Caught up with Ab-Soul during the Road To Paid Dues tour stop in Toronto. This young emcee from Carson, California has made a name for himself from the Long Term Mentality mixtape series and he just released volume 3 on itunes this past week. In our interview Ab-soul talks about his label Top Dawg Ent which consists of SchoolboyQ, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, he also tells me why he doesn’t aspire to be on XXL’s freshman list, why he started questioning religion once he started reading on Malcom X, and the power of our words. – The Come Up Show.
