  • Rob The Music Ed

    Asher’s album actually seems to be shaping up quiet nicely- I heard a few joints. I was impressed thus far.

  • http://myspace.com/councilmusic hashbrown

    actually…asher roth sounds wack, like an early wanna be eminem.. charles hamilton is a’ight i guess. i dont like freestyles unless their written…make any sense? n/m

  • pop

    charles hamilton looks like easy e

  • Chris Mac

    Asher roth has to be the worst mc i’ve seen in awhile. This dude is whack.Whack lyrics, whack style, what voice. Dude needs to listen to the Shady Lp a few more times and get it right. Its hard for white rappers to come up cuz they all try to bite em’s style. This guy gives white mc’s a REAL bad name and makes us look whack. Where the fuck is the deserving mc’s? I aint even hatin that he’s got the oppurtunity, Im hatin cuz i solely believe this guy cant rap at all! Would all the fake slim shadys please shut up!

  • Deez Da Beast

    Micky Factz flowed the best…hamiltons second verse was better than his 1st…asher is wack

  • Nate

    @ Chris Mac:

    Sounds like a lot of hate coming from your end…You’ve heard ash speak before haven’t you? Everybody in the world has to know someone white with the same voice as em and ash…they are so similar…let’s be real, if the tables were turned and Ash dropped before em…would we be saying that Em was biting Asher’s style? Hell naw…cuz if you can spit you can spit…and ash can…he can’t help that his voice is similar to Em’s…He has a different flow than Em and only has a couple of joints on his mixtape where he sounds like him…

  • bigdwb1024

    it’s funny how nobody likes asher, but he’s the one we all talkin bout?!? kid’s hot. that’s it.

  • Jstylez

    damn xxl must not have nothing else to do huh///man im pretty sure they could of got anybody else that can at least freestyle…geez

  • J

    @ NATE: Co-Sign

  • JBE

    I like Asher Roth as an artist because he is real but he still isn’t as good as this white rapper who’s myspace link is shown here: http://www.myspace.com/vindictive203 Listen to his music and try and say he ain’t hot. To all Asher haters he has a diss towards Asher Roth that you can enjoy.

  • Hold Tight The UK Garage And Grime… UK I Rep Thats Me When I Rhyme!

    Charles is that guy man.

  • th!z

    @yoprince: Jada put it perfectly.

    niggas are trash they sound like dudes that gather at the lunchtable in 9th grade and rap to beats on they cellphones

  • BIG BOO

    I know how it is, you speak the truth and get labeled as a hater. But this dude Asher Roth just came so wack with it that I felt embarassed for him. I know it was freestyle off the top of the head which is something these wack mc’s now a days don’t even attempt to do. Still thats no excuse for coming that wack with it in my opinion. Plus he looks like a fag so that doesn’t help.

  • brich

    Wale wasnt in the video because he cant freestyle. He only spits written shit. Out of everybody there the only people willin to go off the dome was these guys. Mikey is that dude. NYC is back
