Video: Asher Roth – The Reading

In Hip Hop by Katie Allen

Asher Roth has really come into his own with this smart but feel-good track. Produced by the legend Nottz and with the visual directed by CHIMP, it centres around a young boy and his daily life in the streets whilst hanging out with his olders – clever lyrics and he’s really mastered his flow!

“Hip-hop is still alive, and I am living proof
And in order to improve we must kill it at the root,
Shooting for the knees not until you see these pupils
Useful youthful exuberance,
Music refutes that abuses the rules…”

Asher is headlining The Garage Islington on 20th Feb with support from Chima Anya & Kid Fury.
