Ab-Soul - These Days

L.A.’s Black Hippy crew boasts superstars like Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, but Ab-Soul, the permanently zooted conspiracy theorist of the crew, might best embody its place in the rap ecosystem, keeping his music simultaneously bugged-out and guttural at all times. Today, he releases These Days…, his follow-up to the 2012 album Control System. He’s been steadily sharing tracks for months, and the LP includes plenty of them: “Dub Sac,” “Tree Of Life,” “These Days,” “Closure,” the Action Bronson/Asaad collab “Stigmata,” the Schoolboy Q collab “Hunnid Stacks.” The album also has appearances from Kendrick, Rick Ross, Danny Brown, Jhené Aiko, Jay Rock, SZA, Lupe Fiasco, and others, and guys like J. Cole and Mac Miller step in to produce tracks. Stream the whole LP below.

  1. I really want to love this record– Control System was incredible! But it feels a little dumbed down to me. His wordplay, the beats, everything. There are a few standout tracks (These Days and Kendrick’s Interlude) but maybe after some time some of the weaker ones will grow on me.
