Ab-Soul discusses his new track "W.W.S.D." with HNHH.

Ab-Soul's currently criss-crossing the continent on his "These Days" tour, and while he was in the DMV, our very own Baker caught up with the TDE rapper for a quick interview. Soulo spoke on his new track "W.W.S.D.," his love for DeJ Loaf's "Try Me," and his fashion sense.

Right off the bat, Ab explains the genesis of "W.W.S.D.," a new one-off that samples Jackson Browne's '70s hit "These Days." Soulo says he was outside of a video shoot when a member of the camera crew approached and inquired about the title of his then-upcoming album. When Ab-Soul said it was "These Days," the fan asked if he had heard Browne's song of the same name, which he hadn't. When he got home, he listened, and liked it so much that he decided to sample it on a future release.

Later on, Soulo calls DeJ Loaf's breakout hit "Try Me" the "theme song of this tour" -- perhaps we can expect a remix soon?
