Schoolboy Q at Prospect Park in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
There's still no word on when Schoolboy Q's much-anticipated new album, Oxymoron, will be out, but he's just released another track that's expected to make it on the LP, "Banger (MOSHPIT)." It sees Q veering pretty close to gangsta rap, and after the psychedelic Kendrick Lamar collab "Collard Greens" and the party-rap track "Yay Yay," it sounds like Oxymoron is shaping up to be a pretty diverse album. Listen below.
Schoolboy Q also has some shows coming up. Catch him the NYC-area with the whole Black Hippy crew (Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock) at NJ's Rock The Bells on 10/4 (tickets), and again when he and Kendrick team up with Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, and more for 105.1 Powerhouse at Barclays Center on November 2 (tickets). If you're in LA, you can also see him at the Odd Future Festival with Tyler, Earl, Frank Ocean, Flying Lotus, Trash Talk, and more (tickets). All dates are listed below.
Meanwhile, Schoolboy Q will appear on an album that we're (kind of) sure will come out this year, Danny Brown's Old. Its September 30 release date was pushed back to October 8, but it's supposed to stream on Spotify on 9/30. Check out that album's full tracklist (guest appearances and production credits included), along with the list of Q dates and the new track stream, below.
