Shouts to Boyder (second from the left in the picture below) for this great clip of Asher rocking a massive crowd in Milwaukee.
I’ll never forget when Asher’s manager who discovered him- my good friend Scooter Braun (pictured here on the left) told me about him a few years ago. I checked out what is now considered his classic mixtape the Greenhouse Effect and I was sold. Since then I’ve put so many people on to Asher that I’ve felt like his publicist so it’s especially great to see where he’s at now.
This project- compiled and produced by The Alchemist- is packed with some of my favorite samples and Fashawn raps over them with a thoroughly dope flow. Download HERE
Last night Activision and Myspace put together a last minute Jay-Z concert at the Blender theater in NYC to celebrate Blueprint 3 and the upcoming DJ Hero videogame. Here’s some highlights.
Jay also made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. Hilarious how he calls Dave out on a bad segway!
Apparently this only had a budget of $250 dollars. Turned out fresh anyway!

Inspired by Bob Marley!
Kid can rap, he’s just a chorus away…
This is the first leak off his upcoming project with Alchemist entitled The Antidote.
Dopeness that’s a bonus track on the Japanese version of Loso’s Way.
There’s a very good reason for the hype around this kid. Honest and clever lyricism should always win. This new song is an example of that.
Here’s an opportunity to check out a dope video and to support 2 of the freshest people I know- go to iwantmymusic.mtv.com and vote for J*DaVeY
