I think all four members of Black Hippy have great potential. Kendrick's on fire, so he overshadow's Ab-Soul's genius. Rock is a boss and I hope he puts out new **** soon. Q puts out the worst releases of the group but some of his songs (Hands On The Wheel) are tight as hell, so he'll find a lot of commercial success.

start with the production

and Ab-Soul has a great, great sounding voice with real presence and serious charisma

inclined to agree with my man Goofle.
nothing about this album screamed 'charisma' or even vaguely interesting.
It didn't really leave an impression at all.

Ab-Soul bores me. Worse rappers keep me entertained through charisma, he has none.

I'm a huge black hippy / TDE fan so initially listening to it I was disappointed. Not one song really grabbed my attention and brought me in. I took it off the playlist in my ipod for a month or so and then came back to it. Upon coming back to it and listening (not just looking for a "banger") I realized how great Soul's lyricism was.

This line for instance...

"I'm light years ahead, I'm bright and I like to get oral sex"

at first glance says he's just smart and likes head. Look at the beggining and end of each line though.

Light and bright reflect the same thing, ahead and oral sex again referencing the same thing. That wasn't on accident.

Another one of his songs "Book of Soul" and the line here...

Ironic we always had the same classes
I copied off your work, and you ain't always had
The right answers but it worked, mama, thanks a lot
Probably wouldn't have graduated had you not

He's talking about his gf at the time, Alori Joh (now deceased who K. Dot had also worked with) who despite being from different social classes (geek/popular) she finally noticed him as a person and gave him a chance and despite them not being the smartest, or wealthiest they got by...

Ab has lyrics for days and can rap circles around Jay Z (he even claims it in a song...) you just can't look at the surface for them.
