Last year, the unbelievable producer 20syl, one member of French DJ group C2C, dropped off one of the most memorable remixes of the year with his bootleg spin on Rihanna’s “Stay”. His downtempo electro-soul twist on the track was begging for someone to rap over, and today I have for you exactly that. Nas co-signed rapper Fashawn has stepped up to the challenge completely re-imagining the song adding fresh new rap verses in between Rihanna's light vocals samples left intact. The chemistry of this song is through the roof, listen below and grab a free download. Enjoy!

Apart of the TDE family alongside Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul just leaked a vicious, near 3 minute, freestyle without any approval from the label, stating "I might get dropped from the label for this 1, but fuck it…"

From puns about Spiderman to dogging on guys wearing capes, Ab-Soul manages to leave no one untouched. Listen to the freestyle below and enjoy!
