Towards the start of 2020, Asher Roth received an incredibly scathing 2.9 rating in the Fork review for his third studio album, Flowers on weekends, but as a true artist would, he kept moving forward. Asher Roth then performed a sort of pandemic experiment in which he would share acapellas on his Discord and encourage fans to create their own instrumentals based on his lyrics. After 20 weeks, Asher Roth had realized he had something special on his hands, and almost a decade after the previous episode of his fan favorite. Greenhouse effect mixtape series, he decided to turn those fan collaborations into Greenhouse effect Vol. 3.
Greenhouse effect Vol. 3 slated for release on September 3 and to hold fans until the full mixtape is released, former XXL Freshman shared GEV3-piece, a pack of three fan-produced singles. “Snazzy Kat,” one of the singles from Asher Roth’s new threesome, also arrives with a brief black and white music video.
Ahead of Greenhouse effect Vol. 3, Asher Roth has revealed that his next mixtape will actually be a concept project. Discussing the story behind it, he says, “The tape is kind of a rap opera, about a professor at the University of the College who teaches horticulture. A few students, looking at his long hair and birkenstocks, assume he can teach them how to grow pot. That’s what he does. Eventually the greenhouse is broken into by a few kids who steal the crop to sell it but eventually get caught by a police officer – who is a former student in the teacher’s class who was never able to learn how The Pot (retrohash) cultivated is actually magical and creates a portal to the world of abundance, but only when smoked by a good soul. If it is smoked by a rotten apple, the world as we know it would erode.
