Ab-Soul has revealed the cover art for his upcoming project Control System, releasing May 11th.

Revealing the cover on Twitter, the Black Hippy member also released his new single “ILLuminate” featuring Kendrick Lamar and produced by Skhyehutch.

Kendrick Lamar recently spoke on the importance of Ab-Soul’s project to the Black Hippy movement, explaining how it will complete the puzzle for anyone who hasn’t yet been sold on TDE.

“May 11th, Control System, Ab-Soul. Once you get that piece, you’ll really understand this TDE thing,” said Kendrick. “Then, you might be fortunate to get the Black Hippy that everything’s talking about. That’s our prized possession, that’s our baby. We have fun with that, and I don’t know. Once you throw the music out, people start putting the numbers behind it. We want that to be organic… We got music, though. A lot of music.”
