Schoolboy Q is a rapper from South Los Angeles, California. Blue Lips is a much more polished release than his previous work. His flows are innovative, his concepts and messages are well-put together, and his music videos are cinematic. The problem with this album conceptually is he's hinting at an elitism argument for his culture that isn't connected to any sort of integration or approval. That makes the flex a little pointless. Rapindie appreciates it though. Schoolboy Q has a grounded outlook on culture that is highly actionable and coherent. Some artists don't seem to be as calmly in control of their destiny. Blue Lips is a good cohesive album, but it isn't a "must listen".
