Gather 'round the monitor, everyone, and join us in welcoming rapper Asher Roth to this week's blog. Our video is Roth's oft-hilarious "I Love College," the big hit off his 2009 album, Asleep In The Bread Aisle.
Asher's story isn't the hip-hop norm. He began rhyming in high school and eventually sold tapes of his tracks around Morrisville, PA, where he grew up. Going on to attend West Chester University, he started posting his raps on MySpace. It all led to a manager, a record contract, and incipient stardom.
"Roth's lyrics center around what has been called 'middle-class minutiae,'" says the Internet. That, as well as the smoke and the drink...which could also be classified as middle-class minutiae, we guess. In any case, it's all good fun, and pretty damn catchy. So please enjoy, and tell us what you think!
