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.

One of my favorite people in the biz shares incredible insight and inspiration in this

Will doesn’t just turn it on for the camera either. Every time I’ve interviewed him or bumped into him over the years he’s been consistent in exemplifying what he talks about in this clip. He talks a good talk and actually walks the walk!
