Ab-Soul: “Let Black Hippy Do Detox”

blame it on Shake June 27, 2014

Ab-Soul’s These Days… promo run found him on SkeeTV’s couch the other day for a sit down with our friend DJ Skee. When the topic of Black Hippy (TDE’s Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, ScHoolboy Q and Jay Rock) and their rumored album came up, Soulo came out of left field with his response. Presenting an idea that is bound to rile up the hip hop purists out there. Instead of Dr. Dre releasing his oft-delayed (never dropping) Chronic 2001 follow-up Detox, the Black Lip Pastor suggested that he let the group make use of the name instead for their upcoming LP.

“I’m trying to tell Top [Dawg] to just tell Dr. Dre to make it Detox. Let us do Detox. Wouldn’t that be crazy? Start a petition… the Black Hippy album should be Detox.”

Everything is said with a smile and a few laughs, but the idea is still pretty interesting to think about. What would you guys think if Black Hippy snatched the Detox name from the good doctro? The floor is yours…
