Friday’s tunes come from Seattle artist A.S.H.E.S the Chosen. Over the last few years, A.S.H.E.S has gone from indie-rapper to a national act all the while pushing the boundaries of urban music. Off the heals of 2 successful performances at SXSW and a nearly sold out show in his hometown, he has released his latest mixtape titled The Fist Call.
He sent us a copy to checkout and we liked it. A.S.H.E.S definitely has some lyrical talent. On the Mixtape he speaks a lot about the problems in this country with race and does it with a great voice and just the right amount of grit to keep you engaged. Another thing I was digging about the mixtape was the hooks on the records, they will definitely get stuck in your head.
Stream The First Call below and leave your thoughts in the comments. If you dig it, look for A.S.H.E.S on the Flyer Learning Tour, coming to a city near you.
