Asher Roth & Nottz Rawl - Rawth EP

Asher Roth Finally Gets it Right

Do not be dissuaded by Asher's horrible radio releases... As much as I want to not like this guy - every unofficial release he drops is MONEY! The Rawth EP is one of the best mixtapes of the year (meaning I need to reformulate my Top 10 Mixtapes of 2010). 

If your only experience with the white suburbanite MC is from his radio release "I Love College," you are justified in believing this guy is a joke. But... if you stop with that, you may miss out on some of the best underground hip hop in the game. Not close to the best - but one of the best.

Produced by Nottz Raw, a Virginia native who has produced tracks for Snoop, Biggie, Busta, and Kanye, this EP pushes the boundaries of hip hop but stays grounded in the East Coast with hard snares, creative sampling, and a good 'ol boom bap sound. http://www.myspace.com/nottz

So do yourself a favor and download the 8 track EP. RAWTH EP Click to Download
