Ab-Soul speaks on "Why he always wears Sunglasses", "Education", "Musical Influences", & More [Interview]
After his performance at Rutgers University, we had the pleasure of chatting with another talented member from TDE, Ab-Soul. In this interview he reveals that his his eyes are light sensitive which explains the "Sunglasses Look". We also discussed his educational background, music influences, and who he is currently a fan of in hip-hop.
Like his name suggests, Ab-Soul is not easily defined. His diversity shows in his music as he can effortlessly shift from slow flow to rapid fire and everything in between. Here's a look at him discussing some of the many musical influences that shaped him into the artist he is now. He talks about everyone from OutKast to Jay-Z to Twista and how growing up working in a record shop played a key role in expanding his world musically. This is the story of Where It All Began in hip-hop for Ab-Soul.
