Since the end of September, Ab-Soul has released two new singles, “Huey Knew,” featuring Da$h, and “Braille,” featuring Bas, giving a hint toward a new album DWTW is on the way. His last album, These Days…, was released in Summer 2014. There had been speculation that label TDE was responsible holding up the album, especially given the fact that Ab shared his frustration about his place within the label’s roster earlier this year. A couple of days ago, however, TDE CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith let everyone know that he was tired of being blamed for the delay of DWTW, and he went on suggest that it was Soul’s own fault that the album wasn’t out yet.
“@abdashsoul & @MixedByAli holding up his album,” wrote Tiffith on Twitter, tagging both Ab-Soul as well as TDE’s esteemed in-house engineer. “I’m done takin the blame… they need 2 get da mixes right.” Tiffith wrote expressing his dissatisfaction apparently with the DWTW mixes that Soulo and Ali have presented him with, even though he had said that he had received the album’s final mixes in August.
Top Dawg also told Soulo and Ali that he wanted the album finished by the time he gets back to L.A. “I just told my bosses (the fans) what the hold up is,” he wrote to his two signees. “Now I’m about 2 put my foot down. Have it done when I get back.”
Ab-Soul has now responded to TD’s tweet directly, writing, “Yo @dangerookipawaa headed to the stu wit @MixedByAli and @MoosaTDE right now.” In addition to Ali, joining Soulo in the studio was Tiffith’s own son, Moosa.
Hopefully this means that fans can get the album very soon!
