Hmmm. I'm not sure if I like Ab-Soul that much. He comes off as a dude that TRIES to come off as this smart/cerebral artist through titles (example: 'Pineal Gland), but when you actually listen, dude isn't saying much. I listened to the tracks posted in the thread and they were 'ehhh'. (Aside from Kendrick rippin' sh*t, of course). I'ma skip on this and Ab. If somebody can toss me his best, illest track, do so.. just hit my "prop" button so I know what to look out for.

Peace.
I think he know what he talking about but he use the Titles and make songs metaphorically about the titles......I.E Bohemian Grove......obviously he know the knowledge. But it wud be boring to hear tons of conspiracy raps...so he take the titles and make dope songs and at the same time listeners gonna go right to google and research. So i think he's doing it in own way...dropping jewels i mean.

Gave it a 4 because I cant call it a classic, but to me its a great album on par with "Section 80". TDE keeps dropping quality titles and this one is no exception. I think Ab does a little bit of everything on this and the TDE producers have taken elements of what sounds to me like the Rza, mid 90's west coast alt hip hop, screw and jazz and gave Ab a melancholic back drop for him to run wild on.
I feel like I get his sense of humor and that he is honest in his music. He has shown steady improvement between LT1 and Control System. This is going to get a lot of rotation time for me in the next few months.

"Double Standards" is a great song from the production and by just what he is saying...I love how it samples "Power"

I agree with you, and only gave him a 4 cause he made me cry thinking bout his girl. I told him I don't like to be sad when I listen to music, but when Lori died that really hurt. RIP Aloriana Johnson

Ab-Soul really surprised me with this album. I love how he's spitting real sh*t, like Bohemian Grove and SOPA, causing n*ggas to start learning about the world around them. Best music I heard all year. 4.5 out of 5

Best album I have heard this year.

His flow, delivery, and passion/emotion on the mic is top notch. The production is amazing and the features are special.

5/5 BLACK HIPPY>>>>>>>>>>

I've been bumping this for like a week now and yall who said you don't like it, what do you like? I mean honestly, if you know anything of music, when you listen to The Book Of Soul, that song is so ill. Kinda makes you teary when he talks about his relationship with Alori. Then that Illuminate track, mannnnnnnnnn. This was my first Ab-Soul album, I always heard individual tracks, but I'm definitely a fan after that. 5 star

they are getting their Jordan/Pippen on in the rap game.

Black Hippy is the best crew out and imo its not even close to being close.
