After a few setbacks, Ab-Soul’s new album These Days… has arrived. On the 15-track effort, Soulo says the concept behind the LP is self-explanatory, attempting to capture and describe everything that’s happening in hip-hop today. “I just wanted it to be a little time capsule of the last couple of years since my absence. The vibe of music and life right now like in last couple of years,” he told us weeks before the June 24 release date. While many of his fans are just sinking their teeth into These Days…, we’ve been constantly keeping it in rotation at the XXL offices. So much that we’ve found out Ab’s been strategically paying homage to a lot of rappers who he respects. Click through to see all 22 song references on These Days…, ranging from The Notorious B.I.G. to Jay Z, who he personally tries to show love on every project. Soul!
