Ab-Soul Gets Spiritual For New Album Cover, Drops Song Trailer

Ab-Soul- 'These Days' Cover
After releasing projects from ScHoolboy Q and SZA, Top Dawg Entertainment is ready to release Ab-Soul‘s third album, ‘These Days.’

And there’s no doubt that the California rhymer is ready to get things popping too, because he just released the cover art and release date for the project, which is set to drop on June 24.

For the artwork, the 27-year-old artist sits in front of a cross, dressed as Jesus, with blood all over his torso and a crown of thorns on his head. Of course, Ab-Soul isn’t the first rapper to use crucifixion imagery.

Both Nas and Kanye West have done it before but for a new generation of rap fans the cover may contain just the right amount of controversy to sell a lot of units.

Ab-Soul also released a trailer for the song ‘Stigmata,’ featuring Action Bronson and Asaad, that shows the lyricist walking through a desert in full Jesus crucifixion garb, which matches the song’s hook.

“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,” he raps.

It’ll be interesting to hear and see what else the TDE spitter has to say on his upcoming project ‘These Days.’

It looks like Ab- Soul will definitely have people talking, and hopefully for him, it will correlate into album sales.
