New Q! Accompanied by his TDE brethren Kendrick Lamar. OxyMoron is on its way sooner than later. Enjoy.
Q sits down with Jack Thriller and talks about making the XXL Freshmen Cover, his debut album “Oxymoron“, etc. If you haven’t already, peep his newest single, which will probably show up on his debut album.
Schoolboy Q is slowly building up the anticipation for his next project, OXYmoron, and is probably one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Schoolboy hits with another banger with this one. Even though this isn’t the mastered track, it’s gonna be amazing to see what Ali does to it in mastering. YAH YAH YAH!!!
Kendrick and Groovy Q find themselves in Atlanta sitting down with DJ Drama and discuss a myriad of things, notably, Kendricks performance at SXSW, wanting Nas to be on “Sing About “Me”, and ScHoolboy’s appearance on the XXL Freshmen Cover. Interview is split into three parts, catch parts two and three after the jump.
While out in Texas for SXSW a few weeks ago, Schoolboy and the TDE crew decided to film an “episode” of their own MTV Cribs-ish type of show. Like always, the TDE crew is cracking jokes, and we get a cameo from Ali (Schoolboy’s oldest son), Kendrick (the silent one), and Soul (some guy on the stairs). R.I.P to Schoolboy’s imaginary son.
Every Spring in Southern California, legends and up and coming artists assemble at the Paid Dues Music Festival hosted by Murs and Guerilla Union to put on one of the biggest shows of the year for Hip Hop’s loyal fans. This year, the Paid Dues lineup didn’t hold out on fans, and the fans responded with the masses, with over 25,000 fans filling up the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. From Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli, Jean Grae (the only female artist on the lineup) to Joey Bada$$ and Flatbush Zombies, the span of decades covered for Hip Hop fans was very diverse. Headlining the event we’re most recent breakout artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Black Hippy, and Dom Kennedy. With a lineup like that, it’s safe to say that the day was constantly active on any of the three stages that Paid Dues had to offer.
As a special treat for everyone out there for Easter, we decided to cook up a little something for you to grove to on this smooth day. Island Def Jam signee Jhené Aiko has been doing her thing for a second now and has a bunch of scattered records and features with other people, so we wanted to compile all of those works and put them into one place. Which is why we came with “The Soul Sessions” a bunch of records from the soulful songstress. This should be more than enough to hold you over while we wait for her official album, Souled Out, which is coming sooner than later. Either way this mix comes with appearances from Ab-Soul, H.O.P.E., Kendrick Lamar, Common, ScHoolBoy Q, Wale, Cocaine 80′s, Big Sean & more. Hit the jump on where to get it.
UPDATE Much Love to Jhene for tweeting the mixtape out!

Now that Kendrick has killed the game ScHoolboy Q is next up on the TDE roster as far as releases go, and this is his newest single “Yay Yay” from his new album Oxymoron being performed for the first time at the The Avalon, Sneakerpimps Battle Royale event earlier tonight. Much love to the fam Justin for the look. Enjoy.
While in the studio for Schoolboy Q’s upcoming project, Oxymoron, the TDE surprised K. Dot with Jay-Z’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe (Remix”) verse. Needless to say that Kendrick was impressed and surprised at the same time. “I can’t believe they let us in the rap game” – Ab-Soul.
