The New Single

Instagram

 Happy and inspired to hang with my guy @rohitsharmacomedian today. #NewBrownAmerica right here. #Repost @rohitsharmacomedian with @get_repost ・・・ I feel inspired. Today was cool, I finally caught up with a guy who I've wanted to meet up with for some time and today was the day we finally connected. It happens "oh we should totally meet, let's do it, hit me up... " then nothing. But we were supposed to link up, a higher power wanted us to meet. I have admired @theasoka from the first time I met him. He is a kind soul, someone you should be lucky to be friends with. A supremely talented Indian rapper, actor and creative. It's easy to be alone or get busy with your daily grind. I recommend taking the time to be kind and link up with those kind of people. You never know who can help inspire you to grow as an individual. Be thankful. Be kind. Eat pizza. #powerinnumbers #americanindian #theasokahustle #bekind  Always a night to remember when you’re with @TheTravelHer.  Life is beautiful in California - it’s where the creative soul is fed and nourished. Words of encouragement and journeys come together to blossom new art. . : @twothirtyfive
 First production meeting (of hopefully many many more to come) with a few of my best friends. This is the #DreamTeam. #FindYourTribe.  Butter Chicken & Thums Up with baby bro before he moves. Beginning to realize how precious “everyday moments” are. Simplest things... Like a nice meal together become sparks of light that guide us through our journey. Through the constant challenges of life - you have to recognize all the “little” moments for what they are... #Blessings.  Spilling coffee on people as we take our photos. Ain’t no thang...
 Happy Diwali to all of you. To all the beautiful souls from every religion, culture, and race. Diwali is the Festival of Lights, for us Hindus. Let’s choose #LOVE over hate and dominate the next year with light, prosperity, and peace! #Om  Shooting with these creative and talented people. #LifeIsGood. #TheAsokaHustle.  Happy 25th Anniversary, Conan! I have met some of the most wonderful people I’ve known through this show. And those people have impacted my life in such a wonderful way. Use to set my VCR to tape Conan on school nights - Little did I know one day I’d get to be on the show too. Life is fun, and @TeamConan adds a little more to that. #Conan25 PS screenshot from The Conan O’Brien Rap Anthem Video I did years ago
 My self worth, as an artist, is not defined by the number of records I sell. It comes from the euphoria of being completely free from concern when I’m creating - whether it be rapping, writing, breaking down a script and acting. Though recognition and financial success are welcomed... My greatest blessings are the beautiful souls I’ve encountered, connected and collaborated with. #MakaveliBranded. #NeverShady.  Some days I’m up, other days I’m down. Lately I’ve been feeling the LA City Blues... As all artists do. Yesterday, during my sister’s birthday brunch, Richard Lewis (who I grew up watching on Curb) told me I’m witty and to never lose my passion. We had a really nice conversation about acting, comedy, writing and even rapped together. It really lifted my spirits - sometimes the universe tells you exactly what you need to hear. #RichardLewis  🇮🇳New Delhi vibes on Melrose. 🇺🇸 . . . . . #Portrait #PortraitMode #Mood #Moods #IndianAmerican #Hollywood #Melrose #California #Californians #Actor #Rapper #ShotOniPhone #Photography #Yellow #Orange #IndieHustle #IndieMusic #IndieFilms #IndieArtist #NewDelhiNights #HollywoodNights #NewDelhi

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, […]

We Shootin’

Ah, made you look. You’re just a slave to a page in my rhyme book. The Humble Hustle crew is back together… workin’ on #TheAsokaHustle.
