Ab-Soul Recounts His Travels on the Dark Side on Unreleased Track (Audio)
It’s been more than a year and a half since Ab-Soul released his third and most recent solo LP, These Days…, and while his TDE cohorts Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock both had major releases in 2015, many are missing the self-described “black-lipped bastard”‘s presence in the Rap game. Appearances on tracks from Lupe Fiasco (“They.Ressurect.Over.New”), Statik Selektah (“All You Need”), and the Game (“Dollar and a Dream”) have certainly whetted our appetites for some bona fide Soul-o material, and today a newly release vaulted cut is just what Ab’s fans are hungry for.
“House of Sin” plays like the background music in horror films when the inevitably doomed character decides to walk down a long, meandering hallway. It’s dark and threatening, but it’s also a smoker’s anthem for those dark days when getting high leads to ominous thoughts, paranoia, and a feeling of impending danger. It’s a tale of a hotbox gone wrong, a study of local characters from the past who continue to haunt our contemporary memories. The apparent loosie features a guest appearance from King Rich and production from Pakkmusicgroup.
