Ab-Soul has announced that his Do What Thou Wilt. followup is “comin soon.”

The TDE artist took to social media to give an update on the album (and his life in general), hinting that new music is on the horizon. He first shared his appreciation for Coi Leray, who he called “the flyest right now,” followed by his positive thoughts on Robin Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis, Quinta Brunson, Laci Mosley and Skye Townsend’s A Black Lady Sketch Show. He then gives a shoutout to Tevin Campbell as Powerline in the 1995 classic A Goofy Movie before ending it with this tweet: “That’s all I got right now… Album comin soon…”

Soulo’s last full-length release dates back to 2016’s Do What Thou Wilt., which featured appearances from ScHoolboy Q, Bas, Zacari, TDE president Punch, SZA, Rapsody and the late Mac Miller. The record peaked at No. 34 on the Billboard 200 and No. 9 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, and the artist previously shared with HYPEBEAST that the title is a famous quote from Mr. Crowley. “To me, it translates to free will. Not necessarily “do what you wanna do”—‘cause that’s kinda chaotic—but do what you will to do,” he said. “Will being stronger than a want. Something that’s supported by love and passion. That’s what that quote means to me, and you know I’m a man of quotes. That’s just one of those that resonated with me the most.”

Stay tuned for more info on Ab-Soul’s upcoming album.

Elsewhere in music, J. Cole is expected to earn the biggest opening week of 2021 so far with The Off-Season.
