Ash Riser – “Smile, Wave & Laugh” (prod. Tae Beast)

blame it on Patrick Glynn October 27, 2016

Ash Riser‘s connection to Top Dawg Entertainment runs long and deep, dating back to 2009 on The Kendrick Lamar EP. Since, he’s provides vocals in the form of a feature or in the background on a handful of projects released by Top Dawg.

His latest tie-in to the label comes in the form of a solo release, “Smile, Wave & Laugh,” produced by TDE in-house producer Tae Beast. He also produced “Keisha’s Song (Her Pain),” which Ash featured on, from Kendrick’s Section.80 album.

Riser uses “Smile, Wave & Laugh” to detail his standing in the music industry — a common theme in his music displayed on “Finally” and the LATE PRAISE EP. Essentially, the Cali native steps around the fakes, enters politician mode and offers a kind smile, a wave and a laugh to the industry heads and moves on with his art.
