  • Fethe

    So many dope lines in this...going to have this shit on repeat all day

  • http://vimeo.com/user677428/videos Chi2LA23

    Ab-Soul always has the sickest lines that you don't always catch the first time. This song is sick, Terrorist Threats is sick and I can't wait for this album! People need to stop sleeping on Ab.

  • M. Bison

    Hey doggy, yes this is a good song that I like. It is with a good melody. Look at him relaxed on the couch so calmly. I like to sit on my couch when I get stressed out too bra. But foreal, after I heard Terrorist Threats, I knew we would get along. I'll have my people contact you Ab. You should maintain a healthy exercise regimen as well. 5 miles daily and 200 diamond pushups. Steak everynight brah because vegetables are for pussies.

  • Holy-Holyfield

    Duh...

  • ds123

    i think hes sayin 3 i's as in hiiipower

  • Milk Pad Staples

    I am pretty sure he's sayin 3 i's as in "Aye, aye, aye, andelay andelay arrrriba arrrriba!!" Like Speedy Gonzalez. You know cuz he's thinking so far ahead of us and shit.

  • Crenshaw&Man..

  • anthony

    Every TDE release is a celebration of good music

  • top_shottatx

    i see why he always has his shades on, dude looks like brock from pokemon lol anyways dope song

  • Wonton Soup

    @top_shottatx Brock was pretty swag tho. Excluding the fact he never tried to get at any of them sexy and lonely nurses they always be around

  • your third eye

    call me a conspiracy theorist or whatever idc none of yall fuckboyz fase me but..

    aint it funny how this dude was never on this tip.. i mean yeah he always sayin how he's the intellect of the group... the real thinker.

    his wifey kills herself (no disrespect) . saying she had talent is an understatement.. mysterious & wild suicide..

    ever since then homie aint scared no more & now is rapping his ass off and calling niggas like barack out and spittin that "fina get murked by the govt" type of shit.

    crazy... i aint complainin or nothing.. just observing.

    wake up people

  • GR

    he's talking about the third eye (Hiiipower), and the pineal gland. look that shit up. I love where TDE's going with this.

  • hugh

    THIS THAT REPEAT MUSIC

  • DayO

    DMT. I fucked with that shit on new years, changed my life.

    Jay E taught me.

  • Jammin

    Some of y'all niggas really needa do your research ab-soul has been talkin
    about this 3rd eye, charkra, astral projection stuff since long term mentality
    All his songs have a deeper meaning to it, you guys gotta look beneath the
    Surface. Some of his songs don't sit well with me.

  • jay

    this is some hiii power shit ab soul next album is gonna be raw as fuck

  • KennyWoo

    lmao @your third eye

    forreal i was thinking the same shit, somethings up... still dope though, can't wait for control system, right in time for finals

  • Will

    Maybe he just hit a "fuck it" phase when Alori Joh died (RIP...terrible story) and now he's just going off on everything. i don't mind it, maybe Soul can get some more recognition with this project

  • mtrx

    Yoo this shit is CRAZYYY. No one else out there got bars like this dude right now.

  • SwizZ

    shit is RAW

  • brianbrown

    He killed this.

  • frankddank

    Ive known about ab-soul for the longest time now (07's 'No Sleep Til NYC'...look that up "black hippy fans"). Ive been trying to tell niggas soul is like our modern day Pac. While all the attention is on Kendrick & Q right now my nigga soul has been constantly dropping gems for the human soul to nourish off. Ab-Soul's messages are always intrusive to the listener. I could see him being the John Lennon of hip hop one day. He would just fit that shoe so perfectly. Definatley the most slept on in the TDE camp. But I agree with @your third eye on the fact that he definately seems to not be holding back anymore. I feel sorry for all the shallow people listening to shallow rappers cuz any future music from this cat here is either going over their heads or is going to send their frivolous worlds crashing down.

    SOUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • QB

    Crazy.. Ab has definitely been on some next level shit for a long time.. I can imagine what he went through losing Alori Joh like that. Death has a way of getting you to remove your fears, so yeah maybe he's going all out now.. Hiiipower.

  • Dude is dope

    Dude is coming into his style. This album is going to be fucking bananas. I wish we had more info on the album though. If this is going to be the first release through Aftermath/Shady I'm going to buy this day 1

  • iLL

    here we go ... new age rapeur lol

    Pineal Gland !!! lol

  • frankddank

    Im telling you....The John Lennon of hip-hop!!!

    SOUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Isaiah W.

    @Sheeps on 2dopeboyz
    I'm pretty sure that was the point, to capture the listener with a dope beat and spit knowledge over it if you haven't noticed already he does it all the time

  • Thinker

    so ppl are acting like there's some hidden message in this shit or something. i listen to the song again and dude doesnt hide anything about a message. amazing song, dont get me wrong, but dudes gotta stop exagerating shit. on the real, you konw what the fuck a pineal gland is, COOL! you heard of DMT, AMAZING! now go into depth with that shit without referencing wikipedia on the other tab and id really be impressed. song is cool but this aint no secret shit, science majors who dont listen rap probably know more about ur secret shit then u do. smh at u druggies. Ab-Soul that NIGGA doe! Control System!!!!

  • Chris

    @Thinker

    co-sign. Dudes on here acting like the "3 eyes" part at the end is some ultra-secret message or some shit.

    anyways, fucking dope song. can't wait for Control System...time for Soulo to get the recognition he deserved.

  • lake

    excellent track. Recognize that "Stress Rap".

  • RSWD

    "Best way to describe me is a genius-idoit" damn.

  • Juicy-G

    So did anybody know that's the Flower Of Life on his chest?

