Ab-Soul has seen the future, and it ain’t looking too bright… for sucker emcees, anyway. On new promo single The End Is Near, the TDE solider informs his competition that they aren’t long for this world. After prophesying the lames’ demise, he goes ahead and drops one of the coldest punchlines I’ve heard in a minute: “I’m a king and I smoke a lot of weed / That makes sense: it’s bout 33 ounces in a liter (leader).” Fellow indie heavyweight Mac Miller does double-duty on the guest tip, producing the joint’s hazy instrumental under his Larry Fisherman alias and contributing some blunted lyrical flames on the back. Did Ab-Soul and his partner-in-rhyme kill it? I think I know the answer but, as always, readers get to lay down the final verdict. Those feeling this record can, of course, keep it locked for further freshness from both collaborators.
