It's been a long minute since Asher Roth burst onto the scene with his fratboy anthem "I Love College". Things have changed since then, and Asher is ready to tell the world exactly how on his new album RetroHash.

“This should explain where I’ve been the past 4 years,” Asher said of his prolonged absence from the rap game.

“[The album] is more focused on songs and ideas and feels,” he said. “I’m not trying to pull a fast one on anyone. I’m just doing stuff that I know is why people fell in love with me in the first place.”

The album will arrive January 7th, and will be produced entirely by Blended Babies.
