Ab-Soul ft. Kendrick Lamar - Turn Me Up

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Tae Beast
Album:
Long Term 2

Those who tuned in for Ab-Soul‘s last feature, the aptly-titled Drift Away, know that the Cali up-and-comer’s got quite the knack for crafting chilled-out headphone music, but the man just might have outdone himself with his latest mixtape leak. While Turn Me Up doesn’t have the summer-jam feel of Ab’s last effort, this joint makes up for in sheer spaciness. Credit is, of course, due producer Tae Beast, whose swooshing synth ambiance, delayed guitar riffs and hazy vocal samples make for perfect vibe-out material, as well as to the headliner and his guest collaborator; Ab drops two verses jam-packed with quietly determined braggadocio and vivid imagery, and Day Dreaming emcee Kendrick Lamar follows suit, lacing the track’s back end with his own pensive reflections on the game. If this introspective banger leaves you craving more, we’ve got you covered like silk sheets. Ab-Soul’s latest street album, the DJBooth.net-sponsored Long Term 2, is set to hit our front page for streaming and free download June 28.
