Ab-Soul discusses recording "These Days..." at Mac Miller's home, among other things.
Ab-Soul delivered a banger yesterday which featured ScHoolboy Q, "Hunnid Stax." Although Mac Miller wasn't credited on the track, mid-record you can hear Mac drop a few slow-paced bars before the track picks up pace again. Now in a new interview with XXL, Soulo reveals that Mac Miller's L.A. crib was where the majority of his recording sessions for These Days...Â went down, so it's unsurprising Mac got a few lines in (and we can always hope for a full feature on the upcoming LP).
Soul revealed,Â "I recorded most of it at Mac Millerâs house. Very nice house in LA. We had a lot of fun. Thatâs rap camp. [Laughs] Heâs moving, too, unfortunately. Heâs upgrading, but we had a lot of fun in that red room. Very psychedelic, you could lose track of time. Just open the door and itâs daylight. People like recording there âcause of the vibe. All the artists you named [ScHoolboy Q, Vince Staples], great artists. We just go in there and have fun."
A few other interesting facts came up when Ab was asked if JMSN and Jhene Aiko are going to make the album: "Yeah, theyâre my guys. They blessed me on the album. You can definitely look for them on there," he replied."
He also provided an update on when you can expect Longterm 3, "I just gotta make sure Iâm rich first. You know what I am saying? ThatÂ Longterm 3Â is the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Thatâs the whole concept. When you heard that I got rich, youâll probably see that coming very soon. If that happensâ¦a dollar is a funny thing, too. Todayâs rich might be tomorrowâs rich. Just hope for the best."
These Days... drops on June 24th.
