STREAM: Ab-Soul - ILLuminate (feat. Kendrick Lamar)
Kendrick Lamar's Black Hippy collective is near the top of interesting things happening in hip-hop. Check this one, a cut called "ILLuminate" by Ab-Soul with an assist by Lamar, which is cinematic cruise-control music that cuts deep. Both rappers unleash piles of words. "I used to want to rap like Jay-Z," Ab spits. "Now I feel I can run laps 'round Jay-Z." Dang. Hear more on Control System, which comes May 11.
