The time has come as Ab-Soul has finally released his long-awaited studio album Do What Thou Wilt.

Within moments of the album's release, the internet erupted with reactions and questions regarding his lyrics on the project's opener "RAW (backwards)" where Soul delivers some very pointed lyrics toward Jay Electronica and his commentary about Kendrick Lamar. Soulo raps:

"I was like a swami of Jay Electronica until he/Figured Dizzle wouldn't admit that he would body him for a milli/I told Kenny keep quiet, I'ma get him/We don't need dirt on your hands getting the key to the city ya feel me/Hurts when your OG, who is supposed to be a G-O-D/Is standing next to King Kunta feeling like Toby/Moos what I gotta do boy?/I'm just waiting on your cue to take him to school boy!"

As you can observe, there's no mincing of words from Ab-Soul as he stands tall, defending his TDE family. But this type of honesty on records seems to often get funneled into talks of beef or disrespect. We saw it just last week when J. Cole premiered his song "False Prophets." And again late last night when DWTW dropped. 

So we spoke with Ab about his motivation behind the lines and his current feelings towards Jay Elec. Peep the video above.
