TDE’s Ab-Soul Unleashes The Visuals For “Evil Genius”

West Coast native and TDE wordsmith, Ab-Soul is back. Today the wordsmith returns with some striking new visuals for our viewing enjoyment, today providing the video for his track “Evil Genius.” The track is from his fourth studio album Do What Thou Wilt and find Ab-Soul providing something quite intense and fitting for the track.

He spoke to GQ recently about the album, stating: “It’s just very sincere. You know, the record just matched the tone of my emotions at the time. The album is a woman-appreciation album, and I can’t help but commemorate my lady. If I were to talk to her today, that would be the tone of my voice. If I had the opportunity, that’s how I would get at her. If you can imagine something like that, I just tried to put that into words. Unfortunately, the house really did burn down. That was a safe haven for all of my memorabilia of her. A lot of delicate things, fan art, a lot of things I can’t replace.” He also opened up about visiting Alori Joh’s grave for the visual: “Yeah, that was my first time visiting her since the ceremony. My idea was that I’d bring the world with me this time. She was the world to me. I’ve been told “You make the world better,” and now I know what it feels like to have the world taken from me. I can attest to that. So that was an opportunity for me to come back and show her what we’ve done, what we’ve created. Everybody gets to experience that with me in a sense.” Check out the eye-catching video below and speak your mind on it after the jump. Stay Tuned for much more from Ab-Soul coming very soon!
