    “Dear XXL fans, readers and commentors:

    We don’t care that none of you care about Asher Roth. Some very complicated deals have been made, hands have been shook and checks have been cut, so, whether you like it or not, we’re going to tell you all about OUR boy Asher Roth. He doesn’t have his own Twitter page because we offered to serve as his official spokesperson site, almost like a White House press secretary. We don’t hear you when you say you don’t care about him…WE care about him so you have to.

    Sincerely,

    XXL Management”

      Fuck it. I give in.

      Asher Roth is the tightest rapper ever. I will buy 3 copies of his album. I will sell my car to buy concert tickets & follow him to every tour date he does. I will even enroll in my local community college & start a bootleg fraternity. I will name my next two kids after him; Asher & Roth. I hope they will be twins.

      *barfs*

      LMAO @ Pierzy that shit funny as hell

      And you know what…I bet thats the real story behind XXL and Asher Roth too!

  • Jame

    Thanks for the clarification. It’s getting a little ridiculous.

  • Jame

    FYI – I’m right around King of Prussia in PA and about 35 minutes from The Note in WC. Asher’s hometown of Morrisville is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from WC. I may swing down there to see what the crowd is like. It’s right by West Chester U so it’ll prob be packed. College crowd does not equal hip-hop crowd.

    • Pierzy

      What up kid…

      I grew up in the PA ‘burbs and now live in downtown Philly and I know a ton of people from the area that aren’t feelin’ him at all.

      Since Asher attended WC for a bit, I’m sure it’ll be packed, but if I did a show at my alma mater, I could get a crowd too.

      • Monty B.

        Word. Philly here. If that kid walks around Broad Street with his weed handlers he’s getting murked on sight!

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

          See that, XXL! You see what you did right there? Y’all got Monty B. ready to lay something down! Somebody’s going to be videotaping his mom asleep @ her work desk next…….

    From Dallas Penn’s new blog:

    “Go copp that Deeper Than Rap, ASLEEP IN THE BREAD AISLE and Born Like This.

    Save an intern, save the world.”

    Ugh.

  • Ya Boy

    For real though if he wanna sell big he need 2 rock dat “Chopper suit”.

  • Jame

    @Pierzy -

    Yeah – people I’ve talked to are on the fence about him. I DJ at a couple bars in the area and it’s hilarious. Girls dancin and the floor is mobbed and everynight, a handful a college dudes ask for I Love College and want to chug beers at the end of the song. That’s his crowd. Again, that’s not hip-hop. Also, I don’t play the song and it pisses em off. Hilarity continues.

    has skills but this gimp embodies all that is bullshit about
    hip-hop, guy didn’t even listen to rap and he thinks he can cut it?
    Fuck outta here!
