Asher Roth – G.R.I.N.D.

Remember Asher Roth? The white guy who barely snuck his head in next to


B.o.B. on XXL’s 2009 cover of up-and-coming rappers? The guy whose debut album, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, hit No. 5 in the U.S. last year? This summer, he dropped his first single, G.R.I.N.D. (Get Ready it’s a New Day), off his sophomore album, The Spaghetti Tree, which is being produced by Pharrell and Nottz. The release date is set for December 30.

As the holiday season hits the ground running, contrary to what we hear about “The Great Depression II” being over, many people are still down in the dumps financially. This one’s for those who see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It’s a much more mature sound from Roth, who although he’s probably not struggling himself, does a nice job portraying the common, unkempt man hustling, or grinding, if you will. The song has received universal praise, and it’s a nice start to carving out his own identity, which I hope he does in this album.
