“I just don’t want to be in no one’s shadow.” Ab-Soul, the rare rapper open to admitting that he’s the dismissed member of a crew. Rather than aimlessly complain, he’s dedicated himself to rapping his way out of being unsung. Between this and the previously leaked “Black Lip Bastard,” he’s on the verge of getting that four-figure solo show money. Rightfully so. Not much more that you could want from this. Jhene Aiko interpolating “Notorious Thugs,” rudebwoi buck-buck-buck chants, Danny Brown, great rapping, Jaleel White references. Dave Free on the beat — the man who made Blessed” – who also is the president/GM of TDE Managment. Vertical integration is the new black (hippy).
