Watch: ScHoolboy Q Keeps it Hood with “Break The Bank” Video
Emitting a strong 90s hip-hop vibe, the song serves as the fourth single from his third studio album and major label debut, Oxymoron, out February 25th via Top Dawg Entertainment and Interscope Records.
Starring his 4-year-old daughter Joy Hanley, the video takes us to the 27-year-old rapper’s hometown of Los Angeles, California as he reminisces: “Lost one of my cuzzos, cursed from them devils / Good weed and me time, goodbye to Nissan / Cause one day this rappin’ gon’ pay.”
Written by ScHoolboy Q, Alchemist, and Sounwave (member of TDE’s Digi+Phonics), “Break The Bank” has peaked at #32 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
The song and album are preceded by singles “Yay Yay,” “Collard Greens,” featuring Kendrick Lamar and “Man of the Year.”
“Collard Greens” peaked at #92 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, #28 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and #9 on US Heatseekers Songs, while “Man of the Year” entered at #81 on the same chart, becoming his highest-charting single on that chart.
The album also features 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, A$AP Rocky, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock, Danny Brown, Tyler, The Creator, Action Bronson, and Raekwon, with production by J. Cole, Pharrell Williams, and Tae Beast (Digi+Phonics).
Oxymoron will be supported by an international tour, set to take place from March 1 to June 1, 2014 across North America and Europe.
