Escapism?

Asoka Dane Cook

I always find comedy to be the best kind of escapism. Well, comedy and creating music. Dane Cook‘s CDs have helped me get through some really tough times. I was very pleased to meet him today. Make sure you check out his Under Oath tour this fall! I’ve heard some of his new material and it’s hilarious!

What are somethings you guys do to escape from a bad day, boredom, or just to make your day a little brighter? Leave me your thoughts in the comments below & I’ll check em out!

‘Man Of Steel’ Gets The Rap Soundtrack It Was Missing’ – MTV.com

AsokaSuperman_front_1600

Shout out to MTV for the support! They wrote a beautiful article on my Man of Steel EP!

No matter whether you love ‘Man of Steel,’ or hate it, there’s one thing we can all agree on: it needed a rap recap over the end credits. Luckily, hip-hop artist Asoka provided the soundtrack we all wanted (instead of that stupid Hans Zimmer score we’ve been listening to non-stop oh god it’s so good), complete with raps from both Superman and Zod’s perspective. Ever wanted to hear Zod rap about Atari? Now you can. Hooray!

The Man of Steel EP is a free release consisting of 7 new songs written and recorded by RawKey & myself. The songs are written from Clark Kent & Zod’s perspective and can be downloaded for free right here on ReliveHipHop.com!

The Man of Steel EP!

AsokaSuperman_front_1600

I’ve always been inspired by the Superman character. He stands for truth & justice but at the very core of his being he feels lonely, conflicted and lost. Zack Snyder (the director of Man of Steel) recently said, “He’s the most powerful but also the most vulnerable superhero you could imagine.”

His existence is bittersweet, almost poetic. As a child I was fascinated by the character, and as I grew older, I started relating to the human side of Clark Kent.

Inspired by the release of the new movie… I got together with RawKey, my favorite producer in hip-hop, and decided to pay homage and create our own soundtrack to accompany the feature film.

I can honestly say this is my proudest body of work. I’m honored to share this music with you!
