Following a drive to increase his follower count on twitter, TDE rapper Ab-Soul has revealed his approaching album’s title: Control System. While the rapper has yet to gain the exposure of labelmates Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, he’s certainly next up, having signed to Aftermath with the rest of his collective. In fact, Schoolboy recently tweeted that this project easily outdoes his own acclaimed recent effort, Habits and Contradictions. While it’s of course the duty of any loyal rap partner to hype their posse’s work, such a bold claim still hints at good things.
Ab-Soul doesn’t want us to have to take Schoolboy at his word, either, releasing a track – and its video – from the project, along with the album’s title. “Pineal Gland” comes with production courtesy of TDE regular, Tae Beast. Watch the video for “Gland” below and look out for Control System on May 11th.
