I don’t think this really needs any kind of introduction. Chance drops off the video for Smoke Again which features Ab-Soul. Mr. Bennett looks to have a big 2013 and that journey continues tomorrow as he releases Acid Rap, which I’m sure will jam from the get-go.
Hey, man. This album is dope. It should have sold at least 100,000 copies like Macklemore and the rest of them. However, people don’t support this man like they should. People need to buy albums. For real. This is great stuff.
Back with the Illness? Oh, yes he is. Not even taking a break from tearing up the terrain with TDE, Ab-Soul makes sure that we all know that HE is the one that we ALL better be paying attention to. Who can argue? #ControlSystem damn near made it to a lot of people’s top 5′s for the year (if it has moved). If it wasn’t for his brethren Kendrick, he could have come close to album of the year.
Strong Arm Steady and Black Hippy over a beat by Statik Selektah is HIP HOP. Statik is pound for pound the best in the game to do it. This track knocks support the joint venture between Strong Arm and Statik “Stereotype” album.
How good is Ab Soul’s album? Many think it is one of the best albums to come out of TDE. There are people like me that think it is, to say the least, phenomenal. Dead End Hip Hop takes the time to construct, deconstruct, and analyze the album for what it is. No frills. No bull. Just pure understanding of the music.
I mean, we all want to be free. Also, I doubt anybody wants to be anyone’s chattel. Then again, so many are blind to the fact. Once Danny Brown started to bare his soul, I just knew. I knew this had to be pure crack for the ears. The video proves the same thing.
