According to Vibe.com, Soulo praised the group for being “the most rapping-est” artists out and was later asked about the possibility of a battle between Slaughterhouse and those in Black Hippy.
“Them Slaughterhouse niggas are the best rappers for sure…The most rapping-est…Them niggas rap…I’m with it! I told all of them I’m with it,” Ab-Soul said when asked about the possibility of a battle between Slaughterhouse and Black Hippy.
And in regards to his battle with Daylyt on his newly-released album These Days…, Soul says Daylyt’s “electricity” and “battle stance took” the win.
“Battle rapping is like boxing,” he said. “I smoke a lot of weed, drink and do all these things. Daylyt is clean. He keeps electricity. He’s like a boxer. He’s charged. So, when you’re listening to the battle whether you dig my bars or not I feel personally his electricity is what took it. His battle stance took it versus my cool words.”
During his CRWN interview, Soul explained the inspiration behind the cover art for These Days… He revealed that Jesus is one of “the most popular characters these days.” The Black Hippy lyricist also spoke on KRS-One’s influence and the Bronx, New York rapper making Hip Hop a religion.
“Jesus has been the most popular character these days– these days in music,” Soul said, according to Vibe.com. “I think I been hearing the Gods are back and all these type of religious references and what not. Yeezus…Jesus is probably the most famous man in the world…KRS-One made hip hop a religion. It’s intelligent movement. To be hip is to be intelligent. Hip Hop is a movement, intelligent movement. That’s KRS-One. So I’m still trying to push that issue.”
In addition to discussing his These Days… cover art, KRS-One influence, a potential Slaughterhouse versus Black Hippy battle, Ab-Soul also discussed Nas, Jay Electronica, and more during his CRWN interview.
