Riff: Ab-Soul – “Stigmata”

Jun 25, 2014

I carry the cross, if Virgin Mary had an abortion/I’d still be carried in the chariot by stampeding horses/I’m more than a man, I’ve been died and rose again/Left these holes in my hands, so you know who I am

from Stigmata lyrics by Ab-Soul

Master your craft and you too will feel like a holy man worthy of martyrdom. It’s a display of supreme confidence that takes a seething dump over the garden variety mush mouthing in today’s scene. Batting third in the line-up was a lucrative move for TDE as it’s provided them with some unexpected power.
