Los Angeles by way of Carson, CA artist Herbert Anthony Stevens IV, aka Ab-Soul, has announced a new album, Herbert out December 16th via Top Dawg Entertainment.
Herbert is a deliberately intimate portrait of the man behind Ab-Soul going back to his foundation, as noted by the name of the record, leaving the conspiracy theories he’s known for behind while emphasizing his musicality. After suffering through a series of unspeakable tragedies, Stevens completed the album as a changed man with a new sense of purpose. That was outlined with the first single, “Do Better,” where Stevens addressed the changes through an incredibly moving video based on real events. Today you can hear the next single, “Gang‘Nem” produced by Sounwave.
On the track and in the video, he pays homage to his roots in Carson, CA, detailing where he’s from and the lifestyle he grew up around. Accompanied by a feature from “Fre$h,” Soul details the realities of Los Angeles street culture.
