Last month, Ab-Soul paid homage to Snoop Dogg in the video for his new single “Gotta Rap.” In the beginning of the music video, Soulo is seen rocking corn-rows, dark shades, a bullet proof vest, and some Marathon clothing apparel.
Ab-Soul stands on top of a building, rapping his heart out, much like Snoop Dogg did in the 1993 video for “Who Am I (What’s My Name)?” Later on, he’s seen spitting in an unknown Los Angeles neighborhood while the men around him partake in some of the hood’s favorite past-times.
“I like to call myself the God of rap/ But really I just gotta rap/ This a Dior doobie/ On the head of your cutie, moon signs when you call her back/ Do not disturb/ We looking for the smoke, not who got the herb/ I’m Top Dawg, you a copycat/ I’ma give this beat a heart attack,” he raps.
“Gotta Rap” is from his December 2022 project Herbet, which is also Ab Soul’s real name. The follow-up to his 2016 offering Do What Thou Wilt features guest appearances from Big Sean, Russ, Joey Bada$$, Jhené Aiko, SiR, Punch, Zacari, Fre$h, Ambré, ALEMEDA, and Lance Skiiiwalker.
So far in 2023, Top Dawg Entertainment has released just one project: Lance Skiiiwalker’s sophomore album Audiodidactic, which served as the follow-up to 2016’s Introverted Intuition.
