To kick off the new year, New York’s own Asoh Black! begins his #AsohAttacks series, in which he releases 11 songs over the course of 11 weeks culminating with the release of a full project, with a remix of Travis Scott’s “Backyard” carrying the name of HITS (accompanied with a video by Train Productions). The track is accurately named and bodes well for the future of the series, as Asoh shows off a versatile flow shifting effortlessly between approaches emphasizing melody and those emphasizing speed and verbal dexterity.
Lyrically, Asoh is braggadocious but self-aware showing undeniable hunger, the likes of which sends careers to the top, as he makes the original “Backyard” beat his own. Asoh Black has continued to keep his promise of 11 songs over 11 weeks in recent weeks and shows no sign of slowing down. Be sure not to miss what he has in store this year.
