Win This War – Official Music Video!

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” – Rumi 

The quote above speaks volumes to me. I think every artist can relate to the fact that, we have to do, what we do… It’s not really an option. The art runs through our veins. Welcome to the War of Art! A war that I plan on winning…

Be a part of my battalion. Enjoy the video. Send it in to your favorite blogs, post it on your favorite websites or message boards! Share it on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Tumblr! Email it to a friend! Whatever you’d like! Let’s just knock this one out the park!

Much love and special thanks to: Naia Kete, RawKey, PappaArtwork, and Tec!

Win This War!

Win This War

Coming out of the gates with my guns blazing! The official first single off “Lions In The West” arrives today. It’s called “Win This War” and features the talented Naia Kete (from NBC’s The Voice). Produced by super producer RawKey!

Listen To The Fortune Cookie…

 I always love going back home to Detroit. I cherish every opportunity I get to spend time with my family, eat home cooked meals, and shoot the shit with childhood friends… It’s where I grew up. Is it sad? Sure. Detroit’s not the easiest place to grow up in. But over the years I developed […]

Win This War (The Arrow Cut) – The Asoka featuring Naia Kete

This summer I had the pleasure of working on a song with the talented Naia Kete, though the song is inspired by the humble hustle that so many artists are on, I also found inspiration in Arrow, an American television series. It’s quickly becoming one of my favorite shows!

The song featured above is titled “Win This War.” Enjoy the sneak peak for now and make sure you watch the season premiere of Arrow, this Wednesday, on the CW network!

I’ll hit you guys with the official video next month!

#ThankYou

VH1 India Wishes The Asoka Happy Birthday

Today I feel thankful. Thankful for the people in my life, the love that I’ve been given, the talent that God has bestowed upon me,  the support that I’ve received because of that and… just thankful for the life that I’ve been given.

I woke up today to beautiful messages, texts, emails etc from people all over the world wishing me for my Birthday. I don’t know the majority of these people… my only connection to them is the music that I make… And that in itself is such a beautiful feeling!
