SnapG was Ab’s first rap name and he even spit what he remembers from the verse. Soulo goes on to talk about how him and Joey Badass linked to record Enter the Void and explains what Chakras are for people that might not be knowing. Later, Ab states that he learned a lot from reading the Autobiography of Malcolm X and that it opened him up to different possibility and theories. When asked by Nick how he hooked up with Macklemore to record the track Jimmy Iovine, Soulo states that they met on the Groovy tour with Schoolboy Q.
