Ab-Soul and the family record store

Before he was Ab-Soul, he was the kid who hung out in Magic Disc Music record store, a shop owned by his grandfather and managed by his mother. According to Ab-Soul, his crib was in the store, but just as his career was beginning to take form, the store closed. It was a monumental moment for the rapper, as he never got to see his CD sold in his family's store, but it gave him the drive to keep pursuing.
