ScHoolboy Q Lists His 25 Favorite Albums

ScHoolboy Q says "Oxymoron" is one of his favorite albums ever, followed by Ab-Soul's "Control System" and Kendrick Lamar's "good kid, m.A.A.d. city."

As ScHoolboy Q gears up for the February 25 release his full-length debut album Oxymoron, Q named his 25 favorite albums of all time in a Complex list with Oxymoron being one of them.

"Oxymoron is way different from my previous projects," Q says in the article. "It's crazy. If you've heard 'Break The Bank,' it's kinda similar to that. It's an album that needed to be put out, to be heard, so I took my time with it, got all the right rappers. I didn't go get a million features on my shit, just a few, and made this shit happen. This shit was hard. I'd call it a classic. I know what I like, and I know that shit is hard as fuck. That's my life and it ain't got no history. A little Crip history, a little everything in there. It's just an album that needed to be heard."

Ab-Soul's Control System was also a part of Q's list. "Ab-Soul killed [Control System]. That's one of his best works. He's on some shit. I like 'Track Two,' 'Terrorist Threats,' and 'Pineal Gland.'" Q also named good kid, m.A.A.d. city his third favorite project. "Classic album," Q said. "It's 2014 and niggas act like that came out a couple months ago. Good music gone always live."

Q's Habits & Contradictions and Setbacks were named as well as Jay Rock's Follow Me HomeN.E.R.D.'s Seeing Sounds, 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin', Nas' Stillmatic and Ghostface Killah's Supreme Clientele

"Ghostface killed it," Q said of Supreme Clientele. It's one of my favorite albums from a Wu-Tang member. He was spazzing on there. 'God damn right, I fuck fans,' that nigga too hard for that. That line set the whole album off. Wu-Tang never gave a fuck. Nigga was saying his shit, he didn't give a fuck and you believed it. You'd be like, 'Nigga I understand what you saying.' Sometimes you'd be lost, but you'd be like, 'Yeah, I feel that.' or 'I fuck with that.'"

Q recently previewed Oxymoron selections during a Los Angeles listening session held at SONOS Studios February 17.
