Ab-Soul released his third studio offering These Days back in 2014, and has since made several guest appearances on songs such as Danny Brown's "Really Doe" and the Bas "Housewives" remix. As fans of the TDE signee wait for word on his upcoming album, he gifted fans with the new single "Huey Knew" -- which arrived Thurs. night (Sept. 29).

"Huey Knew" starts off with Ab-Soul channeling the famous Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song as he raps, "This is a story all about how/ my life flipped, turned upside down". The Del Amo native continues to drop quick-witted puns about his lyrical impact like "They speak highly of me when I raise my voice/ I gotta shoot a f---ing free-throw to make my point." The sinister track also sees a feature from Da$h, who may appear on the MC's forthcoming album. 

2016 has been an eventful year for the TDE imprint as Kendrick Lamar dropped the surprise album Untitled Unmastered, Schoolboy Q's fourth album Blank Face  bowed at no. 2 on the Billboard 200, and Isaiah Rashad's The Sun's Tirade peaked at no. 17. With 2016's end approaching, "Huey Knew" may just be the tease the world has been waiting for since 2014. "He's officially in the game now... go get em @abdashsoul", TDE CEO Anthony Tiffith says in a tweet. "it's ur time #TDE".
