I usually can’t think of anything but the old single, “I Love College” when I hear Asher Roth’s name. Many people may not realize that the 28-year-old hip-hop artist is trying to be more than just a one hit wonder.
Today (April 22nd, 2014), he is scheduled to release his new album RetroHash. The album offers further evidence that Roth is more than just the voice for America’s gross (but awesome) college culture. With tracks like Pot of Gold and Keep Smokin, Roth’s music taps into a more chill and relaxed vibe that I honestly didn’t expect. The artists featured on the album, such as Chuck Inglish and Curren$y, provide a large spectrum of sounds and energies that prevent the album from getting boring. Give it a listen. You’ll be surprised by what you hear.
