FInal Grade: B+
This was a solid debut album from ScHoolboy Q! I had gone into the album thinking it was going to be lyrically more along the lines of Kendrick, like I was going to be blown away by the storytelling, but I wasn't. Q seems to emulate more of the mainstream sound, but thankfully he (unlike many others) actually has the skills. It's a little more party-oriented, but the beats and the rhymes are good, so I can't hate on it. "Collard Greens" and "Blind Threats" are probably my favorite tracks, but I can see that changing, and I like when an album has tracks that make you change your mind every once in awhile. Definitely some bangers on here, I'm sure I'll be keeping this record in the arsenal.
