Song of the Day #15: Schoolboy Q - Collard Greens (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

Oh, luxury!

This is a pretty old song at this point, but has anyone actually stopped listening to it yet? This is like a brand new addictive style of flow. Please listen to these verses and think really hard about where the syllabic stress follows. I swear it's forming some sort of Morse code-style subliminal message that says "keep listening to this song". Seriously I have thought about it over and over again and the way the flow on these verses breaks down is like... it's so strange, but so obviously deliberate, but I have no idea why it sounds so so so good. The super slick beat obviously helps, but what makes that beat so slick? This song is such a mystery to me. What is way less mysterious are the lyrics themselves, which are all clever, often hilarious, and just straight up on-point, like, aggressively so. This is the sound of experts showing off.
