New Ab-Soul – “Absolute Assassin”
Soul Assassins Radio have been kicking around the hip hop scene for a while now, bringing listeners the best of “underground” hip hop. I put parentheses around underground because in the age of the internet, the underground in a classical sense doesn’t really exist anymore. Until the past few years though, the underground had a particular sound, punctuated by the blunted backpacker crowd and East Coast street rappers. Recently, Ab-Soul stopped by the station to spit a “freestyle” over some buttery production from the questionably named Worldwardrew. The abstract asshole is at his most grounded on “Absolute Assassin”, rapping within himself although he still manages to reference new world order and throw in the double-take worthy “so clean me and Jesus could share a bath”.
