- About this Video
- Influenced by Canibus, Eminem and fellow Carson, California-rapper Ras Kass, Ab-Soul is a self-proclaimed "genius-idiot" who can drop bars about national politics to jokes about Nicki Minaj's round ass. Frequently linked up with the likes of Kendrick Lamar -- who is mentored by Dr. Dre -- and ScHoolboy Q, another L.A. rapper, Ab-Soul represents a new generation of L.A. hip-hop.
Watch him talking about his roots and influences after his first headline show in New York City.
Be sure to cop "Control System" off iTunes.
