HipHopDX Exclusive Premiere: Singer, songwriter, and producer, Ash Riser has unveiled his R.I.S.E. EP, making it available for free download. This is the third EP Ash has released this year, following Home and most recently Late Praise. The 4-track release includes booming productions from 808 Mafia, Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital, TM88, and Zaytoven. Ash’s longtime friends and frequent collaborators, WAXX and Walt Grizzly also shine as they lay down some crazy features. Key player and visionary of OG Maco’s OGG collective and recent Grammy Award winner (Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly), Ash is quickly making his mark on the world of Hip Hop.
Ash’s commentary on the project:
“The only features are WAXX and Walt Grizzly who are the day one homies I’ve been rocking with for years now. We lived together in trap houses all over Los Angeles, really struggling. Where we are now as people and musicians is insane.
I wanted to attack the beats by these producers differently than anyone ever has, not just cadences but storytelling. I go into a side of my life I never talk about in my music – hustling, glorifying a lifestyle I’m constantly trying to escape.”
