Ab-Soul ft. Kendrick Lamar - Moscato

Tae Beast
Longterm Mentality

Ab-Soul may be as West Coast as they come, but his new leaked single Moscato with Kendrick Lamar invokes a strong West Side Chicago vibe a la Do or Die’s mid-90s cruising classic Po Pimp. Producer Tae Beast makes good use of silky bass lines and dreamy strings to create a Blaxploitation-era sound that would please The Mack himself. Ab-Soul even lends his vocals to the hook in praise of the mind-erasing and soothing properties of the vino beverage: “When life gets too hard to swallow, just grab a bottle of moscato!” It’s pretty funny to imagine Soul and Lamar rapping about women and weed while holding wine glasses - maybe they drink it straight from the bottle, who knows. In any event, Moscato seems to be on a steady path to prevalence as the drink of choice among emerging rappers, so it’s fitting that a song like this one has come to pass. The single can be found on Soul’s Longterm: Mentality project, which doesn’t current have a hard release date. As always, DJBooth will be on top of it whenever the word becomes official.
