stuff. Man, I could go for some greens right about now…

Where was I? Oh right. I’m not here to talk about collard greens, the delicious, delicious side dish, but “Collard Greens,” the latest cut from ScHoolboy Q’s upcoming release, Oxymoron. The banger’s built around the pairing of a heavy, ticking drum beat with a sprightly synth line. ScHoolboy’s scruffy scowls aren’t a perfect match for the wintery beat, but he makes up for it with some creative boasts, like how he spends more on his daughter’s shoes than we all make in a year. *insert broke college student sob here* And then there’s K dot — C Monster’s favorite rapper of all time and the highlight of the track. He talks dirty in Spanish! He does that “doo doo doo doo” onomatopoeia thing he loves to do! His flow is on point! Nice to see the Black Hippy partners coming together — at the very least, they give me an excuse to talk about my favorite vegetable.
