Schoolboy Q – “Man Of The Year”

Right about now, Kendrick Lamar is tangling with GQ over his portrayal in the magazine’s Man Of The Year issue. And through some weird cosmic confluence, Kendrick’s Black Hippy comrade Schoolboy Q has a new song called “Man Of The Year” — a song completely unrelated to Kendrick’s issues with GQ. Q debuted a snippet of the song in Kendrick’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” video a few months ago, and the full track turns out to be a tense, contained, triumphant banger with a smartly selected Chromatics sample. It appears on the soundtrack to the NBA Live ’14 video game, and you can hear it below.

Schoolboy Q’s Oxymoron album is hopefully coming very soon from TDE/Interscope.
