In an era of endlessly copied trends and sound-alike rappers it’s sadly rare to hear a truly original sound. Well listeners, I’m here today to proudly announce that I’ve never heard something quite like Ab-Soul’s music before. Repping for the chronically under-repped city of Carson, California, Ab-Soul makes his DJBooth premier with his memorable track King of Carson. Over a frantically moving beat from producer King Blue filled with live percussion and funk bass lines, Ab-Soul delivers hyper-cinematic verses that match the track’s musical creativity. You may love it or hate it, but you sure as hell won’t forget it. Those looking to hear more of the Carson King’s music can download his new mixtape, Longterm Project and, of course, keep it locked to DJBooth.net.
