Ab-Soul just dropped his first single in two years, “Huey Knew” featuring Da$h.
The four minute track kicks off with a ode to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. Except the TDE member remixes the classic tune over a Willie B beat.
“This is a story all about how / My life got flipped, turned upside down / And if you roll another blunt and keep your mouth shut / I’ll tell you how I became the wicked nigga they call Young Mind F—,’ he raps.
In the rest of the track, Ab-Soul “blacks out” and relays how he hopes that he’s in Obama’s playlist (like his fellow TDE member, Kendrick Lamar).
“I hope I’m in Obama’s iPod / Yeah, ‘fore I had a desktop / Was looking for a shortcut to be an icon / But this time it’s for the money my n—-,” he raps before Da$h steps in with his featured spot.
“Young, no shame, Kurt Cobain, bastard son / With a gun in palm, money, p—-, crime sitting on my mind / No emotion, orange bottles how I deal with mine / Cracking bannies, only time a n—- cross the line / Wrong hand signs’ll turn a function to Columbine / Yeah, So, B.o.B’s top gunner / Front runner, never die clique, the thing you are not brother,” raps Da$h.
Prior to “Huey Knew,” Ab-Soul lent his skill set to Danny Brown’s “Really Doe” and the Black Hippy remix of ScHoolboy Q’s “THat Part.”
