ScHoolboy – ‘Banger (Moshpit)’
As ScHoolboy Q fans eagerly anticipate the release of his next album, ‘Oxymoron,’ the Los Angeles rapper serves up a new track made for live shows and hype-as-hell outings.
‘Banger (Moshpit),’ which is produced by the Renegades, hits just as hard as you’d expect with a title like that. The beat never gets too outlandish or invasive but even so, it’s still, you know, a banger. It also sounds like something he would have murdered on his 2012 album, the great ‘Habits & Contradictions,’ which should appease his longtime listeners looking forward to his next project, ‘Oxymoron.’
Q is right at home over instrumentals like this as he shows off both his blunted approach and his more in-your-face delivery. It’s that combination that’s made him such an intriguing character in hip-hop these past few years—like a self-aware gangster with a sense of humor.
