My buddy @azucarroc brought this awesome mask (courtesy of @finnbalor) for us to use in the #TeamAsoka music video. I wanted to be like my heroes Batman and Chico El Luchador. But unfortunately, I couldn't breathe very well in this mask and ended up crying for seven hours instantly after this photo was taken.
 El Asoka Libre will return shortly. I’m so honored he’s taken over my account. Until he returns, here’s a photo of me enjoying the #CaliforniaSunshine  I’m training for something big.

Skylar Grey’s New Record…

 The Asoka & Skylar Grey in LA July 2013

Got to chop it up with this lovely lady again at her record release party in Los Angeles. Man, this girls talented. She’s becoming one of my favorite song writers… Check out Skylar’s album “Don’t Look Down” if you haven’t already! She’s responsible for writing some of the biggest hits in recent times.  And just the way she does it is so poetic!

Cheers!

The Asoka & Asher Roth in LA July 2013

You gotta create the kind of music that’ll make you happy.

Had a nice convo with Asher Roth recently. His new mixtape The GreenHouse Effect Vol. 2 just released last month! Asher kills it as usual and… so did Justin Bieber? Biebs raps on a track called “Actin Up” and it’s definitely a stand out track! Wish these two would have put out that “Best of Both Worlds” type of project that was rumored a couple years ago…
