Why You Should Love TDE’s Ab-Soul
His lyrics show his complex way of thinking.
When you listen to the music, it’s obvious that there’s more to him than money, hoes and clothes. Ab-Soul is an introvert and uses the music to make us analyze double standards and societal ills instead of just turning up. On songs like “Nibiru,” he stands firm as a believer in the doomsday event where “Planet X” collides with Earth. On “Almost There,” he urges people to apply strategy and vision to achieving what they want to accomplish. He’s not deep all the time though. He shows a more playful side on “Mixed Emotions,” his ode to the trippy concoction lean. Who doesn’t love a MC that can make you think and chase your dreams?
