Schoolboy Q – “Yay Yay”
Kendrick Lamar might be the most exciting rap breakout of the past year, but his excitable and gravelly Black Hippy crewmate Schoolboy Q also made a pretty excellent album last year in Habits And Contradictions. And today, for the first time, we get to hear a track from the follow-up. The frequent Drake collaborator Boi-1da produced “Yay Yay,” Q’s new single, and it’s a tough but scattered track with an awesomely seasick synth-lurch and a beautifully unhinged vocal performance. Listen below.
Q’s new album Oxymoron is out sometime this year.
