Paying homage to his fellow Carson, California OG Ras Kass with “Threatening Nature,” Ab-Soul tears a few pages from his big homey’s 1996 manuscript “Nature Of The Threat” and tackles relgious ideologies and America’s distorted ego through her His-Story lessons. Dropping game over PakkMusicGroup’s tracks, Ab-Souls’s bars include:
“Way back when I was in grade school I learned about history/ But what about her story, did anybody ask?/ With all disrespect/ I think the American flag was designed by fags/ I had it locked before the spotlight/ I got a gold key and Benjamin Franklin’s kite/ Nigga I’m bright/ This HiiiPower shit is limitless/ You tryna fuck a model/ And I’m trying to deflower Queen Elizabeth/ Just to be precise, who knew that Genesis really meant/ The genealogy of ISIS, this shit ridiculous/ The chicken came before the egg is my hypothesis and/ This ain’t a album, this an algorithm, yeah.”
Check out Ab-Soul’s “Threatening Nature” now as well as Ras Kass‘ “Nature Of the Threat. 20 years later and the world ain’t really changed.