  • Revkev

    I was wonderin' if anyone else was noticin' that Juicy?! I hope everyone wakes up soon enough, Soulo is an enlightened muhufugga. 3 i's, pineal gland. and the three towers to the sun. He's tryin' to inform you all of the truth. Sacred Geometry, Astrotetheology, spirituality. Soulo's on his shit!!!

  • III

    Dear 2DBz clowns who think you're on next level shit for knowing about the Flower of Life:

    Soulo himself tweeted, "I have the "seed of life" on my chest not the flower..."

    Apparently you guys don't know as much as you'd like everyone to think. As happy as I am that you guys know how to use Google, chill with the condescending attitude. Yes, the subject matter of this song is deep, but anyone who's over the age of 18 will most likely understand 90% of what he's saying. You're not some special enlightened person for knowing what the pineal gland is...hate to break it to you.

  • realtalk©

    Sometimes I'm still amazed that Jay Rock, Kendrick, Schoolboy, Ab Soul are all coming from the same area, same indie label.. and when Kendrick started blowing up I never actually expected Q and Soul to follow.. they deserve it though, TDE been making great music for a couple years now..

  • AD

    @your third eye, you tryna say that deat was some kinda sacrifice... I hope not.

  • Hermes

    This is what happens when a true artist gets slept the fuck on... I pirated Long term mentality while u motherfuckers tripped off the goblins of the industry

  • Alright

    @realtalk I don't think anyone has a condescending attitude, I think we're all just curious. This video makes you think...a lot. Who wouldn't look it up on the internet? What I'm saying is don't knock people for trying. So what, you knew that it was the seed of life and not the flower woopty doo. At least there are people who would like to learn. Sheesh...

  • Alright

    I meant @III my bad

  • chronwell

    This guy is nice! This and that Threats joint is too black for BET!

  • http://www.triangularmindrape.tumblr.com Fuckyoupayme

    Wait, Ab Soul's wife off'd herself? Can ya'll elaborate?

  • ROCKET SCIENTIST

    I ain't even get half way, SMH

    He a FOOL 4 this 1 !

    5-11-12 JUST AROUND THE CORNER

  • ThinkAboutIt.

    @fuckyoupayme Ab-Soul's girlfriend/TDE songstress Alori Joh committed suicide (days before Houston's death) from jumping to her death. People really need to wake up and see what TDE is doing. There "Hiiipower" message isn't some transcending anti-government social movement. There understanding of "hiiipower" is deeply rooted in the occult. Not saying they are in the Illuminati, but they are definitely practicing their methods. Don't be ignorant to this, there symbol for Hiiipower is the egyptian eye of Horus, a prominent symbol for practicing occult magic in secret societes and satanic cults. They believe that their pineal gland "third eye" is the eye of Horus/Lucifer. Which is why Kendrick on "HiiiPower" says "build your own pyramids and write your own hyroglyphs" meaning they are practicing magic and using this demonic power without the Illuminati elite. However, I doubt that lasted to long after signing with Dr. Dre. The Illuminati is the main occult group to perform actual human blood sacrifices, so for them mysteriously lose Alori and sign w/ Dre a person known for sacrifices (look up his son Andre) it seems like they are completely selling out to the Devil.

  • blahsehblah

    I see that RIF LA Good People Helping Good People Hoodie at the end though! SOLO HOE!

  • Holy-Holyfield

    "I feel like I'm affiliated with the Illuminati bitch, all seeing fucking eye, this is your enlightenment" - "Gone Insane" by Ab-Soul. Need I say more? He's BEEN saying this type of shit.

  • Holy-Holyfield

    "Hiipower that's a nigga religion, til' Jesus comeback and he tell me something different" - Kendrick Lamar "Hell Yeah" by Ab-Soul This Hiipower shit is cray!

  • the realest

    watched the video and listened to the song for the first time, and THIS is what the "socially-concious" rappers are? GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. hes a damn junkie rapping about gettin sherm'd out. if this nigga traveling other dimensions and shit could he find some better lyrics?? nigga is dumb avaerage. dont tell me anything different. nigga not out rapping the coke rappers, bar for bar.

    and all the symbolism and flashing images, i dont see any of yall nerds preaching illuminati, other than maybe two. but let jay-z or anybody drop a video like this and its flooded with the nerds.

    somebody said hes the most dangerous. WHAT THE FUCK IS THE NIGGA DOING?? not a damn thing! hes taking drugs, and rapping about it. "oh wow. hes speaking that real." smh. really? wtf is he saying that i didnt read up on when i was 17?

    but thats just apart of the entitlement generation we are in. where we just wanna sit around and get high, cry and complain, and put forth absolutely ZERO percent effort into any solutions other than getting high or rapping/facebooking/tweeting/etc about it. thats the "concious" of today. i cant stand all four of these niggaz. give me some camron or some d-block. fuck outta here wit these damn hippies.

  • lol

  • Really Thou?

  • the realest

  • coolCat

    "but thats just apart of the entitlement generation we are in. where we just wanna sit around and get high, cry and complain, and put forth absolutely ZERO percent effort into any solutions other than getting high or rapping/facebooking/tweeting/etc about it"

    just be open minded to what dude is saying instead of being set in your ways

  • Blak King

    @your third eye, you really didn't listen to the mixtape he released last year "Long Term Mentality". He called out Barack Obama on a song called "Nothin New" on that mixtape.

  • marquis

    ab-soul is a beast for this. control system is gonna be insane. added on with kendrick, the g.o.o.d. music, and a$ap's album, this summer is gonna be crazy.
