When you’re caught up in the daily grind, it’s easy to forget there’s a whole world out there to explore. Even here in Minneapolis, the sun’s shining, the birds are singing, and it’s the perfect temperature to chill in the grass with a good book… f*ck it, I’m going Outside. Uh, once I’m done with today’s features. In any case, Asher Roth certainly isn’t helping me concentrate on my work with his latest feature, a breezy summer jam touting the rejuvenating powers of fresh air and greenery. Over a currently unknown producer’s inspired sampling of indie buzz band Cults’ Go Outside, the Pittsburgh rhymesayer powerfully evokes the feeling of being “locked in the studio while outside is beautiful,” encourages his listeners to tear themselves away from Facebook (not DJBooth, of course) and make some memories. On the back, Roth puts on his nutritionist hat to spit the praises of a vegetarian diet: ”If you’re bummin’, it’s probably ‘cause your food’s not from the earth, cousin.” Released via the artist’s Tumblr on Sunday, this blissfully mellow jam may or may not appear on the artist’s sophomore album and Def Jam debut, Is This Too Orange? Either way, keep it locked for further news and tunes leading up to the project’s release later this year.
