Anyone heard his new album?

Am soo addicted to this track



Some good tracks and 'Mafia Music' remix with The Game, Ja Rule & Fat Joe is kinda hot too...

Wasn't expecting much from him, thought he was a no-body just beefing with 50 to get himself on the map, but am pleasantly surprised....

Alot of the stuff Hectic classes as commercial really isn't its just stuff he doesnt class as Hip Hop which is quite snooty.
I like French Montana and Max B who are far from commercial yet due to their style Im guessing they would not be allowed in his thread

The Clipse tend to be pretty under-rated due to their lack of commercial success but they tear tracks apart.
*thinks about uploading the 'We Got It For Cheap' series*

I could just steal links too lol but Im uploading them to my Megaupload account anyway.
I think both are solid Ross' was solid but had some weird tracks like the Robin Thicke one, if that isn't going to be released as a single why was it on there? I liked:
Mafia Music
In Cold Blood
Valley Of Death
Usual Suspects
Rich Off Cocaine

Cigar Music should have been on there instead of a bonus track

Asher Roth was good I like the way his subject matter was quite diverse and different from the norm.
As I Em was always going to be a good track I also liked
Lark on My Go Kart
La Di Da (I knew it was going to be decent when I saw it was a Don Cannon track)
Be by Myself
Fallin

I didnt really take to Blunt Cruising

La Di Da is my anthem... that beat is... WOW

The CD ended weird though, Fallin, His Dream, Lion's Roar and Sour Patch Kids are slowly growing on me but holds it back from the 8/10/4/5

Bonjour haters. Asher Roth's debut album "Asleep In The Bread Aisle" currently sits at #1 on the US iTunes album chart. Yeah #1. Oh and it's #3 in Canada. The only reason it isn't #1 out here is because we don't love college quite as much.

According to a press release that just hit my eyeballs, the album is also selling out in stores with many retailers getting in re-orders after only the first day of availability. This is something that used to happen frequently with new releases (I know 'cause I worked at 3 music stores) but it isn't too much of a common occurrence anymore.

Asher Roth will be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 28th and backed by the Roots on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on a TBD date...oh yeah and Rick Ross' album came out HAHA.

Fun fact: My favourite song on "Asleep..." is "Fallin'."
Awesome news !
