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…

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 […]

Welcome 2 HySpace: Evolution Muzik!

Every once in a while an artist comes along that redefines his genre of music. I believe J0HNS0L0 is an artist of that calibre. Sometimes you stumble upon a diamond in the underground and that’s exactly what happened when I discovered John’s music. Welcome2Hyspace is easily one of the best Hip-Hop albums made in recent […]

The Man of Steel EP!

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, […]

Through The Eyes Of A Veteran – My Conversation with Hittman!

HIttman and The Asoka

If the West Coast Hip Hop movement were an army, Hittman would be a glorified soldier; a hero amongst his peers. Hittman was the most featured artist on Dr. Dre’s 2001 album! He showcased his skills to the world on 10 songs on the iconic hip-hop album!

His name will forever live on in Hip Hop history. I recently spoke with Hitt on life, music, and the overall ride that the music industry has taken him on…. [Click Here For The Entire Interview]
