In 2013, SchoolBoy is expected to release his new album "OxyMoron" Setbacks
Although Hanley did not release a project, 2010 had him touring, doing guest appearances and had him in the studio working with the rest of Black Hippy and on his then-upcoming project Setbacks. On January 11, 2011, exclusively through iTunes he released Setbacks, his first independent album under Top Dawg Entertainment, to critical acclaim.[14] The album reached #100 on the Billboard 200 selling 787 units its first week.[15] Two weeks after the album's release Hanely took to Twitter and gave the album away for free.[16] By the time Schoolboy Q's first album Setbacks was released in early 2011, he'd quit gangbanging altogether.[17]

Setbacks propelled Hanley into the spotlight and allowed him to earn a large internet following: "The concept behind Setbacks was [to talk about] all the shit that's the reason why I can't rap. The reason I can't accomplish what I want to accomplish is because I'm doing all this dumb shit. I put it all together on the album. Like, "Druggys Wit Hoes", I'm out here drugging and I'm not even trying to fuck with hoes. "Kamikaze", I'm not even trying to rap—keep going broke. Different shit like that, I sum it up all in one album. My life did a whole 180 after that dropped. A lot of people still didn’t know the name though, but a lot of people did. It was weird. It just took me to the right spot. I made some fucking money off the project, it helped me see that I needed to do more positive shit in life, and it made me into the person I am now. All I do now is just chill. I'd rather just chill, work on my music, be with my two-year-old daughter, and smoke weed and shit."[18]

Hanely headlined his first show on March 11, 2011, at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California.[19] In March 2011, Hanley was arrested at the 2011 South by Southwest music festival and explained that he was ultimately jailed because of marijuana they go'. Of courpossession: "I got sent to jail for some weed. That was all bad. And I was the one that broke up the fight", said Schoolboy Q. "And then my manager Dave he thought he was Tupac Shakur, 'Don't touch my artist! Don't touch my artist! Don t touch my artist!' I'm cool. I'm his artist. I'm like whatever. I'm straight then he kept going crazy. My ass went to the pen... Yeah, I got away and then everybody walked out like Tupac in MGM. Police was like 'Aww, there se I'm the only one with all the weed."[20]
