Ab-Soul f/ Kendrick Lamar – “ILLuminate” [+ Control System LP artwork] | New Music


With no prior warning, here goes another early release from Ab-Soul‘s forthcoming album, Control System. For what we believe to be the seventh leak from the LP (depending on the fate of “Terrorist Threats” – the song was released for free on XXL‘s Freshmen 2012 mixtape), Solo calls upon the talents of his fellow Black Hippy, Kendrick Lamar, to tackle Skhye Hutch‘s soft and soothing boom bap instrumental.

Ab-Soul mans the first two verses, while K.Dot bodies the conclusive verse, not before wooing our ears with a mellifluous hook, though (talk about versatility, eh?). Along with the new music, the TDE camp have also unveiled the cover art for Ab-Soul’s Control System.

Check it out above and keep it locked for the LP’s arrival this Friday (May 11th).
