Schoolboy Q is an underground hip-hop artist from Los Angeles whose celebrated debut "street album" is considered to be a pristine example of conventional west coast hip-hop that alternates between the cannabis-inspired and the socially-conscious. However, conventionality is by no means a draw back where the music of Schoolboy Q is concerned, as a matter of fact, the one thing that many musicians in this day and age need to realize is that skill must come before originality, and Schoolboy Q has proven to the world that he's more than capable at putting together a near-perfect rap record. Indeed, Schoolboy Q's almost academic approach to hip-hop continues to contribute to the longevity of the genre as not only an enduring aspect of popular culture, but as a studied art form in its own right.
