I am TERRIBLY late on this one... been so busy. Nonetheless, I've handpicked a couple of gems off the oh-so-obscure Ab-Soul's latest LP Control System. I highly recommend downloading the entire album, the production from Willie B, Dave Free, Sounwave, TaeBeast and engineer Ali is ground-breaking stuff. I've said this a thousand times, but TDE have some incredlble talent. For the simple fact that nobody sounds remotely like them in the industry at the moment.
A little less trippy than Schoolboy Q's album, which I sorta like, I enjoy Ab-Souls catchy ad-lib choruses. They stick in your head all day. Control System hit number one on iTunes in America this week aswell, a first for TDE. So kick back and enjoy the soultry sounds and flow of Ab-Soul.
