Hear the ScHoolboy Q/A$AP Rocky Track That Didn't Make 'Oxymoron'

We definitely didn't have any complaints about ScHoolboy Q's excellent new album Oxymoron when it dropped yesterday. But after hearing "Californication"—the incredible A$AP Rocky collabo ScHoolboy recorded for Oxymoron but relegated to Target bonus track status—we kinda wish this was on the proper album.

Yes, this is the laziest song title we've heard in a while (it's already a wildly popular album and a TV show), but otherwise "Californication" is a total win. The fuzzed-out bass line, the skittering 808 playing in the background and A$AP's inimitable verse all combine to make this one massive banger. Obviously, A$AP + ScHoolboy = magic, as proven many times before.

Does "Californication" need to be on Oxymoron? No. But had Q included this track with his frequent collaborator, it would definitely stand out as an album highlight. Listen to it above.
