Aight, well I’m officially excited for Asleep In The Bread Isle but it’s taken a lot for me to get to this point. His single “I Love College” was catchy but just not my deal since it sounded like he struggled too hard to a backdrop that most rappers could carry with ease. Every release I have heard thereafter, this guy has improved his game. He carries his flow similar to…well you know who. When his delivery is sped up, the similarities between the two are hard to ingore but it’s Asher’s choice of subjects that differentiates the two. Like Em, Ash does tell stories but the content varies from parties to his dedication to the game and the pursuit to make a name for himself like we hear here.

So far this is Asher at his best, but I guess it doesn’t hurt to have Beans and Rock City lace it for good measure (Beans kills it as ordinary). I guess this track is one of the first that gives Roth that “e-street cred” now that he has been co-signed by Sigel and recently Kanye. This beat, again, isn’t one that would be too hard for any rapper to find his way over. But the easy, head-nodding melody allows us to focus on Asher and he manipulates the track well.

Asleep In The Bread Aisle comes out on “National War Against A Plant Day”, I’ll be checkin it out.
