- Artist: Ab-Soul
- Track: Pineal Gland
- Producer: Tae Beast
- Album: Control System
According to University of New Mexico psychopharmacologist Dr. Rick Strassman, the hallucinations commonly associated with near-death experiences may be caused by a massive release of the psychedelic substance DMT from the Pineal Gland (Thanks, Wikipedia!). On the latest single off his forthcoming full-length, released along with its Fredo Tovar/Scott Fleishmann-directed visuals, West Coast buzzmaker Ab-Soul takes inspiration from this controversial hypothesis, chronicling his struggles to escape from a waking nightmare over Tae Beats's ominous piano arpeggios. Feeling it? More awaits on the TDE affiliate's Control System LP, scheduled for release May 11.
