W.R.O.H

Album: These Days (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • The last 19 minutes of this 23 minutes Tae Beast produced track are straight acappella, as Ab-Soul squares off against battle rapper Daylyt trading lengthy verses. "I tweeted out, I wish I could battle rap for real in a league; that would be cool," the T.D.E. rapper told MTV News of the origins of the cut. "And I got a pretty crazy little response from that. Not too long after that, I got a DM from Daylyt; he was like, Yo, why don't we do it? I'm like, Yo, that might actually be crazy."

    Ab-Soul's fellow L.A. artist JSMN joins him on the hook.
  • The song title stands for "We really out here my nigga," which is the last line from Ab-Soul's intro to "Track Two" from his 2012 album Control System.
