It’s no secret that Kendrick Lamar is killing it right now. He’s one of those dudes that seems on the fast track to superstardom, and at this point, it would take some kind of serious roadblock to stop him from getting there. When guys blow up, usually they take along a few friends. Usually, their friends aren’t up to par. But Kendrick? He must pick his friends based on the quality of their music.
Schoolboy Q is another Compton rapper affiliated with Top Dawg Entertainment, and he’s got style for days. Between “Druggys WitH Hoes Again” and this, his upcoming HABITS & Contradictions project is shaping up to be supremely entertaining. The beat starts off something serious, but Q comes in and flips it with the borderline-spastic “There He Go” catchphrase. Don’t sleep.
