Ab-Soul has sought advice from his higher power: Jay Electronica. Ab appeared on MTV’s RapFix Live alongside Reakwon, yesterday, and talked about how Electronica’s influence has inspired him to make some life changes.

In getting to know the New Orleans rapper– who has yet to drop his album– Ab said that music is what binds them. “He’s just a deep dude,” Ab-Soul explained. “He’s really who he is. Man, he’s the Black God! He’s a fan of my music and he connects with me on that level. I think we touch on a lot of the same things. He just hit me up out the blue.”

Electronica even inspired the avid weed-smoker to get off drugs telling him that “the brain already has all of the chemicals that all of these drugs have,” therefore outside substances are just a “crutch.”

Elsewhere in the interview Ab talks the non-existent Black Hippy album, which he now calls “Detox 2,” and gets industry advice from Rae.
