Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

PUTTING ASIDE THE INTRICATE CADENCE FOR A MOMENT, 23-year old emcee Asher Roth succinctly sums up his raison d'etre with the above lines. While so many rappers are delivering tired rhymes to back up their fake back stories, Asher Roth has quickly emerged as the future: a hip-hop anomaly grounded enough to take pride in his suburban roots but confident and talented enough to have already earned the respect of rap royalty such as 50 Cent, Ludacris, Akon, and Andre 3000. In the summer of 2008, then unknown Asher Roth's debut mixtape, The Greeenhouse Effect Vol. 1, hit the internet. Hosted by legendary Atlanta DJs, DJ Drama and Don Cannon, the mixtape caught the attention and respect of finicky hip hop fans across the web. Over the next few months, hip hop and indie music press outlets featured Roth in select publications. The buzz lifted him onto the cover of XXL in November 2008. Since then, every major media outlet from Rolling Stone to MTV to Playboy has named Asher Roth the artist to watch in 2009. Roth backs up the buzz with his energetic and witty debut album, Asleep In The Bread Aisle. The album's sound fuses influences from hip hop, rock and rhythm & blues to create a masterpiece for the ages. The first single, "I Love College", debuted with full rotation across the MTV networks, and over 100 radio station adds on Alternative, Rhythmic/Xover and Top 40 radio. With a humble and hard working demeanor, a vigorous live show and MC skills to match, the sky is the limit with Asher Roth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eminem? No...but he's still worth the listen April 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As with a lot of new artists now days it is difficult to pinpoint what sort of material to expect from them when all we hear is what the record label wants us to hear to obtain that first impression. Well, if you were one who was in the mixtape market you would know that Asher Roth dropped a mixtape last year with DJ Drama and DJ Cannon entitled "The Green House Effect." It is this mixtape where Asher attempted to get the respect to the true hip-hop heads. It showed that the dude can actually rhyme with skill and cleverness. "The Lounge" and "Start the Show" are two tracks from that mixtape that show a clearer picture of who he is as an artist than the single that came out for "Asleep in the Bread Aisle," which was "I Love College."

However, after you get through "I Love College" there are some very well put together songs that make up his official debut album. "Fallin'" is my favorite track on the album and shows Asher rhyme over a Nottz beat. Within this track he reminisces on how he found to love the art of hip-hop. I can relate a lot to this track. "His Dream" is another song which Asher sheds his reputation from "I Love College." In this track, he expresses how he was influenced by his dad, but took a different path because he was influenced by hip-hop more. Another great track.

From there though, the album goes back to play with some disposable songs which I think are more label influenced than Asher's own intentions. "Lark in My Go-Kart," "Bad Day," "Blunt Cruisin'," are all tracks specifically for the feel good audience. It will remind listeners of Eminem's own "comical" tracks which made up of most of Eminem's last album, "The Eminem Show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start For Asher Roth October 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
While this CD isn't anything mind blowing it is a really Solid start and a breath of fresh air in terms of the garbage that's on the radio right now. It has a real old school hip hop feel in other words what hip hop should really be like today. He has a similar voice to Eminem but dnt let that fool you his songs and lyrics are simple but yet true to hip hop form. Grab this and you wont be disappointed but dont. expect anything mind blowing either its a really solid CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction May 21, 2009
Format:Audio CD
As I'd expected, 'I Love College' was just a marketing trip to turn people on to the real bread and butter. 'Lark On My Go Kart' is nostalgic and fun as hell, 'Be By Myself' and 'Bad Day' are cool and unique, and 'His Dream' is as emotional a song as you'll find on a hip-hop album this year. And how perfect is the Ben Kweller sample at the end? A production masterpiece, as these are great songs overall. A very satisfactory record; if not for the innocuous 'Blunt Cruisin', I would've given this album 5 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars His MySpace stuff was better May 23, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
His old MySpace page had some really great original tracks and precursors to stuff on this album back before it came out... and they were way better. In that stuff he created a persona of being a somewhat good-guy rapper; maybe not what you expect, but it was much better than the forced Eminem-lite stuff on this album. He can still flow some, but its not as authentic.

3.0 out of 5 stars This might be a little too easy, but... November 15, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I finally got Time Warner Cable again a week or so ago and I caught the video for Asher Roth and Keri Hilson's "She Don't Wanna Man", and I was like, "THIS is what I've been missing?" ("Supa fresh/I would do me in a sec"? Please.) Still, I listened to Ash's album Asleep in the Bread Aisle.

The trouble Asher Roth has is -- and I tried very hard not to mention this -- he sounds a little TOO much like Eminem. But the problem THERE is that it sounds more like the comical style Em displayed early in his career, which isn't quite as accessible now as it was back then (how many songs from The Slim Shady LP do you think Em performs nowadays?). For the most part, Ash's rhymes are comedic, but they just aren't funny enough. This especially shows on the opening track "Lark on My Go-Kart"; and although "I Love College" became a runaway hit, ask any college student if they'd be caught dead playing that song (well, sober, anyway).

I didn't hear any of Ash's mixtape stuff, but people say he was more of a serious rapper then, and that would probably be better because the few times he's serious on HERE is when the decent songs come out, like the last two tracks ("His Dream" and "Fallin'"). The obligatory Jazze Phizzle productizzle "Bad Day" is passable, but "As I Em" (whose chorus is lifted from an old Joe Jackson song called "Geraldine and John"), the song where he tries to distance himself from Eminem, only comes off as okay. And Busta Rhymes' verse saves the metaphorically sexual "Lion's Roar", although I'm not exactly sure which part of his anatomy he's talking about (listen to the song to see what I mean).

When I first heard this garbage I thought it was another one of those joke Andy Samberg SNL songs. His raps are absolutely about nothing. If he can rhyme he can stick to poetry. Read more
