Overall the project was pretty good.
The Potato Farmer
This is a great, solid album from Schoolboy Q. It has good production, lyrics, and some pretty amazing beats as well.

After listening to "Setbacks" and "Habits & Contradictions" I had concerningly high expectations for Schoolboy Q's major label debut. I wanted him to follow up to those two great albums (especially the latter) with the original material and electrifying content I had learned to expect from him.

Fortunately, he delivered. Not only did this album meet my rather abnormally high expectations, it exceeded them. It's more of the talented, troubled, and twisted artist that Schoolboy Q's core audience has come to appreciate, but all the tracks manage to be original enough to reward both his sincerest fans and entertaining enough to lure in newcomers and grip them feverishly.

The album starts off with Q's young daughter introducing herself to the listeners, whereupon she reflects her father's coarse manner of speaking and forcefully asserts that her father is a "Gangsta" and the album begins.

The strongest aspect of this album is its ability to breach a wide variety of topics and contain a diverse group of songs. Not a single track sounds similar to any others. The beats are impeccable and the lyrics, breadth, range and topics he breaches are truly astounding. He shatters all of the preconceived notions that may exist on the album and offers all of his fans something to enjoy. There are tracks that reveal the menacing gangster within him, and there are tracks that reveal the doting father. Others reveal the drugged mess of a man he became ("Prescription/Oxymoron" was somber but laced with emotions) while still others reflect the braggadocios, hilarious and groovy man that has managed to captivate audiences with his visceral voice as well as his uncanny ability to speak his mind, regardless of the harrowing repercussions that such an activity may introduce into his life.

Being a child of the '70's, I've been around long enough to witness the Reagan era's so called war on drugs and the effect that it's empty rhetoric and sinister justification on the black community has had on the youth; "flood the streets with cheap easy accessible rock cocaine (crack), lock all of the males up on drug charges, turn the mothers into dope fiends and let the streets raise the young males." This is LA reality in the late 70's & early '80's. Survival of the fittest at all costs.
This is what Q lived through and witnessed first hand as a youth on 51st and Fig so what you are witnessing and hearing is a manifestation of his trials and tribulations. Don't hate or criticize if you've never had to live through it. This album isn't for you and I certainly am not making any apologies for that. This is classic LEFTCOAST "REAL" STREET MUSIC...that NWA Straight outta Compton, that Ice Cube Death Certificate, that Spice-1, RBL Posse type s***!! I salute you Q and everybody else on the left keepin' it 100 from the Fig to the 4-Line, from the 60's to the Grapes, from the Hunters to Lincoln Park down in SD.....Red n Blue make green but unity is GOLDEN!!!

I bought this album on a whim not really knowing what to expect. I'm glad I did. Oxymoron is the perfect title for this album because that's exactly what it is. This has got to be the strangest, weirdest rap album I've ever heard and I've been listening to and collecting rap albums since 1989! But there's no denying it is a masterpiece from the first song to the last! I'm glad my instincts led me to buy this CD. Studio is my jam. Other standout tracks are Collard Greens with Kendrick Lamar, another good young rap artist. In fact Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar are both on the TDE label. What They Want with 2 Chains is a banger. Blind Threats is nice too and veteran Wu-Tang member Raekwon spits strong verses despite the fact that his appearance on the song is very short. Break The Bank, Man of The Year and Grooveline Pt. 2 are all excellent songs as well. Really, there's no weak song on the album so it's an album you can listen to from beginning to end without pressing the skip button. The songs go from hardcore and gangsta to laid back and melodic and everything in between. Schoolboy can hold his own and he has a very distinctive rhyming style. He's rapping like De La Soul on one song and rapping like NWA on the next. I actually bought Habits and Contradictions later but I still think this album is better. I couldn't really get into Habits and Contradictions. Maybe because I heard this album first and was expecting a precursor to this one or maybe I just haven't listened to it enough. I only gave it one listen in my car and I skipped through some songs. I've still got it around somewhere so I'll probably dig it out and listen to it again.Read more ›

This cd is really amazing to the ear. Good lyrics, great features, nice hooks, nice production, everything. Schoolboy never disappoints. Even from the mixtapes and his previous album. "Habits And Contradictions". TDE is finna take over real soon.

I have to say that Schoolboy Q is definitely on his game with some well constructed wordplay over some hot tracks. You can't go wrong with a TDE artist
