Asher Roth – I Love College (video)

(^^ah…college)

As I sit here in disbelief watching this standoff between the LAPD and some dude who looks an awful like DJ Khaled driving a Bentley, I’m pretty shocked.  Granted, Khaled is the punchline of every hip-hop head’s jokes, but this obviously isn’t something you’d wish on anyone.  Wow.

In a completely unrelated matter, here’s the new video for Asher’s uber-smash-in-the-making, “I Love College.”  I heard this on the rock station here in Seattle when I was getting a haircut earlier tonight and the buzz is really starting to take off.  I give it one more month before it’s a certified hit and Asher’s a star.  And for the record, I like this song…plus dude is dope.  He’s working with a lot of talented people on his album too, so I think it should eliminate a lot of the Em-parisons.

Now…Khaled…get out of the car and end this peacefully….please.

    I feel like when i watch this that this is hiphop’s natural evolution. I just hope Asher doesnt end up being the linch pin between HipHop being divorced from history.

    yeah…I think the cultural ramifications of a massively popular, “breakthrough” style white rapper really already happened with Eminem. As you mentioned, this is a natural progression of the genre…and I don’t think there’s any danger of Asher being some sort of turning point with it.
