The Life As Shay Report:
New Music from TDE’s Ab-Soul ft. Action Bronson & Asaad. Beware listening to this song, it’s not base level hip-hop…in true Ab Soul style it’s way deeper. “Stigmata” requires one to listen multiple times and maybe even research some lines to get the full picture. The Biblical references are plenty and come quick. Ab Soul sings “I carried the cross and virgin Mary had an abortion…I done died and rose again left these holes in my hands.Stigmata…” But that’s just the chorus, even the corky flows from Action Bronson were laced with Biblical references, he mentioned wanting to exchange love for his right ear (*One of Jesus’ disciples cut off the right ear of a High Priest’s Servant Malchus*). And Asaad closed it out deeming himself a God.
Just when I was sure that the song is blasphemist, it ends..”Some day a simple soul will pick up the book of God, read it and will believe it. And the rest of us will be embarrassed.”
