Rich Gains Feat. Asher Roth, Jonathan Chapman & Leon Q. Allen
You may not be all too familiar with the name Rich Gains, but Im sure you’re aware of his work as he makes up one-half of the production duo Blended Babies. With a new solo album on the way simply called Gains, the multi-talented artist decides to come through today and share the second single off it called “Freedom” featuring frequent collaborators Asher Roth, Jonathon Chapman & Leon Q Allen.
Thursdays are always good for new songs. While some artists promote their singles ahead of time, Asher Roth surprises fans today with the premiere of a new single "Oops" featuring DA Wallach and production from Oren Yoel. It's been a minute since we heard from the RetroHash rapper, he last appeared in June, with the music video for his "Laundry" record with Michael Christmas and Larry June.
Asher Roth Feat. Michael Christmas & Larry June
Asher Roth is making his return after teaming up with Nottz and Travis Barker for an EP in February, Rawther. This time around he gets production from a frequent collaborator, Chuck Inglish, with features from Michael Christmas and Larry June, the latter of whom may be unexpected (he was also featured on Post Malone's mixtape though so he's obviously doing something right).
Chuck Inglish & Blended Babies Feat. Asher Roth
Chuck Inglish and production duo Blended Babies have long been collaborators, however they're coming with their first official joint effort, Ev Zepplin, in the coming weeks. They've slowly been rolling out leaks, and choose today to unleash a cut that features another frequent Blended Babies collaborator, Asher Roth.
Keeping his word, Asher Roth comes through and drops off another #hashWednesday release called “Wanderlust,” (and yes we’re aware it’s Thursday though).
That's All Mine
Asher Roth Feat. Jesse Boykins III
Asher Roth kicks off a new series this Wednesday, Hash Wednesday, where he'll be dropping new music that's been sitting in the stash. As Asher describes it, Hash Wednesday will serve as "an outlet for music & video that may or may not resurface as a finished product but gives plenty of insight" into his current state. The first release in the series is the smooth "That's All Mine," with light, jazzy production from Like (of Pac Div), and a feature from the singer Jesse Boykins III. Take a listen. Check back with us next Wednesday for another instalment in the series.
Make It Work
Blended Babies Feat. Anderson .Paak, Asher Roth & Donnie Trumpet
Blended Babies recently dropped a song called "So Slow" with Anderson .Paak and King Chip. It was pretty smooth. But their new song "Make It Work" gives smooth a whole new meaning. Swirling, filtered, jazzy chords and a simple drum groove give the whole thing a gelatinous, feel-good vibe over which .Paak and Asher Roth are free to do their thing. Simple is beautiful.
His college days far behind him, Asher Roth has recently taken to exploring more esoteric, experimental territory with his music. Yesterday he dropped off "The Hierophant," the second installment of his #hashwednesdays series after "Oren's Not Sure."
Oren's Not Sure
Asher Roth has been delving into more melodic and psychedelic territory on recent releases, but on his latest track, he's gone right back into the humorous rap style he came into the game with. Featuring a noisy industrial beat from Oren Yoel, the track sounds like a pretty spontaneous experiment rather than something that is intended for an actual project.
Asher Roth Feat. Fat Tony
Asher Roth has found a successful creative partnership in production duo Blended Babies, and their new record, "Sushi," might be the pairing's most effective venture yet. Built off of an impossibly bass-y groove, Asher introduces what could be one of his catchiest refrains yet, while he and Fat Tony exchange smirking lines on their respective verses.
Asher Roth shared the video for "That's Cute" last week, and today he's shared the official audio. The record is laced by a heavy sub-bass beat courtesy of Chuck Inglish, and Asher adjusts his flow accordingly, resembling something akin to a classic Cool Kids record. Asher's been experimenting with more psychedelic, live instrumental sounds, so this is one of the purest rap songs he's done in a while.
Blended Babies Feat. Asher Roth, Sir Michael Rocks, Jon B & LIKE
Blended Babies reunited the Cool Kids on their recent track, "On My Own," and it may be the last recorded instance we hear of the duo made up of Chuck Inglish and Sir Michael Rocks (at least under that title), as the latter refuted rumors of a reunion on Twitter this weekend, revealing the Kids were "never coming back".
Blow Yr Head
With today being “Ash Wednesday”, Asher Roth decides to come through and bless us with a new track called “Blow Yr Head”. Hopping on the knockin' production from Nottz, Asher goes crazy with the rhymes, and delivers a 3-minute lyrical onslaught for fans to digest. No word yet as for where this will end up, but it should definitely hold fans over until Asher next project arrives, which he addresses in the first verse here.
N Doe Smoke
Scoop DeVille Feat. Demrick & Asher Roth
The LA Leakers are back again with another exclusive release. After dropping off their 2015 Draft Picks mixtape last week, along with various remixes from Problem and Iamsu, the LA radio station decides to come through and share a new one from Scoop Deville and Demrick called "N Doe Smoke" featuring Asher Roth.
Asher Roth Feat. Buddy
Blended Babies, possibly the most slept-on producers ever, recruit frequent collaborator Asher Roth and Buddy for a new single "Sayin' Whatever." The production duo contributed to Asher's most recent album RetroHash, as well as handling all production on Asher's stand-out/slept-on mixtape
Rapness Monster (Remix)
Boaz Feat. Asher Roth
With Larry Fisherman on the boards and Boaz on the mic, "Rapness Monster" was already a monster of a track. Now, Asher Roth has thrown himself in to the mix. Boaz shares this just a few days before his Rostrum Records debut, Intuition, hits shelves. Showing us that he means business on this remix, Boaz spins some new bars for us so we don't have to wait until Roth's verse to hear something new. When Asher arrives though, he comes in screaming like a lion and goes on to say that his bars are "sharper than a rhino nose." We can't argue.
Fat Raps (Remix)
Big Sean Feat. Chuck Inglish, Asher Roth, King Chip, Dom Kennedy & Boldy James
When Big Sean was coming up his mixtape grind was on point. He dropped three instalments in his Finally Famous series, with the third and final arriving in 2010. He later followed it up with a debut album of the same name, but that didn't really stack up to the mixtapes so we'll gloss over it.
Last Of The Flohicans
Asher Roth Feat. Major Myjah
Asher Roth is getting ready to release his new album, RetroHash, as close to 4/20 as he possibly can (April 22nd, the Tuesday of that week). With the date soon approaching, Asher has been pumping out Blended Babies-produced jams from the project, the latest of which being Last Of The Flohicans. The rock-infused track, featuring a hook from Major Myjah shows Asher's increasing willingness to experiment, which we should be hearing a lot on the new record.
Asher Roth Feat. Vic Mensa
Asher Roth will be releasing his sophomore album, Retrohash, on April 22nd, but today, the album was made available or pre-order on iTunes. With that pre-order, fans can now take a listen to this smooth new record titled “Fast Life”, featuring Chicago's own Vic Mensa.
365 Days (Blended Babies Remix)
ZZ Ward Feat. Asher Roth & King Chip
Production team Blended Babies are back with another dope remix. This time around, the duo decided to remix ZZ Ward’s popular record "365 Days", which now features added verses from Asher Roth and King Chip. "365 Days" is our jam, "A natural remix record for us since we produced the OG version. All organice, new guitars, chords, and drums. Couple friends put some bars on it. Was meant to be happen" - Blended Babies tell VIBE
