ASM - Origin & Juice

Episode 1

Out now !

Shank Em: A pure boom bap hip-hop joint anchored in masterful lyricism, heavy driving bass, smooth horns and a catchy & dreamy guitar. ASM set the tone of this new series with tongue-in cheek battle format wordplay that shows they mean business.


ASM (A State of Mind), the international hip hop collective composed Green T, FP, and Rhino is launching a new project in collaboration with CMR (Chinese Man Records) called « Origin & Juice” to combine their love for music, food, and natural wine. The project comes in the form of a 6-part video and single series, in which each episode explores a different country to celebrate its natural winemakers, culinary traditions, and musical history reinterpreted in ASM’s unique ultra-lyrical boom bap style.

For this first episode, ASM brings you to ITALY with the track « Shank Em », based on a sample from one of the masters of Italian Library music, Piero Umiliani. ASM flips his classic cinematic soul piece “Lady Magnolia” into a heavy hyper-lyrical boom-bap joint. The track is paired with a zero-zero pet nat by Costadila, curated for the natty wine purists, and a sticky braised lamb shank with buttery polenta & zesty gremolata cooked by Green T himself.
