Asher Roth links up with rising Chicago rapper Vic Mensa on his new record "Fast Life." Produced by Blended Babies, the song sheds away Roth's usual bright personality and digs deeper with a story about a girl who has lost her way. With no family to call on, she finds herself living a life that will inevitably catch up to her. On the other hand, Mensa's verse takes a look inside as he raps about his journey through the music industry. The song ends with some smooth scat singing from Donnie Trumpet. This is definitely a side of Asher to embrace. Check out the record below.
"Fast Life" is off Roth's upcoming sophomore album Retro Hash, which comes out April 22. Additional guests on his project include Chuck Inglish, Curren$y, and ZZ Ward. Retro Hash is available for pre-order now on iTunes.
UPDATE: Shortly after sharing the song, Asher Roth also posted a video for it, which shows him walking around downtown L.A. trying to hand out messages from his "message box." Watch it below to find out how people received his messages:
