Last night, the standard edition of ScHoolboy Q’s major label debut Oxymoron leaked. Naturally, Twitter and Q fans went nuts.
In less than 24 hours, listeners and music critics alike have praised TDE’s next breakout star. Oxymoron is filled with boundless energy and hardened beats that position him as a street narrator who’s made it out the trenches. While Kendrick blow up off his precision in painting images, Q is just as detailed when he describes many experiences in his life through a dark theme. His first-person view is easy to get lost in, and Oxymoron lives up to the hype so far.
Although we only got our hands on the incomplete leak, there are some big moments on it worth discussing. Gathering the first reactions of various XXL staff members, here are 11 best moments of Oxymoron.
