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.
VERY well said...


i gave this sh*t a 5/5, i consider it a classic b/c i can listen to it straight through, no skips, and i know later on down the line i'll still be bumpin this...

he has a good ear for beats, he's clever with the lines, and knows how to put a song together... and all the features were top notch...

fave song by far is Terrorist Threats... that sh*t is fire...

now all we need is a Black Hippy album to make the cypher complete...


damn, who gave it a weed plate rating???

^ Glad you bumped the thread up, homie. EYE was one of them dudes speakin' reckless on how 'wack' this album was and how Ab came off as a pseudo-intellect, but uhhhh, I have it a fair listen and I take that back. So much so that I'll qualify this at the one of the top 5 releases of the year (somewhere next to Joey's '1999' mixtape).

I was basing Ab off a homie and not Ab as an individual. My homie rocked a song that covered the pineal gland it in all made sense, went into perfect depth; taught you something. I felt like Ab was just throwing relevant terms around but wasn't really saying much (because of that); but uhhh, all-in-all tape is beautiful.

I'm still not sure how my dude was able to get out 'The Book of Soul'; I feel like had that been me I would've broke down and not have been able to complete it. Can't wait for the next project.

Listened to this and GKMC back-to-back yesterday and... I like this album a lot more. I might be in the minority, but idc. I enjoy a lot more songs on this than Kendrick's album.

Coming back to this album because it is year end and I have to say I like it more than when I originally posted about it. For me personally it is my favorite album of the year and it held up for me against other fav releases from Nas, Skyzoo, Lupe, Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Saigon and Big Boi.

I must be the only person that doesn't get the hype behind this whole crew. They have some good tracks here and there. But overall I'm bored and underwhelmed. Not saying they aren't talented but the hype seems a bit out of control. I enjoyed Nas, T.I., Big Boi, Lupe, and even Dice Raw's mixtape far more than anything else these guys have put out. I'll give it another listen....
