Asher Roth Talks ‘Greenhouse Effect’, Def Jam History, And ‘RetroHash’ Cover Art [VIDEO]

After several attempts at releasing a proper follow-up to 2009’s Asleep In The Bread Aisle, Asher Roth is finally ready to deliver a memorable LP.

On Saturday, the former XXL Freshman performed selective cuts from RetroHash, as well as classics in his music catalog at The Westway in NYC that brought the house down. Ahead of his Apr. 22 release date, Asher aims to revisit his former glory days with an official full-length that he describes as moody, reflective and introspective. Two singles (“Fast Life” featuring Vic Mensa and “Tangerine Girl”) have already gained a positive reception from his diehard fans.

Just hours before the show, XXL had an opportunity to chop it up with the Morrisville, PA spitter about his Greenhouse Effect series, his history with Def Jam and how his album art came together. Watch our interview above and check out John Van Hamersveld’s graphic below in case you missed it.
