    Soulo Hoe!

  • shake

    What’s your life without a soul, a dead one.

  • Dee Jay

    Yay, more blasphemous cover art. At least the song’s good though

    • Dave

      go cry into your bible pussy

      • Dee Jay

        Good thing I’m not even a Christian, otherwise that pointless insult really would’ve hurt.

        • Dave

          if you really weren’t christian then you wouldn’t give a shit about a “blasphemous” picture

          • Dee Jay

            Who says I have to be a Christian to give a shit about blasphemy? That’s like saying you have to work at the FCC to give a shit about censorship lol smh

          • PatrickBateman

            You believe that story of some guy on a cross?!?!?!

          • Sticky

            It is a historical fact that Jesus lived and was crucified.

          • Dave

            it’s still pretty up in the air whether “THE” Jesus was real & crucified. the “fact” that criminals were crucified back then is no surprise, the Romans crucified lots of people.

          • Sticky

            No it’s a historical fact that Jesus lived with more support than most other things you accept as fact. Google it a little bit and you’ll find that historians of all faiths agree that he lived, was baptized and was crucified. I’m not religious but I just feel like it’s an important thing to know, why do you think it’s still up in the air? Please don’t say zeitgeist

          • Dave

            pfffft LMFAO fucking zeitgeist fuck outta here with that dumb shit. look up David Fitzgerald’s book Nailed: Ten Christian Myths That Show Jesus Never Existed at All

          • Eric Davis

            David’s points aren’t points. His views are biased. Those who read his weak thoughts haven’t succeded look it up more.

    • ben

      i believe you’re ignorant soul means sampling. a.k.a the roots of hip hop

  • sk8

    Very nice!

  • AndOneill

    Dope! This should have been on the album!

  • Joe Dirt

    this is real shit dope

  • JEM

    Soul’s wordplay is crazy.

    • malcyvelli

      sometimes

      • JEM

        Nah. All the time.

        • Heeeyyya

          Yup that wordplay on twact was banannas huh

    • Eric Davis

      Not really

      • JEM

        Yes, really

        • Mez D

          nah Soul is a great rapper but known for throwing in some sorry punchlines. Shit like “I’m turnt like a page” and whatnot

  • Dave

    i was waiting for the drop to a more Hip Hop beat but it’s a cool song

  • Sticky

    This song should’ve been substituted for a song or two on These Days…, I enjoyed the album but I feel like this is the type of track it was missing to make the whole concept more complete

    • Lejon Brames

      You’re right, this probably shoulda been the last song instead of that battle with Daylyt

      • JEM

        I thought the battle at the end was one of the highlights of the album.

        • Sticky

          It was cool but I’ve only listened to it once

        • Lejon Brames

          Not saying it wasn’t I loved the battle but it was more of a bonus to the album as opposed to apart of it

        • Yongjefferson

          You THOT wrong bitch!

          • JEM

            NOPE

    • Mickey Mouse

      naw

      • Sticky

        Interesting point

  • DungeonMaster

    I’ve heard better from him. Much better.

    • Red Ketchup

      Fuck you man, you dont know shit man.

      • DungeonMaster

        That’s why I got more up votes that you bitch.

        • yardmane

          not anymore you don’t.

          • DungeonMaster

            Eat an entire dick.

          • Guest

            skydive into a pool of dicks.

          • DungeonMaster

            Consume a infectious possum penis

        • malcyvelli

          HAHAHAHAHA I’m sure at one point you were right but he’s up by 36, nigga lmaoooo

          • DungeonMaster

            Hey… you can go away. Bitch.

  • Lejon Brames

    THIS>>>>>>>>”I” by Kendrick

    • JEM

      Kendrick will come back tho!

    • Adp

      Nigga this shit was horrible, very hard to listen to music wise. Lyrics where good but evrything else was horrific.

      • Rob_Watts

        Nigga it’s just country music in the background chill out.

