Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE) member and “black hippy”, Ab-Soul cruised through Houston recently at Warehouse Live for his These Days Tour. He hit favorites from his most recent album, which shares the same title of his tour, but pleased the hardcore fans in the crowd with jams from older projects, Longterm Mentalilty and Control System. The Cali rapper gave us Houstonians the right amount of thinker’s dose music surrounded by good smelling smoke; The kind of live show you wish you could take with you, push play on the IPod cruising the city on a nice night, lighter in the console, and …well you just should’ve been there.

The show never felt empty even though the building was ½ full as 2nd man Short Dawg (@imfreshdoe) by his side, along with featured tour guest, Bas (@fiendbassy) – a Queens, New York native signed to J.Cole’s Dreamville imprint with Interscope Records. If you never knew who he was before, I’m sure you would have probably been a Twitter follower before the night was over.

Ab-Soul ended his night by doing a very personable meet-n-greet for his fans, which included an autograph picture and a photo with Solo himself. We got a chance to catch up with Solo to get a recap of his experience in Houston. He simply expressed how he couldn’t wait to come back and do it again.
