“I just wanna be free, I ain’t finna be nobody’s shadow,” raps Ab-Soul, easily the most underrated member of the Black Hippy crew, which also includes Jay Rock and recent Interscope/Aftermath signess Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q.
On “Terrorist Threats,” the Top Dawg rapper links up with LA-based singer/songwriter Jhene Aiko and Danny Brown, the latter of whom shares Soul’s sentiment towards the end of the track. The sparse production, courtesy of Dave Free, allows for multiple changes in flow that sees both spitters switch between quick and cool, expressive and introspective. Plus, they completely own the beat. “Terrorist” is off a forthcoming Ab-Soul project. Check it out below. [NR]
