TDE will be rolling out their fifth project of the year with Ab-Soul's DWTW this week. In addition to sharing the project's Dec. 9 release date Monday (Dec. 5), Soulo unleashed a dark new track called "Threatening Nature," produced by PakkMusicGroup.

The song finds the rapper spewing venomous bars for three minutes: "This HiiiPower sh-- is limitless/ You tryna f--- a model/ And I'm trying to deflower Queen Elizabeth/ Just to be precise, who knew that Genesis really meant/ The genealogy of ISIS, this sh-- ridiculous/ The chicken came before the egg is my hypothesis and/ This ain't a album, this an algorithm."

Last month, TDE CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith scolded Soul and the label's engineer Derek "Mixed By Ali" Ali on Twitter for holding up the album. Ab-Soul's previous releases include "Huey Knew" and "Braille," featuring Dreamville's Bas.
