ScHoolboy Q Calls "Oxymoron" His "Best Work" Yet

ScHoolboy Q refers to "Oxymoron" as a classic, but hopes his fans will have the final say.

The word “classic” is one that’s used often to describe a number of notable albums in Hip Hop and according to TDE wordsmith ScHoolboy Q, he’s hoping his fans will decide whether or not his upcoming LP, Oxymoron, is worthy of such a title.

With Oxymoron set for release sometime in the near future, Q recently sat down with to speak on the album he feels is his “best work” yet.

“It’s a classic album I would like to say, but I would like the people to say it’s a classic. But in my eyes it’s a crazy album…I’m really proud of myself for this record,” the Habits & Contradictions rapper revealed.

ScHoolboy Q further commented on the album as he compared it to past releases including 2012’s Habits & Contradictions and his independent debut, Setbacks. The rapper stated that the major difference between the three projects is that he wasn’t forced to compromise on Oxymoron.

“It’s me. This album is really me. It’s my life,” said the rapper. “Habits & Contradictions and Setbacks was more like—I compromised a little bit also with them projects. ‘Hands On The Wheel’ was like I really was like ‘I’mma go to radio with this’…I made this project the way I wanted it to make. I wanted it to sound [right]. So, this album is crazy. It’s my best work. I know a lot of rappers say that when they dropping they albums, but I’m one of those dudes it ain’t like I drop mixtapes. It ain’t like I do that type of stuff. Drop songs every month to let you know I’m really in the studio perfecting things.”

In addition to losing the need to compromise, Oxymoron may boast a “more comfortable” Q. While speaking exclusively with HipHopDX earlier in the year, the rapper shared a few words of advice for his fellow emcees as he touched on his increased comfortability with music.

“I feel like all rappers, the more comfortable you are, the better your raps are gon’ be. When I was in the studios [before], I wrote the verse, and I wasn’t comfortable, but I just did it anyway,” said Q. “The more comfortable you are with your music, the iller you gon’ get. You feel confident and comfortable in your voice and find yourself.”

    every time niggas make albums they say: its a classic, its my best album sofar! I remember those rappers in the 80'and 90's never said this shit. They didnt need to do that. BTW Since the 90's there were no classic rapalbums made and fuck with your game, 50 cent, kanye, diipset etc

      All those mix tapes from Dip Set is what made me not like them any more. I loved Diplomatic Immunity, but by the time DI2 came out, i was tired of them. and to drizzy1, so what if it is commercial, are you gonna say cannibal ox is better than nas cuz he is more commercial? you remind me of the dudes who ONLY listen to non-commercial music and sit there and hate on stuff a lot of people like.

      no one knows hip hop

    • drizzy!

      All the albums you listed are commercial. And Watch The Throne ain't anywhere near a classic. Try Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein, El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead, Blu & Exile - Below The Heavens even Fashawn - Boy Meets World, Section 8 and GKMC are both up there too.

What rapper is really going to be like, my new stuff is okay. but as far as classic after the 90's go.... blueprint get rich or die trying college dropout stillmatic black album common's be i would even throw watch the throne on that list... just to name a few

    I like Q's music, but I feel like he's kinda fucking himself by continuing to say that his album is going to be a classic. Better live up to the expectations, shit, he might as well say that the album is awful, that would work better
