I’m pretty sure anyone who’s graduated from high school has daydreamed about being the most successful person at their class reunion; you know, arriving in a limo, dazzling everyone with your ten thousand dollar suit, acting like it’s nothing as all of your unrequited teenage crushes vie for your attention… well, I have, anyway – and, judging by mixtape leak/title track, Long Term, King of Carson emcee Ab-Soul has also fantasized about being the envy of all his former classmates. Backed by emcee-producer (and exclusive freestyle series alum) Curtiss King‘s triumphantly brassy sampled boardwork, the West Coast buzzmaker addresses graduates of Carson High and neighboring schools, rhapsodizing about his bright present and brighter future in braggadocio-laced verses. It’s hard to argue with the enthusiasm Ab-Soul showcases here, but is he truly destined to write his name in the pages of history? Only time will tell. In any case, fans should keep it locked for the latest on the artist’s Long Term 2 street album, scheduled to hit the ‘net “soon.”
