Is Asher Roth Fo’ Real Or Just A Clever Creation?

Look at this dude. Is he real? No he’s not. I have found out recently that Asher is actually a clone made from the DNA of Eminem and Steve Coogan. Mr. Roth comes across looking like a young Alan Partridge with the witty skills (and voice) of a young Slim Shady.

Check out the video for crossover hit “I Love College” and then tell me my conclusion is incorrect.

All jokes aside, although “I Love College” sucks about as much as any other song on the iTunes top 20, The Greenhouse Effect mixtape is the second most creative mixtape of 2008 (#1 being Wildahead Portibeast). Dj Drama & Don Cannon lay-down a hot canvass for this white boy to splatter his brain-paint all over.

    Rhyming “Allen Iverson” and “Hakeem Olajuwon” in relation to beer pong is admittedly clever, but he strikes me as a less adventurous/intelligent MC Paul Barman.*

    I couldn’t make it through four and a half minutes of a white dude rapping about Frat Life (which, if he had tattooed across his abdomen, Tupac-style, would give him a few more bonus points).

    Obviously it’s a conceit for his rap schtick in terms of commercial success–I’ll rap about “what I know” like Ice T or Eazy–but the fact that it’s a conceit doesn’t make it any better or smarter or entertaining.

    All of which boils down to: how is this video any different than “Summer Girls” by Lyte Funkie Ones?

    * This would get more points if Olajuwon had been a better shooter instead of being a big man.

    Haven’t watched the video yet, i’ll go do that right now, but first i just wanted to give Guido some mad props for the phrase “lay-down a hot canvass for this white boy to splatter his brain-paint all over.”

    That sentence made me cry a single tear of happiness. Thanks Father!!

    A Frat Life tattoo would be awesome.

    Elmer – what did you think of the tracks from the mixtape? Those are hot cakes. That’s why I was so disappointed when I saw this video.

    How did I miss this post? HOW?!

    While not as dutty as Dirt Nasty and not as… mic-y (?) as Mickey Avalon, after listening to The Greenhouse Effect I concluded that Mr. Roth is taking the whiteboy-who-can’t-be-serious (can he?) schtick to a new level. I’m anxious to hear something that doesn’t have “THE CANNON!” plastered over all the tracks.

    He sounds like a folk singer gone “wigga.”
