Asco Delivers ‘Better Late Than Never’ Mixtape

5 October 2018

Asco appeases fans with the release of his new mixtape Better Late Than Never.

The 13-track project from the Hackney-hailing MC features several solo tracks as well as link-ups with huge names including Loski and Young Adz.

Previously released singles “Cheque”, “So Lit” and “Goin On” appear on the tape as well as several new tracks.

In his usual style, Asco is honest and raw in his rhymes as he details life on road, his personal struggles and good as well as bad relationships in various songs across the project.

Asco spits over a variety of beats on Better Late Than Never which vary in pace and style; songs such as “Want Me” and “Betrayal” carry a slight US hip-hop influence within the instrumental, “Cheque” with drill star Loski verges on afroswing whilst “Pink Notes” sees Asco experiment with auto-tune and trap sounds. “Friendship” however instead embodies the unique sound and personality of UK rap.

On “Outro”, Asco details his wishes for his career, his perceived life purpose and his goals. The track is a great closer to the project and it ties up the mixtape perfectly.

Asco sat down with the NFTR crew at the beginning of the year to discuss his career journey, losing jewellery in Dubai and his desire to maintain consistency with his music. Asco gets in depth with Posty and Chams in the interview which you can check out here.
