@milkman and boxcutter: what is fake about Asher? He raps about what he cares about, and doesn't cater to any gimmick! That's why he's been doing so many mixtapes rather than commercial albums. And guess what you hear on the mixtapes - actual original style. Yeah he doesn't have much to rap about besides his waster life and the occassional hang-up over what is considered the typical rapper - so what? He has skills and I enjoy listening to him express himself.
Yeah I agree Biggie should not be in this picture, if this dude was truly inspired by Biggie he would make some better and more truthful music with less gimmick; Biggie is being used here as a marketing tool to portray that asher roth is "true to the roots of hip-hop".
Death to this fake shit.
