As Above, So Below is Ankhlejohn's fifth 2020 project, his second full-length after the excellent April-release The Face Of Jason.

Ankhlejohn released a benchmark album with VAN Ghost, his 2018 collaboration with unsung producer Big Ghost LTD - one of the best Hip Hop albums released that year (https://hiphopgoldenage.com/list/top-40-hip-hop-albums-2018/). As Above, So Below is produced in its entirety by Odd Future affiliated rapper/producer Navy Blue. Like Big Ghost LTD's beats did on VAN ... read more
