We've said it quite a few times over the past year or so, but Ab-Soul isn't Top Dawg Entertainment's weak link - in fact, we still think he could prove to be one of its brightest talents (the label features Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, SZA, Usaiah Rashad etc). The conscious member of any rap group will always struggle against 'banger creators', but it only takes a few bars from 'Tree Of Life' to understand why we like this guy so much.

The track is taken from his forthcoming LT3 mixtape, which follows 2012's Control System (it's well worth picking up). Check it out below.
