Hip-Hop | Asher Roth – Here To Stay feat. CJ Trillo [Pearly Gates Remix] [Prod. By Jim I.E]

Posted by on August 9, 2013


As Asher Roth was preparing to release his recent Greenhouse Effect Vol. 2 mixtape, he dropped an
acapella version of “Pearly Gates” for fans to put to their own production in a chance to win a pro Soundcloud account. Producer Jim I.E and his right hand man and MC, Cj Trillo, went to work on it. Jim created a completely new sound for the song and fit Asher’s vocals into it as if they were there to begin with. To top it off CJ Trillo adds a verse to the song. Their hard work was rewarded as they won the contest. This one is definitely worth a listen.

Hip-Hop | Asher Roth – Pop Radio x Pearly Gates

Posted by on June 24, 2013


Asher Roth is back to offer up some new knowledge, first for his original single “Pop Radio”, followed by a freestyle over Mobb Deep’s legendary “Pearly Gates”. The former of the two is classic Asher, packed with assonance and witty rhymes that lighten up the more serious message within the song.

In “Pearly Gates”, Roth discusses his struggles within the industry thus far.

“Rick Ross can be a cop, Drake ‘started from the bottom’? No offense, I don’t wanna start a problem but come on, all I ever did was tell you I was a champ at beer pong.”

There is no doubt that Asher has to battle everyday with the image that his hit college music shows him in, however, as soon as people start opening their ears to how much substance is really behind each line, it will only be a matter of time before Ash takes off.
