Hometown: Moreno Valley, CA

Flowing between influences like Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, and early Travis Scott, Asha’s lack of fear is put on full display throughout his debut album, Full Disclosure—a true exhibition of being young and free. Whether it be picking up some clippers and giving his friends a clean cut, working on a cover design in Photoshop for the first time, or experimenting with new places to take his music, Asha dives in fully to everything he tries.

Coming out of the slow moving Moreno Valley, Asha had to be constantly looking for the next interesting thing to do and he carries that sense of exploration to RBTI. “I like to think that my upbringing has been parallel to my development as an artist," he says. "All of the speed bumps and obstacles that life has put in my path have gone into the music. I only turned 18 a few months ago, so as I’m finding my way in life you can hear it in my work.”
