CrasH – [Schoolboy Q]

With every passing second, the anticipation surrounding Schoolboy Q’s forthcoming album, CrasH Talk, is only growing, and today, it shoots up yet again with a brand new single, “CrasH.” Considering that the project is releasing this Friday, this offering is presumably the last single that will come out before the full album, and in all honest, it’s the perfect final statement.

Over a bed of soul-stricken, hard-nosed production, this offering allows Q to reflect, using a slew of effortlessly charismatic rhymes to speak on how he’s found his way in the world as well as the responsibilities that come with this success. Needless to say, “CrasH” is certainly a thoughtful release, and it’s one of the more exciting lyrical performances that I’ve heard this year, providing a deeper look into the fascinating world of Schoolboy Q, from his days of gang activity all the way to million dollar deals and rap stardom.

Responsibilities may change, but they never fade away. Q understands this, and before the curtains close, he’s going to provide for his people, make timeless music, and be the man he knows he needs to be. Stream “CrasH” below and prepare yourself for CrasH Talk coming out this Friday!
