Asa2Times returns with long anticipated 2Times EP all with no features.
Known for his high energy and vivacious punchlines, Chicago emcee Asa2Times brings nothing but hype to his newest project, 2Times. Clocking in at only six tracks, Asa gets right to it with hits such as "Nothin I Won't Do, "Disco Ball", and "Deserve All This" featuring production from VIIbez and 25th Hour.
Asa is almost unintentionally catchy at times, drawing the listener in immediately on certain tracks. On the hazy banger "Deserve All This", he opens the track with "Spilled codeine all on my carpet, Louie V that's on my locket...pop 2 pills I feel like Tarzan." The frequent Mikey Dollaz collaborator shows his versatility later on weaving back in the beat with the melodic hook, "Woke up with a bad b*tch, didn't think I deserved all this." It may seem simple on paper, but he seems to attract the listener with well-timed cadence bending the chorus when needed.
Asa just performed in late October supporting Valee' and Plug Migo at the Refuge and dropped his video for "Cigarette" earlier this week. Peep the new EP below.
