As calm as he can be, Asher Roth kicks a few lyrics over Inspectah Deck’s “R.E.C. Room”. In other Asher news, he recently scrapped the original title of his forthcoming album. Too much orange.
Juan Epstein kicked off their new season with guests: actor Andy Samberg, Ron Artest and Ice Cube. The interview is nearly two hours long, but Ron’s portion begins at the 35:00 mark. Listen to it here.
Obviously, they weren’t serious. But during their recent visit with Peter Rosenberg, Tyler, Earl and Domo gave a humorous interpretation of The Throne’s track. Uh, hold the tomato.

This @funkmasterflex vs. Power 105.1 thing has 2 stop. Imagine if Flex used this much energy 2 break a new artist. He has the power to do so—

So here’s the skinny. Last Friday, yours truly called out Hot 97′s Funkmaster Flex for putting too much energy into his beef with Power 105.1—instead of breaking records. Dialogue followed and Flex told me to make a list of 10 songs that I felt were overlooked for NYC radio play.
It wasn’t an easy task. And after listening to a string of recent releases, here’s a list of recordings that I felt had the most potential for the airwaves. Here they are: in no particular order.
1. Trouble “U Don’t Deserve Dat”
2. 360- “Own Thing”
3. 3′D Natee- “No Love”
4. Curren$y “Chasing Paper”
5. L.E.P. Bogus Boys “Kush & Leather“
6. Angel Haze “New York”
7. Big Krit “I Got This”
8. Lupe “Around MY Way”
9. Mac Miller “L.O.U.D.”
10. Super Jay “Put It On The Set”
UPDATE: Now with phone call.
