Schoolboy Q’s highly anticipated debut album is set to drop on Feb. 25 and Q has definitely come a long way since his Setbacks (2011) days.  In these three short years Schoolboy Q has been on many songs and released Habits and Contradictions (2012). For many fans that have been following Q’s career since the beginning, they are excited for the release of Oxymoron (Feb. 25).TDE label mates have changed their profile pictures to the album’s cover artwork, showing their support as they did for Kendrick Lamar. Fans have also changed their profile pictures to the cover and pre-ordered the album on iTunes, showing support and excitement. This upcoming Sunday (Feb. 23), Schoolboy Q will be letting some fans preview his debut album at New York City’s Le Possion Rouge. The live event is free for general admission and the lucky concert goers will get to be the first to hear the new material. 

J Cole’s ‘She Knows’ video was released on Friday, February 14. The song is from Cole’s sophomore album 'Born Sinner' which was released in June 2013. The video has a bit of twist and meaning to it which is great display of Cole’s thoughts. The video starts out chronicling a teenage boy’s adventure when he skips school but at the end there is a twist that ties the song and the video together.

Making a Come Back

I know I haven’t been on this blog in a long time but I do plan on making a come back. While dealing with some personal issues I lost some motivation and it kept me from committing to this blog. Now I have the desire to make it better and be on it more. I am so excited about the ideas that I have going on in my head. Please stay tuned and follow if you are not now.

    Let Nas Down (REMIX)

    J. Cole/NaS

Currently listening to ‘New York Times’ off of the ‘Truly Yours 3’ bonus disc. I bought the regular digitally and I spent the entire week listening to it before I blogged about it. The start of ‘Villuminati’ Cole states, “Its way darker this time.” I like how he gave us kind of a visual of where he was going with this album. I believe that this album was way darker because of songs like ‘Villuminati’, ‘Trouble’, ‘Land of Snakes’ and ‘Let Nas Down.’ The Kerney Sermon skit takes me back to ‘Blow Up’ (Friday Night Lights), in which Cole raps “Praise God it’s hard to stay spiritual/ How they got these niggas on the TV selling miracles/ You mean to tell me everything gon be fine/ If I call your hotline and pay 29.99 shit”; I feel like I am reminiscing on past mixtapes or songs. The most noticeable song that he is clearly taking us back to is ‘Power Trip’, Cole takes us back to ’ ‘Dreams’ (The Warm Up). I’m not sure J Cole is trying to do this on purpose but I love the fact that he is because an artist should always reminisce to show improvement. Born Sinner shows J Cole’s improvement and I can’t wait to see him at the Grammy’s again. Now lets wait to see when the Kendrick Lamar collaboration is going to come out.
