The new US hip hop sensation, Asher Roth, will be playing a special one-off date at the Tabernacle in West London on May 7.

Roth, 23, will be performing tracks from his eagerly awaited debut album Asleep In The Bread Aisle which has already been receiving rave reviews and seen him earn the respect of hip hop giants such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, Ludacris and Andre 3000.

The youngster first came to attention last year when his mixtape The Greenhouse Effect became the most downloaded and buzzed about mixtape of the year.

Alongside Roth will be Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Semtex dropping the hottest hip hop joints.

Asher is hoping his debut single I Love College matches his US success when it releases in the UK, May 11.
