Ab-Soul Speaks On Meeting Nas, Says They'll Probably Link Up "Somewhere Along The Line"

Ab-Soul confident that he(TM)ll cross paths with Nas again, speaks on his "Double Standards" record.

TDE rapper Ab-Soul sparked a bit of excitement among Hip Hop heads at the top of December when he posted a picture of himself and fellow emcee Nas on his Instagram page. Rumors of a possible collaboration between the two artists were instantaneous and during an interview with HardKnock.TV, Ab-Soul explained how exactly the picture came about.

While Ab-Soul did reveal that the picture was merely thanks to him having a fan moment he seemed confident that both he and Nas will eventually cross paths again.

“That was just me sneaking backstage man. Sneaking a picture in with him. I don’t think he’s really heard of me in particular. That was just me being a fan,” the California rapper explained. “Just having an opportunity to snap a flick with him…I wanted to if I could just shake Nas’ hand and just give him my peace and that was enough for me. I’m sure we’ll definitely link up somewhere along the line.” 

Prior to speaking on his Nas flick, Soulo discussed double standards among men and women and his Control System record of the same name.

“That is the story of my generation. That’s just the story. It wasn’t particularly mine or particularly my homies,” said Ab-Soul. “It was really – that is the story, in a nutshell. I tried to narrow it down to that in particular. It’s cool for the guys to have a lot of girls, even more in a lot of cases through the eyes of the girls. It becomes a challenge to just be the only one type thing. To whereas the girls, if their track record is high it lowers their status in a lot of cases. But that was just a story that I find interesting. I don’t know how I feel about it exactly. I don’t know if it’s right or wrong. If it’s necessary or whatever. It’s just a very interesting…paradox, if you will.”

    "I have a theory. Everytime a woman sleeps with alot of men, shes considered a slut. But if a man sleeps with alot of women, hes considered a stud. And people say this is unfair. Nah. It's completely fair, and I'll tell you why. Its fucking easy to be a slut. It's fucking hard to be a stud. To be a stud you have to be charming, witty, good looking, with nice shoes and a fake job. To be a slut, you just have to be... there. I've met fat ugly sluts. There are no fat ugly studs." - Jim Jeffries think that pretty much sums up your dillema Soulo

    Nas is the most overrated bum of all time. One classic and countless coasters. Only delusional underdog stans think he's even remotely close to GOAT status.

    "Nas = your favorite rapper's favorite rapper... dude has vexed and/or received respect from the best of the best..." He's nobody's favorite rapper. They usually cite Illmatic cause they're told too by their label. Nas is washed up, broke and delusional. Naming your album Life is Good despite the fact you owe the government a grip of money? lol Not even Donald Trump would display that kind of arrogance.

      Yeah right. He is a bum. In which kinda world do you live in? Calling somebody a bum who made one the greatest albums of all time (Illmatic), who made one of the most creative albums of all time (It Was Written) is just ridiculous. Who bodied Jay-Z? (Ask Papoose, ask Jadakiss, ask Styles) If he is a bum like you said, then tell me one thing: Why does he get so much props? Dude, you better listen to his whole collection!

    The Anti-Nas coalition is back at is again... yeah you morons Nas is so overrated that your favorite rapper [insert name ______ Ab-Soul?] is openly admitting to riding his jock as a fanboy while recognizing that Godson probably doesn't know who he is... wait does that make Ab-Soul a Nas stan too? Nas = your favorite rapper's favorite rapper... dude has vexed and/or received respect from the best of the best... he irked Pac, Big, Jay, was given MAJOR props from Pun, all of Wu tang, Rakim, Kool G... is widely recognized as Top 5 DOA by other legendary MCs like Scarface, Em, AZ Man I like Ab-soul too... but he faggots have to disrespect legendary MCs who get idolized by your favorite rappers to make yourself feel justified in hating one in favor of the other... can you like more than one MC at a time? Anyways I will take the opinions of YOUR FAVORITE RAPPERS over their dumb ass fans any day of the week... and you can very strongly argue that Nas is the GOAT btw

      Yo thats like one troll hating on Nas. One niggas having a conversation with himself. Don't pay attention to these niggas they just trolling.

      "Nas is the goat" says who ?? just because some "legendary" rappers gave props to Nas does not mean their words are taken for granted yes Nas can rhyme. yes he got a flow. and yes he might have a classic or two under his belt. but negro please, there are other mc's who share the same legacy. when will yall understand that this "goat" status is a matter of opinions. to each people his own opinion bout who he considers the goat in this rap ish. don't let the medias fool you with their magazine covers and ratings upon an mc to lead your opinion bout who's the greatest especially when everybody knows they have ties with major labels to put their artists under the spot to increase the sells and glorify their career if you think nas is the greatest it is your right based upon your tastes. and it's cool. but don't bash on someone who does not share your view.
