When you hear the term west coast you think of Los Angeles, you may even think of the Bay Area, but unless you’re from there, I can almost guarantee that you don’t think of Carson, CA. That may change soon if Ab-Soul keeps turning out outstanding tracks like his new mixtape leak MayDay. Coming off his last Booth-approved submission Long Term, Ab puts the soul in his name by wearing his heart on his mic throughout MayDay; in the intro he says he intends to use MayDay as a chance to prove he’s the “number one author,” and he proves his intentions with a hyper-aggressive yet still lyrical flow: “I’m borderline psycho when I come up with lines to bite yo, f**king face off y’all ain’t tryin to face off.” Tell us how you really feel Ab. Add in a banging and scratch-infused beat from producer Willie B. and I believe we’ve got ourselves a winner. I’ve got a feeling a lot of rappers are going to need rescue after Ab-Soul hits them with his Long Term 2 mixtape, coming soon.
