"DOPEFILES REVIEW"

"His sound is clearly strongly developed three mixtapes deep. What I like about Abyss Da Dark is that his music has that early 90s underground, conscious, hip hop sound. Listening to his latest mixtape, Liquor and Love Songs, I get flashbacks of De La Soul, The Roots, Talib Kweli, and Common… that GOOD hip hop for the soul, though he attributes the acts of the latter 90s to his musical ear– such as Lauryn Hill, Nas, and Eminem. His tracks such as“Should’ve Went” and “And For That I Thank You” are smooth beats with easy hooks that carries the mind away. His lyrics are real, witty, and his flow makes rhyming look easy as he continues to flip and change the melodies over a single beat. He’s one to look out for". - DOPEFILES.COM


"LASTPLANETOLAGOS"

"Brooklyn based rapper Abyss Da Dark has collaborated with producer Panama Red for this solid J Dilla tribute titled ‘From My Heart With Love’. The first single of album is ‘Things You Like’ and we’re totally loving the quality of production on it" - LastplanetoLagos


"L'CREME NATION APPROVES"

"Abyss Da Dark is a good rapper, and a better person" - David L'Creme


"Breakdown Of Abyss Da Dark"

Abyss da Dark is a talented up and coming MC hailing from Brooklyn who has bars for days. I was put on to him a couple months ago and didn’t expect to like what I heard but I was pleasantly surprised with what this cat has to offer. The tracks on his project, Forever and a Day are not only instant head boppers but Abyss is definitely one of those people whose got a natural talent for storytelling. It’s something quite rare nowadays, his words are like stories that you don’t want to end, very cohesive, natural and genuine. " - BT-DUBS.COM


"Megatron Approves"

This is my homie Abyss Da Dark doin his thing at the Karma Lounge. Here he’s performing “We Here”. Those sound dudes need to get it in check haha. I’ll be reposting “Forever and a Day” on here cuz that project is too ill for words. - Hail Megatron

Bio

Taking pride in lyrical prowess is the school in which A.B. was brought up in. Engaging in cyphers and battles was a means to sharpen one’s blade as well as gain notoriety. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, A.B. is no stranger to proving oneself a capable wordsmith in huddled groups of emcees and spectators. Differentiating himself by mixing humility and honesty with his aggressive delivery, A.B. evokes emotions while commanding attention and respect.

Since 2014 A.B. has performed consistently at a slew of venues, colleges and festivals. From SOB’s, Smash Studios, Long Island University (LIU), Fordham University, Brooklyn Bazaar, the Dream On Festival in Pittsburgh, PA, the International African Arts Festival and the Brooklyn Music Festival on Governors Island. He has also opened for Joey Bada$$ at Public Assembly and for Nitty Scott, MC at The Paper Box.

With the release of his Appreciation Day EP, A.B. continues to carve a path through heartfelt performances and emotion filled lyrics. Armed with an undying passion for music and a solid team, A.B. has no plans on stopping.
