Oxymoron sent shockwaves through the culture upon arrival when it initially debuted on February 25, 2014. Crashing the charts, it bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200 and scored a platinum certification, cementing ScHoolboy Q as one of 21st century rap’s most viciously vital voices. Powered by the 4x-platinum “Collared Greens” [feat. Kendrick Lamar], 3x-platinum “Man of the Year,” 3x-platinum “Studio” [feat. BJ The Chicago Kid], and gold-certified “What They Want” [feat. 2 Chainz], it garnered a GRAMMY® Award nod in the category of “Best Rap Album, while “Studio” notched a nomination for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Complex named it in the Top 10 of “The Best Albums of 2014 (So Far), and Pitchfork applauded, Oxymoron is a victory in that Q’s sound has made the jump to the majors fully intact in an era where major label debuts often take a chop shop approach to assembly.” Not to mention, it has amassed over 2 billion total streams and counting. 


In the last ten years, this South Central hip-hop blockbuster has emerged as both a staple in the classic TDE catalog and West Coast rap at large.

MORE INFO 

You’d be forgiven for assuming ScHoolboy Q was ready to kick back. His fifth studio album, 2019’s CrasH Talk—the third consecutive LP of his to debut in the top three on the Billboard 200—capped a decade of dominance for the South Central-bred rapper, one that saw him rack up Gold and Platinum plaques, five Grammy nominations, and a reputation as one of the most inventive and influential stylists in hip-hop. But something was just a little bit off. “I didn’t feel like my normal self anymore,” he says. Blue Lips, Q’s rabidly anticipated sixth album, not only gets to the bottom of that uncomfortable feeling but probes beyond it, and allows him to redefine success on your own terms. Around his 20th birthday, Q got involved with Top Dawg Entertainment. Together with compatriots Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Kendrick Lamar, Q vaulted from virtual anonymity to the top of the food chain. After his 2011 debut, Setbacks, a star was born and for nearly a decade, the momentum would never waver. But after CrasH Talk—after 2012’s Habits & Contradictions, 2014’s Oxymoron, and 2016’s Blank Face LP; Q found himself confronting a void. As a result, this new album features Q’s most precise, economical writing to date and injects new emotions and tones seemingly at will. It’s the kind of record that could only be made by someone who has mastered his skillset—and knows exactly what he wants to say. And what ScHoolboy Q wants to say is that it’s time to keep our eyes on the horizon. “Whatever happened in the past isn’t today,” he says. “I can’t really fix it. But I can fix today and tomorrow.”
