Ab-Soul and TDE CEO Anthony Tiffith work some things out over Twitter.
Top Dawg Entertainment’s stable of emcees is one of the best in the game. However, it can be tough to keep everyone happy with so many mouths to feed, so to speak. Ab-Soul is the only artist of the bunch who hasn’t released a critically-acclaimed and widely promoted album. His last project, These Days… came out after ScHoolboy Q’s widely popular Oxymoron but it didn’t receive nearly same amount of promotion. The same goes for Jay Rock’s 90059 and any of Kendrick Lamar’s albums.
Today, Ab-Soul’s frustrations with his relative anonymity spilled onto Twitter as he let loose a series of tweets. He thanks everyone who has “been supporting me LONGTERM,” and says “I’ll be ready when my #’s called.” If those first two tweets weren’t enough smoke, his next tweet saying “this bench is gettin’ warm as fucc tho mayne,” casts away any doubt about what the Black Lipped Bastard was tweeting about.
However, TDE has never been one to subtweet or be passive aggressive, so of course TDE President Anthony Tiffith called him out. He said “when I put u in the game u better be on fire nigga…” and cited Ab-Soul’s tweet. Ab-Soul responded in kind, saying he would be like the former 6th man of the year and prolific NBA Clippers scorer Jamal Crawford. But does the TDE CEO’s last tweet suggest that we may finally get a magnum opus from Ab-Soul?
