Ab-Soul’s new video “Evil Genius,” premiered via GQ, earlier today. The video follows Soulo revising a somber moments in his life with visuals of the home he grew up in (In Carson, Ca. which was burned down) and reflecting on the passing of his former girlfriend Alori Joh.
“It’s just very sincere,” Ab-Soul tells GQ. “The album is a woman-appreciation album, and I can’t help but commemorate my lady. If I were to talk to her today, that would be the tone of my voice. If I had the opportunity, that’s how I would get at her. If you can imagine something like that, I just tried to put that into words.”
“Evil Genius” is off of Ab-Soul’s ‘Do What Thou Wilt’ LP, watch the video above.
