Beat The Case / / / Straight Crooked
Ab-Soul Feat. ScHoolboy Q
Ab-Soul has put his love and paranoia into his new album Do What Thou Wilt. With features from Mac Miller, Bas, Rapsody, and more, the black lip bastard is ready to break through to a hiiigher level.
Ab-Soul Feat. Zacari
We’re just hours away from the release of Ab-Soul’s long awaited #DWTW album, but before it drops at midnight, the TDE spitter decides to share one last leak ahead of time called “Raw (Backwards)” featuring Zacari. Following up yesterday's "D.R.U.G.S," take a listen to The Juice Of All Trades-produced cut and let us know what you think. Check back later tonight for the rest of #DWTW.
Ab-Soul is about to drop his new album DWTW this Friday, but he's making sure that fans have something to chew on in the days leading up to it. Today, he's shared the video for a new song called "D.R.U.G.S." which is about exactly what it sounds like. The black and white video is as intoxicating as the subject matter, while Ab-Soul manipulates his vocals and muses on the dangers of substance abuse as well as his vices. His declaration of "I love drugs," seems like it should be taken with a grain of salt -- not a glamorization but a reality.
Catapulting himself back into the rap syndicate limelight, Black Hippy underdog Ab-Soul has released a new single from his upcoming LP DWTW. The song is called "Threatening Nature," and Soulo flexes his typical multilayered bars atop of a menacing instrumental as paranoid as the rapper's darkest theories. Give the track a listen, and sleep with the lamp on.
Rapsody Feat. Ab-Soul
Rapsody continues to keep the new music rolling. After hitting us with “Fire” last week & “Mad” few hours ago, the Jamla Records first lady decides to come through just hours later and share her second song of the day called “2:00 AM” featuring TDE lyricist Ab-Soul.
Ab-Soul Feat. Bas
As he promised, Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith has released another song from Ab-Soul's anticipated album DWTW: "Braille."
Ab-Soul Feat. Da$h
Ab-Soul has been relatively quiet for the majority of 2016, jumping on a couple features for Danny Brown’s “Really Doe” & Bas’ remix of “Housewives” to name a few, but it looks like the drought is coming to an end.
Really Doe (CDQ)
Danny Brown Feat. Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Earl Sweatshirt
UPDATE: Official version has been added.A few hours after sharing a snippet of "Really Doe" on Instagram, Danny Brown premiered the track on Peter Rosenberg's HOT 97 radio show late Sunday night. By the good graces of Jah, the song features not only Brown, but Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Earl Sweatshirt, all of whom attack the left-field, bell-driven beat from a different angle.
Bas Feat. Ab-Soul
Dreamville rapper Bas is currently on tour with labelmate Cozz, duo EarthGang, and Ron Gilmore; they all just passed through NYC this week. Taking a quick break from tour promotion, Bas kicks off our weekend on a high note, with a new verse from Ab-Soul on the official remix of his "Housewives" record.
THat Part (Black Hippy Remix)
ScHoolboy Q Feat. Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Jay Rock
Schoolboy Q’s highly anticipated sophomore album is just minutes away from arriving, but before it does, the TDE rapper decided to share a new Black Hippy remix of his Kanye West-assisted single “THat Part” first. Leaving Kanye’s verse out however, Q, Kendrick, Ab-Soul & Jay Rock all lay down their respective verses over the reworked, Cardo & Cubeatz-produced beat. And of course, K. Dot unbiasedly takes the crown with one nasty-ass verse. Take a listen and let us know how it compares to the OG version?
Illest Nigga Ever
Kush Kelz Feat. Ab-Soul
New Jersey rapper and orange soda merchant Kush Kelz is gearing up for the July release of a new EP called I Think The Neighbors Know. Today, he debuts EP single "Illest Nigga Ever" in an HNHH premiere. Produced by Myles William, "Illest Nigga Ever" is a high-grade banger that features a quality verse from Ab-Soul. Kelz explained how he linked up with Ab-Soul in an email to HNHH:
House Of Sin
Ab-Soul Feat. King Rich
Today we’ve got an previously unreleased track from Pakk Music Group, "House of Sin." The track features King Rich, and the two emcees each get an extended verse on a track that features no chorus. Pakk Music has put together a tense beat featuring some minor keyboard work, but is carried but high pitched synths that would sound at home in a horror flick right before someone gets a knife in the back.
Kevo Hendricks Feat. Ab-Soul & Kenhood
Kevo Hendricks, formerly known as Kevo Da Kid, makes a very worthy return today with the premiere of "2tomorrow," featuring Ab-Soul and Kenhood.
Shadow Of Death
Jay Rock Feat. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q & Ab-Soul
We're just hours away from the release of Jay Rock's 90059, and to prepare you for Rock's second studio album, we're taking it back to 2010, when TDE was just starting to make waves in Southern Cal.
Jay Rock Feat. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q & Ab-Soul
After much speculation, Jay Rock's album finally has a solid release date; tomorrow. Actually, TDE's CEO hopped on twitter to say that the album would arrive a bit early, rather than Midnight he says it'll be available at 9 PM tonight. That's not so far away, but before then, we've got one of the most anticipated records off the album, the Black Hippy collaboration "Vice City."
All You Need
Statik Selektah Feat. Action Bronson, Ab-Soul & Elle Varner
Statik Selektah's new song "All You Need" feat. Action Bronson, Ab-Soul, and Elle Varner is third in a string of dope AF singles off his upcoming album Lucky 7, the first two being "Beautiful Life" feat.
We haven't heard from Ab-Soul in months, but today, he leaked "47 Bars" to show fans he's still in the game. This is far from a mere throwaway, though. There are some genius rhymes sprinkled throughout, and Ab has something to say. The beat is a cosmic mind-melter from the always-reliable Alchemist.
Top Of The Diamond
Bad Lucc Feat. Problem, Ab-Soul & Punch
The Diamond Lane crew is going hard today, with Problem about to drop a mixtape this afternoon, and now a loose joint from Bad Lucc. This one serves as a reminder that Diamond Lane is prepping a compilation album, titled Diamond Lane America, due out this spring. Despite having a solid line-up and production from League of Starz, this one won't be on the final album.
They. Resurrect. Over. New.
Lupe Fiasco Feat. Ab-Soul & Troi
We have two big album releases happening today, Joey Bada$$'s B4.DA.$$ as well as Lupe Fiasco's last LP on Atlantic Tetsuo & Youth.
fR€$H aka SHORT DaWG Feat. Ab-Soul
fR€$H aka SHORT DaWG recently put his NoDOZ mixtape on pause to deliver fans a warm-up effort first: Drank Sinatra & The Scripts. The project is entirely produced by Cardo and Sledgren, so you know the beats will be on point. After giving us the first leak off the project with "Cop Cars," SHORT DaWG continues to impress with the premiere of yet another smooth leak, "Addiction," featuring frequent collaborator Soulo.
