Ab-Soul Likens Puff Daddy To Mentor, Explains "These Days
“I met Diddy through [ScHoolboy] Q,” Ab-Soul said in an interview with MTV. “You know, Q calls himself Puffy, as well. After we exchanged numbers, he just kind of really just became a lot like a mentor to me. So it was just real profound to me to try to get Puffy and Puffy on the same song.”
Soul says Puff Daddy also provided another element to the track.
“That was a Biggie reference, too,” Soul said. “That was the end of the ‘B.I.G. Interlude’ on Life After Death, so that was super profound — to have Puffy do that for me, to make that reference.”
Soulo recently revealed several artists who influenced him, including Drake, Jay Z and Lupe Fiasco.
