Schoolboy Q’s Oxy Moron album has generated some siginificant buzz in recent weeks. His popularity seems to be soaring as he makes television and radio appearances.
In his latest video for ‘Break the Bank,’ Q traverses familiar Los Angeles neighborhoods that embody the quintessential LA street culture. The vivid imagery of this video is captured by director Jason Goldwatch. The song loops a stark, almost haunting piano melody as Schoolboy fires off a raspy, staccato flow. There is a sing-songy chorus done in the same raspy tone that maintains the grittiness of the song, and never lingers into pop territory.
If you didn’t know already, the official release date for Schoolboy Q’s Oxy Moron is Tuesday, February 25th by Top Dawg Entertainment and Interscope Records.
