Asher Roth + Nottz [Raw] = "THE RAWTH"
Asher Roth and Nottz have been collaborating a lot lately! First doing so on Nottz' long-overdue debut album, You Need This Music:. During those sessions, they struck up a friendship and recorded a gaggle of additional tracks. So much so, that they're prepping a (Free?) EP - THE RAWTH out Dec. 27. From the 4 pieces that have "leaked," the ones featured below are, in my opinion, the best of the bunch. While all of released tracks are good, these really showcase the collaboration and each artist's progression best. Here, we have some crazy sample selection ["diggin'"] from Nottz (Misfits and Joanna Newsom originals below) and Asher's ever-increasing rhyming skills. As a result, I can't wait to hear what other "left-field" beats are on the final EP!
