A lot of the time, when one artist blows up, he or she tries to put his or her friends on. Most of the time, it doesn't work out very well. This isn't the case with Top Dawg Entertainment. Kendrick Lamar may be the frontrunner from the West Coast crew, but others like Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul are showing that Kendrick's not the only one with something to offer.

Ab-Soul has just released his solo album, Control System. It offers features from Kendrick, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Danny Brown and more. Stream the entire 17-track project below.

If you like what you hear, purchase the album on iTunes.
