Well look who’s back. After hitting us with a couple freestyles back in October, over Kanye’s “No More Parties In LA” & Action Bronson’s “Terry” to name couple, Pennsylvania rapper Asher Roth decides to return to the scene today and share his latest installment in his never-ending “Ash Wednesday” series, which technically arrives on Thursday now that it’s midnight but you get the point.
Over the minimalistic, bass-heavy production, Asher leaves the catchy vibes at home for this one and delivers a cerebral stream of consciousness that finds him rapping about the injustices in America, gun control, government system, & more. No hook or funny business here, just some clear-minded raps which Asher admits are meant to be heard, and not just some rapid fire shit. “So I don’t rhyme fast on my tracks, you hear what i say/ sell a dime, to a pay ya mom back get locked in a cage,” he spits.
Take a listen to the lyrical onslaught and let us know what you think.
Get your mind right for what? minimum wage
When it’s 40 hours retail till Comcast paid
So I don’t rhyme fast on my tracks you hear what I say
Sell a dime to a pay ya mom back get locked in a cage
It’s ridiculous the system consistently sticks its dick in us
Kicking no resistance hitting us till we’ve given up
Y’all kidding if you thinking i ain’t bending down to pick us up
The only way they listen is pick a beat and rip it up
