Who is Ab-Soul:
Herbert, better known to the world as Ab-Soul, is an American hip hop recording artist from Carson, California and is currently signed to Top Dawg Entertainment and Interscope Records. Ab-Soul is a member of the hip hop group Black Hippy with fellow West Coast rappers: Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolBoy Q, and Jay Rock.
Ab-Soul was born and raised in the suburb of Carson, California. He group up to middle class parents, who owned a local record store called Magic Disc Music, where Ab-Soul went to everyday after school. I guess you can say he had music in his DNA.
Ab-Soul has a passion for words and stories which he found through music. At 10 years of age Ab-Soul contracted Stevens-Johnson syndrom which caused him to be hospitalized and is the origin of his dark lips and light sensitive eyes. Now you know why he wears shades everywhere he goes.
Ab-Soul wrote his first verse when he was 12 years old to Twista’s Emotion. ”I was like, I can do this; I’ll try it out”. That’s a day he remembers vividly. From that moment he has been very keen to the whole writing music craft. However, it wasn’t until he graduated high school that he began to take his craft
