It’s a mark of how awesome Schoolboy Q’s new record Habits & Contradictions is that “Hands on the Wheel,” the A$AP Rocky-featuring, Lissie cover of Kid Cudi-sampling banger that we guarantee will spawn your new catchphrase (that’d be “life for me is just weed and brews”) might not even be the best track the album has to offer (or maybe we’re just too busy flipping our shit over the Menomena sample on “There He Go”).

But there really is no denying “Hands on the Wheel” – it’s impeccably produced (that sample!) and catchy as all hell, with fantastic verses from two of the most promising young rappers we know of. The moral of the story is that you should really press play immediately. Habits & Contradictions is out now.

SCHOOLBOY Q – “Hands on the Wheel” f/ A$AP Rocky

As if Mr. Rocky wasn’t busy enough, he’s also dropped a brand new track for free via his twitter, the woozy, look-how-far-I’ve-come lighters-in-the-air burner “Celebration.”
