Riff: Ab-Soul – “W.R.O.H.”

Jun 25, 2014

How the fuck you say I sold my sprit?/I’m still taking blows at the Senate/Claims of Illuminati, I’m just tryna Illuminate/Praise to the most high, God, Jah, Allah, Yahweh/Selassie eye and I’m proud to say, I never need a 9 by my waist

from W.R.O.H. lyrics by Ab-Soul

Whatever controversy brought him here is of no importance. He’s taking his fame and fortune and running to the hills with it. It’s a dangerous game that buries rappers faster than they can be churned out yet a place where Ab seems most conformable, a dark knight’s anthems with a bit of drink on the side.
