Ab-Soul and Kendrick Lamar are two of the most frantic and inventive minds in rap, and it’s pretty awesome that they’re both from the same Black Hippy crew. On “ILLuminate,” a song from Ab-Soul’s 2012 album Control System, both of them teamed up. And they both show up, in different forms, in the song’s video, which takes place in an apocalyptic post-SOPA future where roving bands of youth have to find inspiration wherever they can. Fortunately, in this particular future, Ab-Soul vinyl is about as easy to come by as it is now. Fredo Tovar and Scott Fleishman direct; watch it below.
Control System is out now on TDE.
