Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul is still celebrating the release of his fourth studio album, Do What Thou Wilt, and now comes through with a video for “RAW (backwards),” the album opener and also the song that stirred up some controversy due to its blatant references to Jay Electronica.
“I was like a swami of Jay Electronica until he figured Dizzle wouldn’t admit that he would body him for a milli/I told Kenny keep quiet, I’ma get him/ We don’t need dirt on your hands getting the key to the city ya feel me/Hurts when your OG, who is supposed to be a G-O-D/ Is standing next to King Kunta feeling like Toby Moos what I gotta do boy? I’m just waiting on your cue to take him to ScHoolboy.”
Directed by frequent TDE collaborator A Plus Filmz, the video features Ab-Soul slaying the crowd at an underground function. Watch it above.
