Asher Roth isn’t your typical rapper. He’s a white boy from the suburbs. Yet he’s making a name for himself in the hip hop game. The 22-year-old doesn’t mind being different, as he told us.
“You’re never gonna please everybody, but for the people we’re trying to speak to and trying to reach, people have been very, very receptive. They’re happy that they have something to relate to, especially in hip hop. And that’s why I started to do it, because there’s nobody speaking my language, ya know what I mean. So I was like if they’re not gonna do it, I’m gonna do it. So I did it and I’m seeing what’s going on, that people are like ‘hey I’m totally relating to this music’ and its been a blast.”
You can find Asher Roth’s single, “I Love College,” on his upcoming album, Asleep In The Bread Aisle. It will hit stores on April 21st.
