Ab-Soul Spells It Out So MCs Understand They Can’t See Him Lyrically (Audio)
Ab-Soul is ramping up in a major way. After a lengthy hiatus, the Carson, California MC appears to be putting the pedal down towards his fourth solo album. In July of this year, Soulo blessed Bas’s “Housewives (Remix)” an a la carte breakaway from the Too High To The Riot LP. Four months later, J. Cole’s Dreamville MC returns the favor for “Braille.”
The song features some screwed vocals over a loping beat. Soul leads the charge with a message that promotes originality. “You ain’t never seen it done like this” yields the title. Bas follows with a quick-strike verse of his own, before the host plays clean-up as the track changes. These are two confident wordsmiths on two of the most talent-stacked, rapper-run labels in Hip-Hop. “Is you dope or is you just doin’ dope?” asks the Black Hippy lyricist, as he aims to change the conversation in Hip-Hop.
Details surrounding Ab’s upcoming work are slim to none at the moment. The anticipation, however, is strong.
