Ab-Soul Says He's Close To Leaking Album

Ab-Soul says he's growing "impatient" regarding his upcoming album release.

Ab-Soul posted a message to his Twitter followers yesterday (May 1) regarding his upcoming project.

"I'm this close to just leakin my shit like its a mixtape," Soul says in the Twitter update. 

When someone tells him to just "drop" the effort, Soul responds with the following: "im gettin very impatient shorty ma! young nigga tryinna move this dope!" 

In October 2013, Ab-Soul confirmed that he was finalizing work on the album. The project, which was originally believed to be titled Black Lip Pastor, has no title. 

In March 2014, Top Dawg announced that Soul's album will be released this year, along with other TDE projects. Top announced this and added "be patient" to the update.

  • TDE Niccas, From Best To Worst, And Why

    1 - Kendrick (Ain't no reason, he's just the best from his camp) 2 - Jay (Cause he from Nickerson Gardens bka MY HOOD) 3 - Q (The first wack nigga on the camp, no mic presence, gay ass voice, boring ass flow) 4 - This wack nigga (Ain't no reason, he's just the wackest from his camp)

      I bought Oxymoron when it came out. Thought it was wack and made a weed plate out of it. But you niggaz been calling Q wack so much I went back to listen to it and now I actually like it lol

      I agree with everything but Soul's placement. I'm not into all that third-eye shit honestly but he at least be above Q on there. He's talented and there's no denying that. He's got some of the meanest punchlines and entendres in the game. His flow and voice can get tired sometimes though, but he definitely better than Q.

      Kendrick is dope as hell but he used to be weak untill he "borrowed" of Ab soul and jay rock's style. grew intoo something inbetween dopeness

  • what

    (pretty much) everybody on this thread is only talking about sales. Like sales are the end all be all definition of what makes an album great...FOH!

  • drake runs rap

    no drake feature = flop and no sales

  • Robb

    IDK man.. sometimes i feel Ab-soul might leave top dawg ent... i heard he lives in NY, and he's been upset lately and i haven't seen him rockin with black hippy lately.. just when he performed druggy's wit hoes 3 in L.A. with Q

  • TRE

    Top Dawg already responded to that on twitter "I DARE A NIGGA ON MY TEAM TO LEAK HIS ALBUM"

    Soul aint hot in them streets sorry. Doesnt matter who's more talented between Soul and Q.....at the end of the day Q was more popular and was ready for mainstream. Ab-soul ISNT!

    "U the weakest one in your camp nicca" That would be Schoolboy Q.

    • Anonymous

      True, but when it comes to commercial potential, he's right behind Kendrick. They have what it takes to appeal for the mainstream audience, while both Soul (as a lyricists) and Jay Rock (as a gangsta rapper) are much more specific artists. So despite they have definitely more skill than Q, they won't sell near as much as him. Maybe Soul has a potential for one hit record, but that's it. (Yes, I know Jay Rock had "All My Life" with Weezy.)

      "lol u just another lame ass white kid who listens to hopsin and r.a. the rugged man" I am far from being white. You thinking being black somehow automatically gives you the sole right to criticize hip hop makes you one ignorant nicca. How old are you boi? I happen to know some white folks that breath hip hop and can tach you a thing or two. Simpleton a@# kid.

      ^ Did he really hurt your emotions like that? Damn. Go wipe the tears off your face and shut up, I can hear u crying from miles away.

    • Let's Decipher People Through Comments YAY!!!

      ^ you're pretty smart that you can decipher someone's race and listening preference through a two line comment on a message board. You should really consider joining the FBI with your detective skills since you're such an educated Asian American who listens to Lil Wayne and Future but has a secret passion for listening to Yung Berg in your tan Toyota Camry you bought in '02. Btw judging by your period placements it's easy to tell you're 2 weeks past due for your yearly physical but since you play baseball you should be in peak shape so just go get it!

      if you really believe he is the weakest, then you do not know hip hop. It's either that or you haven't listen to any of his shit. Period.

    Dear DX, If I wanted to know what ab-soul was saying on twitter, I would have a twitter account and be following him. This is not journalism by any stretch. Thanks, Ex - DX Fan

      anonymous geeks like you don't have twitter accounts because you are afraid to show your white acne covered faces.

    • soulo

      what about if i dont care what soul says on twitter usually but i do care if he's gonna drop his album. then this is important.

  • SMH

    lol you people who comment on hiphopdx make me sick, you niqqas will go on about how much you against the illuminati and consumerism then next minute you will be dissing rapppers because they didn't sell a certain amount and therefore appeal to the masses... hypocrites

  • Not Impressed

    Oh, so he must mean he's close to be sued by his label. Bright one, he is. Regardless of how this comes out, I will not be picking it up. This is the kind of music I wouldn't download if you paid me. I can't wait for this whole post Kendrick Lamar hype to die down so we can stop hearing about these terrible rappers. I'm not impressed

    • jnioerbn

      "Not impressed" i agree that there aren't many good major label rappers out there but hpw can you not respect Kendrick Lamar, jay rock, ab soul and Isiah rashad if you are a fan of real hip hop, at leas they actually spit hard and put effort into their rhymes which is somehing we havent seen in the mainstream for a long time

    • drizzy!

      Logic, he's certainly better than Schoolboy Q.

      I will agree with you on Willie The Kid. Dude been dropping dope tracks for a while but is one of the most slept on rappers out there.

      "Drake, Meek, Wale, Sean, Minaj and J Cole are all better than TDE.' Some geek said Wale and Big Sean are better than TDE. HAH.

      "1. Jay Electronica (Universal) 2. Willie The Kid (Warner Bros.) 3. Charles Hamilton (Was dropped from Interscope, but still more creative and better. Killed Kendrick in a cypher with a rhyme he made on the spot) 4. K'La The Lyricist (Def Jam)" these niggas have no hype

      ok then, name 5 major label rappers who have come out in he past few years who are better than the TDE boys????

    • Anonymous

      who you listenin to nigga

    • Not Impressed

      @jnioerbni So they're good because there's no one better signed to a major? I'm sorry, being the best of the worst doesn't make you dope. Even if there are no other major label rappers better then them, as you say, that doesn't make their music good, it just means the labels haven't picked up anyone better yet. Couldn't get to 5, but I tried to name some rappers anyway. 1. Jay Electronica (Universal) 2. Willie The Kid (Warner Bros.) 3. Charles Hamilton (Was dropped from Interscope, but still more creative and better. Killed Kendrick in a cypher with a rhyme he made on the spot) 4. K'La The Lyricist (Def Jam) I'm not impressed

      ^^nah thats some "i think i know what i am talking about but have absolutely no clue" type of talk. every artist is different and needs particular needs met. if stones throw can release projects than tde can drop soul's shit. i know i want new soul and would buy tickets to him live if he had newer music

    • lol

      Uhm, no he doesn't. They tryna release actual albums, not fucking iTunes albums anymore like some lame irrelevant ass niggas. So because of that Soulo can't put an album out since he doesn't have a deal with a major label. Plus I'm pretty sure they want to have a charting single and I'm pretty sure that if Q couldn't get Man of The Year or What They Want to chart then Soul couldn't really make anything that would chart nearly as much as Collard Greens did.

    • Jay Rock NIKKAH

      Yes he does.
