Jumped Off The Peg

Schoolboy Q “Los Awesome”

I love the way Schoolboy Q’s chorus seems to bounce off Pharrell’s track like it’s a trampoline – even the down beats sound like they’re up in the air. The synth tone is fantastic too: just fuzzy enough to seem a little jagged and abrasive, but still clean and precise enough to have that classic Neptunes feel to it. “Los Awesome” isn’t that intriguing on a lyrical level – it’s a pretty basic ode to gang banging – but Q’s one of those rappers who makes every syllable sound exciting, so this track is really all about an overwhelming and energetic sound. It’s very hard to resist.

Buy it from Amazon.
