Philadelphia-born rapper Asher Roth is set to perform in Manchester as part of the European leg of his Red Hot Revival album tour. Best known for his ode to fraternity life, ‘I Love College’, which gained two MTV Video Awards nominations and has clocked up a mammoth 27 million views on YouTube, Roth subsequently split from his major label deal at Universal. This year’s third LP is his second via the indie imprint Federal Prism, following 2014’s RetroHash, with an initial video for ‘Laundry’ a sneak preview before its release.
