Ab-Soul’s Return Will Continue With ‘The Intelligent Movement Tour’ This Summer

In January, Ab-Soul asked LeBron James to “A&R the next album.” Will King James and the Los Angeles Lakers still be playing basketball come June? That’s anyone’s guess. But we know undoubtedly that Ab-Soul will be on his The Intelligent Movement Tour, beginning on June 2, as announced today, April 5:

Ab-Soul dropped Herbert last December, his first album since 2016’s Do What Thou Wilt. “It’s satisfying, if not always delightful, to see that those rap nerd tendencies haven’t left him,” Uproxx wrote of the album, also applauding Ab-Soul for “endeavoring to discuss more earthbound subjects on Herbert even when those topics get dark.”

More recently, Ab-Soul celebrated his birthday in February with an NPR “Tiny Desk Concert,” where he performed Herbert tracks “Message In A Bottle,” “It Be Like That,” “FOMF,” “Fallacy,” “Do Better,” and “Gotta Rap.”
