As an artist, it’s got to be a beautiful thing when there’s a rock-solid team around you, that can and will pave way for your success. However, in the case of Ab-Soul, the Carson MC is talented enough in his own right where he could’ve knocked down doors without his fellow Black Hippies. But, it sure can’t hurt to be feeding off the current TDE tank being driven by K-Dot, Q and Jay Rock – all of whom are making the mainstream rounds with their offbeat brand of street-influenced intuitions.After getting set up to carry the torch, it’s Soulo’s turn to helm the machine with his latest release, Control System.
More than likely, you’ve already been zoning to tracks like the Danny Brown-assisted “Terrorist Threats” and the haunting “SOPA” with his homie ScHoolboy. And, when the Black Lip Bastard and Kendrick started unraveling on “ILLuminate,” your anticipation undoubtedly reached it’s peak for this mainstream introduction of sorts for the MC who both enlightened minds and destroyed mics on the outro to Section.80. Or, if you’ve just been knocked out cold for the past few months and wondering what’s worth listening to after being disappointed by the redundancy of Rich Forever, here’s your answer.
The full stream of the latest project from “Top Dog’s Under Dawg” is below, which can be followed by checking out our discussion with Ab about his come up and the creative process behind Control System. Then, once you’ve educated yourself, head over to iTunes to support in full.
