Kanye West’s “Make Her Say” Verse Was Originally Supposed to Be on Asher Roth’s “I Love College” Remix
In a career full of serendipitous moments and events, it was a remix that never happened that Asher Roth still thinks about from time to time. The Morrisville, PA native joined the ItsTheReal boys for their "A Waste of Time" podcast and revealed that his hit "I Love College" was nearly remixed with a verse from Kanye West.
"Kanye's verse on 'Make Her Say' was for the 'I Love College' remix," said Roth. "But Cudi got a real strong advance so we had to make sense of that...When that was happening, they needed to take care of their boy so Kanye jumped on that. All fine and dandy but that would have probably been pretty life changing."
Roth doesn't seem too bent out of shape over the fact that Cudi got the 'Ye look instead of him and is adamant that he and the Ohio rapper are still cool. Elsewhere in the talk, Asher talks about meeting Scooter Braun, collabing with Justin Bieber, rapping for Jay Z, signing with Steve Rifkind, the 2009 XXL Freshmen cover shoot and much more.
ItsTheReal have knocked out interviews with Curren$y, Migos, A-Trak, The Alchemist, Mac Miller, Gunplay, Joe Budden, Bodega Bamz, A$AP Ferg, Bun B and more for "A Waste of Time." Check them all out via their SoundCloud page.
