Ab-Soul hooks up with a personal favourite artist of mine JMSN for this new joint called "Nibiru". JMSN handles only the production for the song but he puts something really special together for Soul to lyrically destroy. Although I have no problem with hearing some new dope material from Ab-Soul, the release of his album has kept me completely satisfied. Control System has definitely gotten the most play from me out of any album this summer. With that said, looking forward to hearing more from Ab and the rest of TDE. Also, check out JMSN's unique, but incredible work on his YouTube channel and if you dig his stuff be sure to get his album on iTunes now. Listen to Ab-Soul's "Nibiru" below.
I had the opportunity to interview ANTHM recently, and one thing he was really excited to tell me about was his upcoming work with JMSN. On the "Somewhere" remix (premiered over at Pigeons and Planes), we get to see why. JMSN is joined by ANTHM, Gilbere Forte, and Deniro Farrar on the remix, transforming the original interlude off JMSN's album Priscilla into a chilling canvas for the three emcees. Stream and download JMSN's "Somewhere" remix below. Download: JMSN ft. Gilbere Forte, ANTHM & Deniro Farrar - "Somewhere" (JMSN Remix)
