Note:

I have been waiting and waiting for Ab to drop this album (and I took forever to do the review so I can’t talk much).  I will say I have been checking for this release for about two years.  I got an unofficial listen last year sometime, and after a lot of prodding I thought the project was just going to be shelved.  Needless to say, I am glad that it saw the light of day.  In discussing the album with some heads a couple of weeks ago, someone made the comment that they wished this was the type of music that Mobb Deep still made.   I concur.   The AbSoulJah has made a career of dropping that street realism with wordplay that keeps things continuously interesting.   He never gets monotonous and keeps the listener engaged constantly.

The AbSoulJah – Ninety Something (ft. DJ Safe) (Produced by Gabz of Le Gouffre) (Video)

This is some newness given the video treatment from The AbSoulJah’s latest album, Dim The Light.   The track is smooth with some expert chopping by DJ Safe.  The AbSoulJah continues to maintain a high level of musical excellence not only with this song, but also the entire album.  I hope to have a review done sooner rather than later.  If you like that NY/Boom Bap flavor, I would cop this.

The Absouljah’s new album, Dim The Light, is out now.   I have been on the man to release this project for probably about a year now and it finally arrived January 8th.  I will  have  a full review of the project coming soon but meanwhile I wanted to break you off with a single that DJ Low Cut sent me and produced so you can get a feel for the album.  If you are feeling this, make sure you cop the project.  I feel that The Absouljah has that unique blend of streets tailored in intellect so def worth the price.

The AbSoulJah – The Real Type (Video)

The ill combination of The AbSoulJah and Soulslicers are responsible for this track and video right here.  These two also happen to be two of the most underrated artists in the game.  I have long been a fan of The AbSoulJah’s flow and street-centered lyricism and the Soulslicers had me hooked on their album, Boost Da Soul.

This track will be featured on two projects, The AbSouljah’s new album, Dim The Light and Soulslicers’ Slice Of Life mixtape.   The AbSoulJah also put me on ot th efact that he has a Free EP dropping at the end of the year.  You are going to want to stay tuned for that.
