Ab-Soul is a rapper from Carson, CA who is affiliated with the indie label TopDawg-Entertainment (TDE). He is also member of the hip-hop quartet Black Hippy alongside his TDE fellows Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and ScHoolboy Q. Ab-Soul is the only rapper of the group who has not been raised in the projects of Los Angeles, he grew up in fair conditions.
Ab-Soul is best known for his trippy, druggy and introspective yet philosphical lyrics and his unconventional flow in addition to his extravagant appearence. ScHoolboy Q called him a walking dictionary in interviews for his witty use of unfrequent or technical terms.
He has released four full-length projects so far:
LongTerm 2: Lifestyles Of The Broke And Almost Famous
Control System is the first record which Soulo considers a "real" album even though his previous releases didn't really feel like mixtape since they all had TDE inhouse producton featured. What this album differs in, though, is focus on introspective and socially aware lyrics. The death of his former girlfriend and singer Alori Joh highly influnced this album. The song "The Book of Soul" is dedicated to her.
