Top Dawg Entertainment & DJBooth.net, are proud to release Ab-Soul’s long anticipated mixtape, Longterm 2: Lifestyles Of The Broke & Almost Famous, a street album chronicling his life as a hip-hop buzzmaker on the verge of his big break. The project features 16 brand new records from the Left Coast hopeful, plus two bonus cuts. Included are Booth-approved leaks “Long Term,” “MayDay,” “Lifestyle,” “Drift Away” and “Turn Me Up.” Longterm 2 comes complete with guest appearances by Jay Rock, Rapper Big Pooh (of Little Brother), Kendrick Lamar and many more. Beats come courtesy of such producers as Sounwave, Tae Beast, Pro Logic, Curtiss King and Willie B.
I first heard Ab spit on Long Term 2 (prod. by Curtiss King) and his witty and charismatic flow is very reminiscent of The Pharcyde (I gotta chance to tell him in person and he was very thankful), so naturally I was hooked and had to follow Ab’s work. Longterm 2 is 16-tracks deep chronicling Ab-Soul’s life story and roots from Carson, CA. Some may remember the old school R&B group, The Boys, and Samoan pioneering hip-hop group, Boo-Ya Tribe, whom also hail from Carson.
Enjoy the little music fun facts and more importantly this dope new project!
