Following a two year hiatus, Ashley Morgan returns with Battles, his first single since shedding his alter-ego.
Two years ago, it seemed Ashley Morgan had everything at his feet. Opening for the likes of Gaslamp Killer amongst others, and playing shows and festivals as far afield as South Africa, it was everything he ever dreamed of, until it wasn’t.
Quickly realising he was making music just to play at his next live show, only created to live up to all the expectations, and not for himself anymore, he decided to take a step back, to start making music that lived up to his own expectations, and not those upon him by the wider industry.
‘Battles’ is the first result of this to be released, two minutes of fucked up and fractured rap in the vein of Tyler the Creator or Hopsin, it’s weird, but it’s wonderful.
