#TEAMASOKA

[fusion_text]

Grew up watching wrestling – idolizing the giants on the screen. As a teenager, I would tell myself that I’d do a wrestling-themed music video one day. Surprisingly it ended up happening organically. I was nominated for best hip-hop act by VH1 overseas and around that time Sonjay Dutt, the current X-Division champion from Impact Wrestling, had invited me to create a new entrance theme for him. He introduced me to a few of the guys when they were doing motion capturing work for one of the WWE 2K video games.

I was new in LA at the time and had never been to Roscoes. So later in the week, we ended up going there and it was then that I found out how much some of these guys loved hip-hop.

Over the next few weeks we started playing around with a beat, a couple of the guys threw some verses down and told me about other wrestlers who would love to be on this record too. And the next thing you know – I had a record with 7 wrestlers on it. Kind of a surreal moment, given that during the process, I had become friends with many of the same people I had seen on TV for years.

It’s been one of the coolest experiences of my life. I released the video a couple days ago and Sports Illustrated featured it on their website.

Scheduling was tough so not everyone could make it in the video. MVP, Sonjay Dutt, and “Disco Dave” (a former WWE & TNA Champion who wishes to remain anonymous on the song) are on the album version of the track. Which is available world-wide on iTunes right now.

The World Champion!

Got world champions on my album. So yeah, this album’s about to kick some ass! #MyCoStarsAreBetterThanYours Photo by: Erika Lane Enggren

I’ve been sitting on this album for a moment. Going to release it when I’m ready; on my own terms. It’s my love letter to music. A piece of work that I’m comfortable being defined by. Collaborated with some amazing people on this. Humbled to create art with each and every one of you. The world is dark but creating this album brought me freedom and had me free from concern. Catch me soon… On your playlists and right here, at ReliveHipHop.com.

The Rolling Stone Interview – The Asoka

Rolling-Stone-Quote-Asoka-July-2016

Mad love to Rolling Stone Magazine and especially their team in Mumbai, India! For four years, I’ve been quietly working on my sophomore album, The Asoka Hustle. The album wraps this week and the time for resurgence is this Fall. Thank you enormously to everyone who shared my vision and chose to be a part of my beautiful chaos. I love you all.

My conversation with Rolling Stone…

Remembering Fatal…

  “As some of you know 2Pac‘s music has had a huge influence on me. It was his music that initially turned me onto Hip Hop music. The same can be said for his group of brothers, “The Outlawz.” Fatal and Noble, from The Outlawz, were the first artists to take the time to talk with me, […]
