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:
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 whenJ. 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.
