First Quarter Best Albums of 2012 #1: ScHoolboy Q – Habits And Contradictions

Schoolboy Q has little of Black Hippy alpha Kendrick Lamar’s gloomy-paladin aura, or his rap-Hamlet charisma. But it’s worth noting that, at least right now, Schoolboy is making stronger music than Kendrick. Habits & Contradictions sounds comfortable in its skin, at home its own quiet strangeness, in a way that Section.80 never manages. It’s better-paced. He’s probably not going to be a break-out star, but it’s hard to imagine that there will be many more original or satisfying rap long-players this year.
