Lyricism matters in hip hop again and Ab-Soul is credited for making this shift continue, as is Joey Bada$$. Both are a part of movements that happen to be changing the game right now. This is why both rappers have experienced success while being a part of the popular tour, The Smoker’s Club Tour.
Recently, Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ made a stop in St. Louis, where they got more than what they bargained for. In this sense, rap is a lot like rock, as in the stars cannot go on tour without getting into some controversy. This time, Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ were the ones in hot water.
Following their St. Louis performance, Ab-Soul and Joey Bada$$ were arrested. No official word on what happened, but if someone was taking their lyrics seriously, it’s not a stretch to think marijuana is involved. It is weed charges that get almost every rapper at least once.
