Asher Roth Loves College
Asher Roth may look like a 10th grader and sound suspiciously like Eminem at times, but I’ll be damned if he doesn’t spit some hot fire. (Just check his recent Greenhouse Effect mixtape with DJ Drama and DJ Cannon if you need proof.) On his latest track, “I Love College,” he goes where few MCs have gone before: to the beer pong table. Grads who want to take a quick trip down memory lane should definitely give it a listen—props to Mr. Roth for playing to the crowd and dumbing down the lyricism to the level of a drunken frat house freestyle (i.e., slow and corny, with terrible pronunciation of Allen Iverson’s name). I think it works.
