Ab-Soul’s Control System releases this Friday, 5/11, and as if I needed anything else to build up my anticipation, he just dropped this brand new track called “ILLuminate” with a feature from fellow Black Hippy, Kendrick Lamar.
Ab-Soul has been putting out some of the most consistently creative, high quality music, and like ScHoolBoy Q, I have a feeling Control System is going to be a classic. “ILLuminate” is incredible. Ab-Soul is as impressive as ever, Kendrick is… well, Kendrick, and that “ADHD” sample is beautiful.
No one is doing it better than TDE. Not only do they have some of the best hip-hop artists alive, but each one of them supports the other and pushes their work as if it was their own. ScHoolBoy said Control System is going to be better than his own HnC and Kendrick’s Section.80, which is saying something because those are two of my top five favorite albums from the past two years.
Enjoy “ILLuminate,” and be ready for Friday.
