UPDATE #3: The stream for Ab-Soul's "These Days..." album has been released.

Ab-Soul has revealed the title of his upcoming album.

"'These days...' Is the title," Soul says in a Twitter update made today (May 5).

Many initially believed Soul's album would be titled Black Lip Pastor due to the rapper's hashtag in various Twitter updates about the project. Soul later confirmed that the title would not be Black Lip Pastor.

On May 2, Soul said he was close to leaking the effort.

"I'm this close to just leakin my shit like its a mixtape," he said at the time.

Soon after that update was made, TDE CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith addressed the matter with the following Twitter note:"I DARE A NIGGA ON MY TEAM LEAK HIS ALBUM.....#TDE.

These Days... follows Soul's 2012 effort, Control System, a project that earned a 4.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review.

    Damn that W.R.O.H. track is like the hardest track on the album. My nigga soul str8 battling a nigga from Grape Street Watts. Soul handled his own with Daylyt, pound for pound it was a great battle. One of the dope lines mentioned, "He know the Heat Blow/ is like Daffy at the Casino/ nigga u better Duck" lol
    • A-Game
      I don't wanna shit on you bro, but that line impressed you? In battle rap they say way more crazier lines than that. That was light lol

    Sapiosexual stood out the most to me

    This is a very unique album. The sounds are so different. And Sapiosexual will literally mind fuck you. Like he'll have you thinking of a sexual word before the hook.
