Cole) and finds the pair contrasting street-edged rhymes with a bouncy hook. Directed by fellow Philadelphia native Benny Boom, the man behind the much-hyped Tupac Shakur biopic, All Eyez On Me, the visual brings out refined aesthetic to Philly’s grittiness. Be on the lookout for AR-Ab’s forthcoming project titled Road To Glory, which is slated for release later this year via OBH Records/Sony Red
Having been a mainstay in the Philadelphia rap scene for some years, AR-Ab is no stranger to getting things via the road less traveled. Serving as a founding member of the OBH collective, Ab was thrust into the mainstream consciousness when he was famously name dropped on Drake’s on seminal “Back To Back.” After a short-lived affiliation Birdman’s Cash Money Records, Ab take matters into his own hands, releasing the first installment of his mixtape series titled “The Protocol. Vol.1.”
