I think I speak for most of APR’s true, longstanding fans when I say that this provides an explanation for all of the unanswered questions we have been concocting in our minds since his success in 2009. It’s like all of his music following Asleep has been our best kept secret- a secret that just couldn’t be appreciated outside of his circle of true fans. I’ve always admired the candidness of Asher Roth and his unwavering ability to adequately articulate his emotions, whether that’s in an interview, his music, his freestyles, his Twitter, his blog, etc. This letter is cool. It’s just really fucking cool because how many times have we been like, “WHAT IS ASHER DOING RIGHT THIS SECOND? WHERE IS HIS ALBUM? WHY ISN’T HE DOING ANYTHING PRODUCTIVE?” It’s cool to know that every outlet he pulled in the music industry was working against him and it never stopped him from producing.
"Do your thing. Do it every day. Do it unapologetically. Don’t be discouraged by criticism. You probably already know what they’re going to say. Pay no mind to the fear of failure. It’s far more valuable than success. Take ownership, take chances and have fun. And no matter what, don’t ever stop doing your thing.”
Here’s to taking the scenic route and here’s to you, Ash Paul.
It’s been almost 4 years since Asher’s debut. He’s been dropping so many dope tracks and mixtapes, but his second album keeps getting pushed back. I’m growing impatient.

HI just want to ask, do you know of any other Asher blogs? I like your blog by the way, glad you share the Asher love!
Thank you! Well there’s hahayo which is run by Asher and his crew. There is also a fyasherroth but it hasn’t been updated in over 2 years.
