After a number of delays and push-backs, ScHoolboy Q's highly anticipated debut album, Oxymoron, is only a week away from seeing store shelves. Fans everywhere are anxiously waiting to here Top Dawg Entertainment's resident oxy-selling, weed smoking, ex-gang banger recount his storied career on the streets and his struggle to escape that life; all while having a good time partying.
Today, ScHoolboy dropped the visuals for one of the more popular singles from the project, the Alchemist assisted "Break The Bank". Instead of flying out to another remote island resort, like in his previous video "Man of the Year", this video's setting and concept were kept relatively simple: a gritty journey through Hoover Street and Los Angeles. ScHoolboy is our tour guide for this trip, filled with forty ounce malt liquor and Crip iconography. It is a realistic view of his world before the major label deal and his life changing decision to take rap seriously, which is addressed explicitly in the lyrics of the song. Seeing him walking with his daughter, Joy, through the back alley of a crime ridden streets, sheds a brand new light on his passion and what drives him to continue progressing in the game.
If you are a fan of TDE or ScHoolboy Q, just be patient for four more days and Oxymoron will be all yours. That's right February 25th, the Hoover Crip will have his day and it is sounding like one to remember. Yak Yak Yak!
