A few days ago we posted about ScHoolboy Q’s music video for Oxymoron single “Man Of The Year”. Well, now we have more news about the upcoming project as TDE made the album available for preorder on iTunes this week and the people who did received an unbelievable treat. While the cover art for Oxymoron (the regular version, the deluxe features Q in a ski mask and signature bucket hat) is fitting with ScHoolboy Q’s daughter Joy taking center stage, that is not the gift we are referring to. Oxymoron’s next single “Break The Bank” (produced by The Alchemist) was made available for those who made the preorder and it is arguably the best rap song to be released so far in 2014. Bottom line…Oxymoron cannot come soon enough. 

We heard a short snippet of “Break The Bank” a few months ago on Instagram and it has exceeded our high expectations of the track. The eerie, haunting piano keys provided by The Alchemist provide the perfect backdrop for ScHoolboy Q’s lyrics reflecting on his past days of hustling with the flow on display being top notch. There are not many rappers who can portray the “gangster” rap lifestyle these days and maintain a certain level of mainstream appeal…ScHoolboy Q is one of them.

From the hook to the bridge to the three verses, Q just rips the track apart over this Alchemist banger. Personally, I must have already played this track 20 times since it came out less than 24 hours ago. Excessive…absolutely, but I can say that my anticipation for Oxymoron is at an all time high after the release of this song. All signs are pointing to ScHoolboy Q coming through with an album that may be one of the best of 2014. Rest assured we will be awaiting any more news regarding the project.

You can listen to “Break The Bank” below and let us know what you think.
