(AllHipHop News) Ab-Soul fully embraced battle rap culture when the TDE emcee added a contest between he and Daylyt on his 2014 album These Days. According to a report by Vibe, Soulo shared during his CRWN interview that he is down with his Black Hippy crew taking on Slaughterhouse in a lyrical bout.
“Them Slaughterhouse n***as are the best rapper for sure… The most rapping-est… them n***as rap!” said Ab-Soul. “I’m with it! I told all of them I’m with it!”
Earlier this year the SH members were asked about a potential battle with Ab, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, and Jay Rock. Royce da 5’9″ answered he did not think that particular match-up would work.
“I don’t think that we’re in the same lane,” said Royce. “I think that we get compared to them because we’re crews. But I’m not so sure that me and Schoolboy could really go at each other, with what he does, versus what I do. It’s not really the same thing.”
One of Royce’s comrades had a different perspective about Black Hippy vs Slaughterhouse. Crooked I stated if the battle did take place his team would come out the victor.
“Let me tell you something, that’s not a shot, because I really appreciate what they do,” said Crooked. “But as a rapper, I feel like I’m supposed to believe that. When I get on the court, nobody could see me. That’s just what I’m supposed to do. But that doesn’t stop me from being a fan of other great lyricists.”
