It’s feeling like Christmas all over again with artists gifting their fans with new music every day. Earlier this week, Kid Cudi surprised the world and dropped his new album, Satellite Flight. Schoolboy Q also released his long awaited album, which is filled with party bangers and truly lives up to the hype.

Here are the lines of the week:

5. “No one wants a troubled boy, Leave alone the troubled boy” — Kid Cudi, ‘Troubled Boy’

Cudi has been a somewhat of a trouble child with some anger issues and recreational drug use. He’s dealt with them forever and learned people will never understand him for being himself.

4. “My mommy call, I hit ignore, My daughter calls, I press ignore” — Schoolboy Q, ‘Prescription/Oxymoron’

Q opens up about his drug use and getting rid of the lean sipping days. Throughout all this, the pain had him ducking calls from the 2 girls he loves unconditionally- his mom and his 4 year old daughter.

3. “But damn I’m feeling like Sam except my daddy ain’t stuck no video game, Things change” — Kid Cudi, ‘Too Bad I Have to Destroy You’

Continuing the intergalactic vibe of Cudi’s album, this is a reference to the movie TRON, in which the main character Sam is brought into the digital world to save his dad.

2. “Give me racks and you won’t get a quarter, She don’t run game, I’m the only controller” — Schoolboy Q, ‘Gangsta’ 

No matter who it is, Q is on top of them. Notice the wordplay between game and controller, he is always in control whether it’s with his money or his women.

1. “Them n***** fubu they fugazi lean got me lazy” — Vic Mensa, ‘Feel That’

Vic finds a way to lend us some Chi-Town slang, as “fubu” and “fugazi” are both terms for calling something fake. While Vic is as real as it gets, the purple juice has him relaxing to the max.
