So it feels like it’s time to let everyone just spread their wings and do the things that they want to do.”

Abstract especially has been focusing more on solo music as of late. Back in May, he announced a new solo album is currently in the works, which will follow his 2019 album Arizona Baby. On July 16, he dropped a brand new single “Slugger,” which featured rappers $not and Slowthai.
