First single from Trouble Man.
I always mention this album and people give me the most clueless look every. Actually, I don’t expect anyone to even know about this album anymore. It’s the only release from Cannibal Ox and it’s eleven years old (today).
So why should you even care?
Smh…I just…I just…I…ok nevermind
Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock for the last two years, there’s no way you could ignore Top Dawg Entertainment’s transition from underground to mainstream. After earning a distribution deal through Interscope/Aftermath, the future is bright for them.
The members are Jay Rock and Schoolboy Q, who serve as the street presence. Kendrick Lamar is the glue that holds the “Black Hippy” collective together. And last, Ab-Soul…basically the anomaly. Unlike the other 3 members of this posse, he is from Carson, California, not LA. And if you asked anyone about his music prior to this, they would surely tell you “yea, he’s cool” . That’s it.
After previously checking out two mixtapes and an album, I still felt like I didn’t know the guy. Well after pressing play on controlsystem, this soon change. Not only is this album a realization of self, but it is also a formal introduction to the listener of who Ab-Soul REALLY is. And that’s what we’ve been waiting for.
Full releases from Ms. Banks are finally on the way. This EP arrives May 29th and Broke with Expensive Taste the album arrives in August.
