Back with a new freestyle titled “Summers Over,” Rockland County native Ashoka reflects on the last year. Summer 16 was a big one for Ashoka. With the release of his debut EP Hard To Gain, Easy To Lose through HotNewHipHop, (here) , the premiere of his video for “Work” through ELEVATOR (below), and the follow up single to the EP “Don’t Go Here” (here) Ashoka has demonstrated consistent growth on every platform. Ashoka is gearing up to release a wide selection of new content in the coming months, leading up to the release of his second EP. “Summers Over” is a perfect demonstration of Ashoka’s penchant for inventive wordplay, smooth delivery, and unique artistry.
Ashoka is a Hip Hop artist from Rockland County, New York. During Ashoka’s senior year of college at Philadelphia’s Temple University, he began honing in on his talent for creating contextual narratives of experiences he and his close friends had lived. Inspired by the opportunity to finally share his story, Ashoka released his first single ‘Matter’ on June 17, 2015.
Coupled with a smooth delivery and clever lyrics, his standout singles “Matter” and “I Need”(released July 29th 2015) serve as a great first impression that leaves the listener wanting to explore the world that Ashoka has carefully narrated long after the song ends.