        • Ya Boy Brook #OnePieceSqaud

          Country music is ass

          • Rob_Watts

            Lol

  • Ricky P

    soulo nigga

  • Mickey Mouse

    BARS!

  • soulonice_

    Should’ve been on the album Soul…

  • soulonice_

    Mentioned Long Term, hope he get back on that shit.

  • Duke Jerolin Silver

    Can’t believe 2DBZ still tag tracks in iTunes. Wasn’t aware major blog sites still did this like it’s 2006.

    • Mez D

      lmao what’s the point

  • dwightschrute

    why the fuck wasn’t this on the album? ab is one of my favorites but TBH these days was a let down.

  • Pubes

    Without wishing to hijack a thread, I am seeing that Supa Villain passed away (reported on some websites.) Man… he even had his mixtape coming out next week… RIP Supa Villain.

    And if you don’t know:

  • julzthe49ersfan

    Anyone know the sample?? Its dope as fuck

    • shake

      Jackson Browne – “These Days”

      • hh_addict

        Thanks, this “sample” (at this point I don’t know if we can call it a sample) is dope. Soul’s version is cool though.

      • Ain’t this a cover of a cover? The original song is from Nico, isn’t it.

  • Moonie

    Maybe a sample clearance issue

    • shake

      Definitely think this is the main reason for it’s absence from the album. Only makes sense IMO.

      • headwest

        Somebody once said sample clearance is like kryptonite to TDE…I’m starting to think thats actually true

  • biff tannen

    Dope joint.

    You guys need to quit over hyping shit tho lol

    • BoRed

      How the hell did they overhype this? That shit is definitely not worth complaining about

      • biff tannen

        Look at how defensive people get when anything that isn’t praise gets posted. Hypebeasts.

        • BoRed

          Bitch I wasn’t getting defensive, I want to know how the fuck this was overhyped. I’m cool with praise OR criticism as long as it makes sense.

          • biff tannen

            Lmao the guilty are always offended.

            I wasn’t talking about you. U asked a question and I answered it. “Look how defensive people get. ..” , as in look at the comments.

            Smh @telling on yourself

            Lol

  • Adp

    This was the worst song i ever heard in my life. Him rapping was good but that country shit with that dry ass beat? Wtf are u thinking? You are fucking craaaaz-E if you can sit here and tell me you would bump this in this whip. I can almost garuantee no one will give this more than 1 play. Tell me whos gonna push replay on this shit, please.

    • soulprint

      I pressed replay on this shit, for the 5th time.
      Thanks

    • Kev

      This song wasn’t made so you could bump it in the whip

  • Adp

    Yall niggas lowkey making me kinda mad. This nigga is just talking over a country song, letting that singer yoddle through the whole track, then spitting about 5 bars every like 45 to 50 seconds. And yall are giving him praise for this bullshit? Worst song of 2014 no contest. Soul dont ever put no shit like this out again.

    • Pubes

      Nah worst song out is that Joell Ortiz – Candy or whatever it’s called

    • MewLover34

      What’s the matter? You mad you’re the only one shitting on the track?

  • dahlr

    I miss the ab on control system. Damn

  • Matthias Roberto Anderson

    why i have a feeling this was suppose to be on the album… but the copyrights didnt go through?

  • Incredible track, why wasn’t this on the album!

  • malcyvelli

    Not fucking with this really. I respect him trying to go left field with the production but I can’t vibe with it. Lyrics were cool though. Meh. 7/10

  • To Pimp A Butterfly via Cocoon

    It’s a chill song, I wish they switched the beat like they did on “Westside, right on time” though but regardless a chill ass song!

  • Eric Davis

    Don’t/want to understand the recent exaltation of Ab Soul to me is beyond sewage trash

  • Eric Davis

    Also who clicks on the iTunes link? Lmaol

  • Al the Don Dodda

    “You ain’t got bars like this Mac”

    *Waits for Mac’s response*
