The Wrath Of Roth

Asher Roth. He makes me cringe.

Asher Roth - I Love College

Okay. First thing. He sounds uncannily like Eminem. Really. But unlike Eminem, he hasn't actually got anything to say. Which kinds of puts him with many other rappers who hasn't got anything to say except about their 'ill' rhymes and black rims on a black hummer. He's the Eminem who grew up in suburbia, went to college, joined fraternities and had a trust fund in his name.

I don't mind immature. Blink 182 is (was) immature. But at least Blink 182 had things to say. And you know what makes me hate Asher Roth more?


From The Associated Press

Roth addresses poverty and greed on the song "Sour Patch Kids." And at his fans' behest, Roth uploaded to his MySpace page "A Millie Remix," a freestyle rhyme over Lil Wayne's "A Milli" beat, criticizing rappers who boast about having millions of dollars but "don't share, don't donate to charity."

"When I dropped that ... (I thought) 'You guys are always going off about how much money you have. Do you realize what's going on in this world right now?' All these black rappers ? African rappers ? talking about how much money they have. 'Do you realize what's going on in Africa right now?'" Roth says.

"It's just like, 'You guys are disgusting. Talking about billions and billions of dollars you have. And spending it frivolously, when you know, the Motherland is suffering beyond belief right now.'"


What a douche. Way to group all the black rappers as African, ignorant asshat. And this is coming from the guy who raps about how crazy his party was that they should've got it on videotape.

Did I mention this guy is a massive douchebag?

By the way...

Happy 21st birthday to Dibs, who is actually more mature than her age, so this does not signify her adulthood, to be honest. But still, you're now officially an adult in most parts of the world.

I couldn't be bothered to look into my hard drive for a photo of you. Facebook profile photos will do. Looking forward to more deeply philosophical (Read: puzzling and sometimes scary, often revelatory) conversations with you in the future.
