"Tree of Life"

"I got most of you mothaf----s stumped," Ab boasts on "Tree of Life." "Rap like I go church with work in the trunk." Producers Curti$$ King and DJ Dahi chop up Eric B. & Rakim's '87 classic "Paid in Full" to provide Ab a musicscape for his labyrinthine rhyme approach, always mining the inner workings of a street cat.
