ScHoolboy Q and The Alchemist are an already established collaborative force, so get excited for “Break The Bank,” the latest leak from Q’s new record Oxymoron. (That’s the standard edition’s cover above, featuring a photo of his daughter Joy. Q is in the ski mask for the deluxe edition, below the song stream.)
Money is the song’s focus, but in his pursuit Q addresses the crucial ways it helps him live, like escaping his drug dealing past and providing for his daughter. Yes, drugs and clothes are addressed, but it’s a part of the exposure to the many dimensions of Q. This grit sands over the chilly, groovy beat, and makes it an underdog theme you can blast down the highway.
