I’m a fan of Danny Brown’s music and his feature on this song is what brought me to tune into Ab-Soul, who is linked with Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock in the group Black Hippy. The first time I heard “Terrorists Threats” I loved it. The wordplay with “Babylon/babble on” and “Selassie I/Eye” really drew me in and I was surprised to hear him talk about gang solidarity in defense against US government systems of oppression. Ab-Soul raps about the dichotomy of being exposed to violence and discrimination despite living in the [...]
This is ill in so many ways...
Black Hippy crew member Ab-Soul has a new video out for "Terrorist Threats," a song from his recently released sophomore album Control System . While the APLUSFILMZ-directed video is rather minimalist focusing on shots of Ab-Soul and guests Danny Brown and Jhene Aiko with digital graffiti and footage of 9/11 and Barack Obama added in post-production, the video visually captures the sinister vibe of the song. It's no coincidence that Ab-Soul's distrust of the government is backed with red, white, and blue graffiti.
Last week, Ab-Soul, the Cali rap crew Black Hippy's resident bug-out specialist, released a very strong album called Control System . Now we've got a video for " Terrorist Threats ," his ghostly-but-ferocious conspiracy-theorizing collaboration with Danny Brown and Jhene Aiko. The APLUSFilmz -directed clip pairs footage of its three stars standing around dark streets and looking awesome with in-bad-taste 9/11 stock footage. Watch it below. Read More...

"Just proceed on your conquest." I'm playing a little bit of catch up today, after spending the last four days working with MTV2 and Sucker Free during their weekend in Chicago. One video I definitely wanted to get up is this new clip from Ab-Soul featuring Danny Brown and Jhene Aiko. "Terrorist Threats" is off Control The System and is a very dope socio-political Hip Hop joint that still gets rowdy. Peep it below.
Released yesterday "Terrorist Threats" ft. Danny Brown & Jhene Aiko Prod. by Dave Free of Digi+Phonics. This here, is way to dope to let it pass...when Ab-Soul gets his flow on lock, ish is mad dope. This track does deserves a better video though. Ab-Soul: Facebook - Twitter Continue Reading
Having written on "Terrorist Threats" once or twice now, a third entry should be a sign the song's in heavy rotation on this side. Now with a video to go [...]
Benchmarks in the hip-hop community are saying these two are fuckin real as shit and rock a live show. Ab and Danny switch their flows up with ease and freak this beat. Smoke weed, fail pissers, no job, terrorist plans......whoa

New video for this absolute banger off Ab-Soul 's Control System , which dropped earlier this week. Him and Danny Brown need to stay working together.
Ab-Soul's Control System is getting a great feedback and these visuals are just adding fuel to the fire. APLusFilmz grabs ahold of the directing for the video and also snags up all the artists featured on this track. Dope vid to some dope music, check it out below.
This new APLUSFilmz-directed video for Ab-Soul, Danny Brown & Jhene Aiko's "Terrorist Threats" goes stupid hard. Jhene be looking fine as roasted almonds in a vanilla wafer and I hope Danny Brown does more tracks with TDE. Soulo's Control System is still in heavy rotation at the MJF office. Catfish thinks Ab-Soul is better than Kendrick Lamar. I know some of you agree. Control System is out now . Video: Ab-Soul - Terrorist Threats ft. Danny Brown & [...]
Another dope video released from Soul's Control System, which in my opinion is currently and will be one of the best albums of the year. You can feel his heart in all of his songs, especially when the late Alori Joh is featured on a track. If you haven't already bought Control System, do so here . Well worth your money and time.

Copping a Danny Brown verse equates to a willingness to be upstaged, but Ab-Soul still commands plenty attention as an abject TDE foot soldier. Download: Ab-Soul - Terrorist Threats (ft. Danny Brown, Jhene Aiko) (produced by Dave Free) via Top Dawg Entertainment
[Ab-Soul featured in promo-art for Terrorist Threats] Black Hippy member, Ab Soul , teams up with eccentric, Detroit-based rapper Danny Brown , and vocalist Jhene Aiko to bring us the ominous and illuminati-inspired single, "Terrorist Threats." Top Dawg Entertainment (Black Hippy's label) recently announced a deal in which they made with Interscope Records - "Terrorist Threats" is the birth child of these two labels collaborating. Dave Free of Digi+Phonics can be credited for the arid, and ill-omened production. I found the content [...]
Ab-Soul may finally surpass Jay Rock as Black Hippie's third most-popular MC (spots number one and two are currently occupied by Kendrick Lamar and ScHoolboy Q , respectively), what with two killer collaborations with two of the hottest new rappers around. Under normal circumstances, it would be very easy for any up-and-comer to get lost in the presence of an unhinged beat and ScHoolboy Q and Danny Brown , but Ab-Soul is, um, not normal . And that makes us very excited for his upcoming full-length, Control [...]
