Ab-Soul-Black Lip Bastard Remix ft. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock Video

The huge posse cut from Ab-Soul’s recent (and very enjoyable) Control System album, with his TDE labelmates all coming through to help Ab-Soul out.

The sombre and relatively stripped back production on this creates a great environment for the TDE crew to flex their rapping muscles. Kendrick opens up with a brash and cocky verse, Soulo follows up with a decent verse and anthemic bridge/hook, before ScHoolboy comes through with the highlight verse, adding tons of emphasis to his raps by switching up and dialing back the aggressiveness alternately. Ab comes back in for another verse to stay front-of-mind, before Jay closes things off in the gruff tones and intense manner that he knows best. It’s a good collection of verses that displays the superb depth of talent in the TDE crew.

The video follows suit with the audio, being mostly minimal and focused around the rappers more than anything else. The dark scenescape undoubtedly adds to the power and grittiness of the track, whilst the siren lights create a little danger and urgency. It’s enough to complement a good hip-hop track, and one of the better posse cuts in recent months. Grab the Control System album now.
