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. It looks like he's been cooking up new music though.
The record verges on indie rock, with groovy, guitar-driven production and a sung hook. Asher brings out the typically witty rhymes for his verses, while he continues to fall further away from the "I Love College" raps that defined him many years ago. Shout out Lykke Li, where has she been at?
Like Lykke Li but she might think I'm creepy
Three strikes yikes need to tighten up the lead
I'm the nicest in the league but the hype think I've peaked, sike
Yeah right, still sucking on the teet
When I be up on the beat, leave the seat up on you geeks
