    Very classic album Schoolboy Q did it again. His mixtapes & albums are instant classics. He taking hip hop by storm and he's bringing it back to the top of the food chain

    Q's energetic, exuberant delivery is frames by some impressive and varied production throughout. [Jun 2012, p.108]

    Habits & Contradictions is less like a label-released full-length and more like an amateurish mixtape, a work in progress.

    Habits & Contradictions is a pleasurable listen with head-scratchingly pretty samplings and lyrics more or less liberated from value care of Q's devotion to "weed and brews" and the delirious enjoyment of something so simple as saying "fuck" a lot.
