“Rat-Tone my niggas’ brother showed me my first K
I was amazed, me and Floyd was in the back, he called us over like “Hey”
Yawk, yawk, yawk, yawk! We like “Damn, nigga”
Then again, yawk, yawk! We like “Damn, nigga”
Hearing him say cause turned us to a fan, nigga
Later on he got locked so know we’re taking his fades
Continue the chapter from his life, we flipping that page
Gangbanging was a ritual and grandma would help
She should’ve never left her gun on the shelf
This little Piggy went to market, this little Piggy carry chrome”

On “Hover Street” ScHoolboy Q tells the story of stealing his first gun from his grandmother. No doubt, this is in many ways a traditional gangsta rap record, focusing on the usual central themes; sex, drugs and guns. Stripped down beats with super heavy baselines also gives a certain dirty early 90s vibe. Rap is all about delivery though, and in 2014 very few deliver with the same intensity and aggression as Q. This album also manages to bring out the best of its guest appearances. On “Collard Greens” Kendrick Lamar returns to his good old form and Tyler, The Creator has never sounded meaner than when laying down the hook for “The Purge”.
