New Music: Ab-Soul - "ILLuminate" (Featuring Kendrick Lamar)


Ab-Soul LP Control System

Black Hippy rapper Ab-Soul drops another stellar track from his new album Control System, which drops this Friday (May 11). The Skhye Hute-produced track features a slew of hip-hop quotables from both Ab-Soul and K.Dot.

Ab-Soul's spits on his second verse, "I use to want to rap like Jay-Z / Now I feel like I can run laps around Jay-Z / Now you haven't seen nothin' this nasty / B.I.G. and 'Pac got it commin' when I pass, too." Whoa.

Peep the the interesting cover art above of Ab-Soul's album. It's a Jesus fish placed into the center of the ten-pronged structure of the Sephirot, which is the 10 metaphysical attributes expressed in the Kabbalah (also known as the "Illuminate"). Yep, Ab-Soul is not your average rapper. Check out the track below.
