One of the artists we hope would blow up this year – Schoolboy Q of The Black Hippy Collective (Kendrick Lamar, Ab Soul, Jay Rock) – seems to be doing just that. His Habits & Contradictions (buy it here) album dropped at midnight last night and is currently sitting at number 2 on the iTunes Hip-Hop Top Albums chart. We’ve heard a few joints off the album (most recently the Kendrick featuring “Blessed“) and as a last taste of the album before its release, Q gave us the chilled out “Grooveline Pt. 1” featuring Dom K and Curren$y. Give the song a listen, enjoy the smooth, crackling, soulful beat, and then answer the following question:
Q: Who do you think produced the beat?
A: LEX “H.A.M.” LUGER! If anyone got that right….I salute you.
