After a long process of baby steps, Ab-Soul’s much-anticipated DWTW album is set to arrive Friday (December 9), the TDE rapper posted on Twitter today (December 5).
Soulo shared the news along with the DWTW cover art and a new track, “Threatening Nature” produced by PakkMusicGroup. The other songs to drop from the project so far are “Huey Knew” and “Braille” with Dreamville’s Bas.
The most recent status of DWTW was that Top Dawg was waiting on Ab-Soul and MixedByAli to finish mastering the project. And now the job is done.
This will be the follow-up to the Carson, California rapper’s These Days…, which dropped in June of 2014.
TDE has been dominating 2016 with four releases so far, Kendrick Lamar’s untitled unmastered., ScHoolboy Q’s Blank Face LP, Isaiah Rashad’s The Sun’s Tirade and Lance Skiiiwalker’s Introverted Intuition.
