Who Is Ab-Soul?

Political Views

Ab-Soul: “I think the music that we've been listening to is just getting real monotonous, man. Honestly. I just want to open up a few more doors, rise a few more questions. Make things a little more interesting. I know it's a lot of people who are probably bored with the subject matter of today. So we're just here to fill that void. This is a great political time.

"I'm not going to sit up here like a big-ass conspiracy theorist or whatnot, but if you look into a lot of the things that are going on, you'll find a lot of inconsistencies. That's just from what I've found from looking into things. It's important because politics, that's the biggest production in American history. But that's just me. I could be wrong. They could be very nice guys. Maybe not.

 

I’ll give you an example of inconsistencies: The monetary system. I think dollar bills are like 75 percent linen, 25 percent cotton. So you've got linen and cotton. And our biggest bill is the $100 dollar bill. Now I could go buy a pair of linen shorts for $60. But there is more linen and cotton in the pair of shorts than in the $100 dollar bill. That's inconsistent with the value.

"That's inconsistent with the value. It's not based on that at all. But that's the example I like to use. Our concept of value is completely, almost completely eradicated. But that's just me. I just think the whole thing—they all are just playing charades, in all honesty.

"I don't want anybody to think I'm speaking fact. Just an opinion. I'm just sharing some shit, a few things that I've observed. I want people to react to it, explain to me why that may not be so. Agree with me. I just want people to talk about it and ask some questions.

"I'm done with voting. I voted for Barack the first time. I thought it was real exciting like everybody else did. Got caught up in the hype. I'm done man. I'm just keeping my eyes open to the best of my ability. I'm just not too sure about it, man. I'ma stay out of that. Stay back and watch what happens. But if I were to vote, I would for sure vote for Barack Obama. For sure.”
