Yea just finished listening to Habits & Contradictions… The new mix tape from Schoolboy Q, and if you are looking for a DISTINCT and unparalleled sound then you need to download this album PRONTO! (legally of course…) This is Schoolboy Q’s 4th mix tape and he has mastered the art of his craft. Another LA artist, Schoolboy Q’s latest mix tape has the sound-appeal of something made for the hood. But I’m not talking about some oh “shoot’em up, bang-bang, I’ll kill yo mamma shit” I’m talking about “drugs, sex, and alcohol shit” something you can ride to and the same time something you can party too. If you’re a rap/hip hop fan this mix tape will become a favorite.
For those of you out there who live under a rock (or just don’t come to the site) and don’t know Q, let me give you an idea of his sound. Schoolboy is almost a mixture of Kid Cudi and Kendrick Lamar. And if that sounds good to you Habits & Contradictions will sound even better. All the beats bang! The track with ASAP Rocky samples Cudi’s Pursuit of Happiness and is CRAZY!!! As you can see I am a little excited about this one, lol… Q’s style is filled with a swag that tells you he knows what he’s doing, and he has the ability to tailor his flow to whatever beat he’s on. Which is why I would define Habits & Contradictions as an complete album. With the complement of the tracks to the lyrics I promise Schoolboy Q will keep you listening.
Now that you know about Schoolboy Q, take some action and download Habits & Contradictions. Then let me know what you think @DISTINCT_SOUND (that’s twitter, duh), but until then CHECK THE TRACK AND POST BACK!!!

So I’m back y’all!!! After taking a week off for the new year. Hope you all stayed safe and didn’t get too crazy! Well with all that extra time I found something extra special. I say special because it’s the first woman (of many) on Distinct Sound. And she aint on here just because she’s a woman, trust… I am very excited to introduce Toni Monroe!!! She’s a West Coast bred flame out of LA and one of the hottest female MC’s I’ve heard since Nicki Minaj. But her sound, unlike Nicki is very strong, rough, and raw. So don’t be fooled by the innocent face because her lyrics are nasty!
The lyrics of Toni Monroe are like that of an OG rap artist, she will re-establish your thought of the female MC. Monroe’s lyrics display a knowledge beyond her years. In her music her voice will almost take you back, late 80’s early 90’s, and give you a feel of a sound between Mc Lyte and Queen Latifah. But her lyrics are no doubt one of a kind. With the rap game dominated by men and moving in a direction of the more lyrical MC, Toni Monroe will be able to hold her own and shine bright in the mist of the big boys. And even with that strong delivery her lyrics flow seamlessly with every beat, her new mixtape, Big Girl Cookies, puts the talent front and central.
FOLKS don’t just take my word, check her out and try to prove me wrong. Toni Monroe is simply undeniably dope! If you can find a hotter female MC out now, I like to hear her… Until next week check the tracks and post back!!!
