Ab-Soul Raps Along To Lil Wayne We Pimpin Yall Simpin

A few days ago, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul released episode 1 of his “These Days Tour” vlog that was directed by Slick Jackson, which you can check out below.

Near the end of this video at the 4:10 mark, the West Coast rapper can be seen rapping along every word to Lil Wayne‘s “We Pimpin’, Y’all Simpin’” song. If you are not familiar with this track, it can be found on the Young Money The Mixtape Vol. 1 mixtape that dropped back in 2005.

I guess it’s cool to see Ab-Soul is a fan of Weezy F Baby. The Black Hippy member has also referenced Weezy in a couple of his songs that you can see here!

Chief Keef Releases A Song Dedicated To Lil Wayne

While it’s a quiet weekend, I’ve decided to post up this new Chief Keef song called “Wayne” off his upcoming mixtape Back From The Dead 2, which I guess is some sort of a dedication to Lil Wayne.

It’s not the easiest thing in the world to understand Keef‘s lyrics, but from what I hear on the track he is giving props to Tunechi, Birdman, Mack Maine, Young Money, and Cash Money.

Chief Keef previously referenced Weezy F Baby on a record titled “Murda” back in 2012: “Smoking Weezy feeling Gucci on that We Be Steady Mobbin’”.

You can stream and download the “Wayne” dedication after the jump below!
