Soulo ho3! This was my first Ab Soul album and till this day it still remains my fav from him. In my opnion, Ab soul is the 2nd best TDE rapper (Kendrick obviously takes the crown). He's definitely underrated and has not gotten the recognition he deserves.

Fav songs: Track Two, Terrorist Threats, Illuminate, Empathy
Least fav: A rebellion, Showin Love
