Six months ago, Top Dawg Entertainment emcee Ab-Soul previewed new music and took it to Instagram to post “It’s mixing and sample clearing time…. Y’all know Wut happens after that,” indicating an album would follow. Turns out, he bluffed and there is still no timeline on when his album is dropping, but TDE’s boss is demanding one soon.
Top Dawg CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith blames Ab-Soul for the super delayed project. He took it to Twitter to vent his frustrations about the album that was supposed to be done months ago. He tweeted, “@abdashsoul & @MixedByAli holding up his album,” he posted. “I’m done takin the blame… they need 2 get da mixes right.. that’s the hold up. Get at them.”
He then commanded the two artists, Solo and Ali, the mix and mater, to make finishing touches on the album a priority to it can release. He followed up to the previous tweet by saying, “@abdashsoul @MixedByAli I just told my bosses (the fans) what the hold up is. Now I’m about 2 put my foot down. Have it done when I get back,” he demanded.
Back in February Ab-Soul was seemingly frustrated by not getting his shine in the TDE camp. He took it to twitter to say, “I’ll be ready when my #’s called. This bench is gettin warm as f*** tho mayne. Nonetheless, it’s important to move as a unit. It’s bigger than me. It’s family. Gotta respect that.”
Tiffith, responded with “when i put u in the game u better be on fire nigga….”
It’s clearly Ab’s time and he’s not ready. Nonetheless, Solo is beyond creative and we all know the level of sensitivity an artists has when it comes to their creations, but come on Ab, the last project we got from you was in 2014 with These Days…
We all are aware of Ab’s distincitve ability to create good music, now we’re just waiting on it. His fourth studio album, currently titled DWTW, is set to drop, but who knows when?
