Based on Schoolboy Q’s previous releases – Blessed and Grooveline Pt. 1 – the SoCal emcee’s been taking a laid back approach to his Habits & Contradictions album. But Q’s here to make sure the world knows that while he’d rather party than fight, he can still throw down a smash of a track like Hands on the Wheel. Producer Best Kept Secret lays down a darkly paced beat that rides the line between banger and hazy stoner anthem, flipping an interpolation of Kid Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness into a haunting hook. On the mic ScHoolboy promises that while the two most important things in his life are weed and brews, he can still smack down any wack emcee who dares stand in his path. It’s an approach to life that A$AP Rocky takes too as the Harlem native throws down a typically purple drank fueled 16 for the guest verse. While we have to suggest you keep both hands on the wheel while doing so, why not cop ScHoolboy’s new Habits & Contradictions album (out now) and drive around town with the volume cranked to 12?
