Ab-Soul freestyles for BET’s “The Backroom” [Video]

Top Dawg Entertainment rapper Ab-Soul stops by BET’s “The Backroom” to deliver an entertaining freestyle over a creepy, organ-filled instrumental by Messiaz. Clad in a black fitted cap, shirt bearing his name, and sunglasses, watch below as the West Coast lyricist coolly crafts a story off the top of his head.

Ab-Soul’s second album, Control System, was released in May to much critical acclaim, and the same expressive delivery makes his freestyle one worth watching. While labelmate Kendrick Lamar may have stolen the spotlight with the release of good kid, m.A.A.d. city, Soulo proves that he will always be a force to be reckoned with.
