Man of the Year
Schoolboy Q hasn’t released an album in two years, but those two years have been the biggest of his career regardless. As 2012 ended, the A$AP Rocky–featuring “Hands on the Wheel” gave the L.A. rapper his first spins on New York radio. The following year, his “Collard Greens” and “Man of the Year” both became national hits, and his Macklemore collaboration, “White Walls,” exposed his raspy flow and dense, conflicted lyrics to an entirely new audience. Tonight, following the release of his long-awaited new LP, Oxymoron, said to be even darker than past affairs, he plays the Best Buy Theater with Tennessee’s Isaiah Rashad and Vince Staples, another Californian.
