Ab-Soul Bears The Cross ‘These Days’ For “Stigmata” Video [@abdashsoul @APLUSFILMZ #TheseDays] Bradford J. Howard May 31, 2014 Music, Music Video, News Late last night, while most of us were watching the Indiana Pacers get mercifully and thankfully removed from the Eastern Conference Finals had our attention occupied elsewhere, Ab-Soul took to Twitter to reveal two major things. The first was a confirmation of what Top Dawg Entertainment fans had been hoping for – that yes, Soul-O’s much-anticipated LP These Days album would in fact be arriving next month. On June 24th, to be exact. The second thing Ab-Soul let loose was an official set of visuals for his recent “Stigmata” single. Kept short but sweet, the Dave Free and APLUSZ Films-directed “Stigmata” music video has Soul-O carrying a cross through a barren land like a black-lipped, shades-wearing savior bloodied and adorned in a crown of thorns. It’s visually affecting, and perhaps lets us know that These Days may pack still more of the potent and layered messages that have become Ab-Soul’s staple.
