Schoolboy Q has a unique style style that combines brain food with stoner rap. Just consult Setbacks for the stripes of Q's potent poetry--lazy evenings described as "nights yawning," skinny blunts as "model thin," fat ones as "plus size." Even more impressive is the delivery behind those lines: crisp flows accentuated by his nasal flow, enlivened by lush production. One part mind massage, one part street flavor. 100% dope.
