Ab-Soul- "ILLuminate" ft. Kendrick Lamar (Loved)

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Black Hippy crew member Ab-soul has been leaking a lot of songs from his upcoming album Control System, the latest being a track featuring Kendrick Lamar. On this song both of them show their lyrical prowess on the subject of how they make the music they want to make and what success means to them. Ab-soul has been showing with all of his recent releases an improved ability to create some dynamic wordplay in his songs, as well as a general improvement to his flow. Kendrick continues to kill every track he is featured on using some pretty intense wordplay of his own, as well as a gruff, focused vocal delivery that makes his lyrics hit much harder.

Control System is out May 11.
