asher roth

Seriously, big thanks to Charlie Bravo for putting me onto Asher Roth, a dorky white frat boy who can rap his ass off. This guy is the one to watch. Amazing. Check out the “A Millie” remix–you can download it for free.

  4. axrinekey on October 10, 2008 at 8:44 am

    Lol.
    Seriously, he doesn’t have the look of a rapper… xD
    Looks a little nerdy…
    But, he’s good.
    Totally.
    He has a sound that’s like a black guy’s. xD

    Not bad, but Fort Minor it is the all the same best:)

  6. shirayuki_ice111 on October 9, 2008 at 12:10 am

    Seeing this video reminds me:when is fort minor going to have a new album coming out? I miss listening to it! And listening to ‘where’d you go’ really brings back memories because I grew up with my dad working overseas too. And now it’s my mom’s turn. It’s kinda hard to see us together in one place for very long lol. ;D good luck in whatever you’re doing!

    IMHO it’s a pity to say,but it seems to me that all rappers are like the one.their main ideas:parties,girls,cars,everything’s cool,life’s great and so forth. maybe i missed the idea,but i thought that rap music started it’s existence to show this world the truth of the life!to tell that it’s not so perfect,some people r not as light-hearted as the others,to show the reality!maybe i’m wrong or maybe i don’t understand something,but i’m really disappointed because of todays rappers,and the message they bring to the world…there’s no truth for me…and if i want to listen to a real thing i turn on Fort Minor, really beaudiful music and lyrics. i see myself in these songs. thank you, Mike!

  10. antje on October 7, 2008 at 10:42 am

    nice….really nice….

  11. Madlen on October 7, 2008 at 10:27 am

    Hey Mike!I found some pics that may not be exactly lost in translation but i thought i might show them to you:D

    Btw that guy is cool:D

  12. Kalini on October 7, 2008 at 9:31 am

    Yeah, this guy is good! Thanx for the video! Mike, I’ve just posted my suggestions for a name of the DVD, but I forgot to ask you if you could show us the cover of the DVD, then we could think of better names! Just a thought! Krassie K.

  13. 2T_LP on October 7, 2008 at 8:04 am

    :D:D:D:D nice vid. !!
    ohh…about that DVD thing….can u mike tell us about when will it be ready ???

  14. ffmuteki9 on October 7, 2008 at 7:40 am

    Hey Mike, I wanna make sure one thing!!!!

    Do you really cancel the tour in China? China’s website has posted a news that due to Chester’s hurt on back, you are forced to cancel the MFR tour in China. IS THAT REAL?

    if it’s true, then what about the show in Taiwan?

  15. Shinizzle3 on October 7, 2008 at 6:53 am

    Mike.. seriously.. i think you have too much time…=PP
    i can’t even read all of your blogs, you post so many of them
    =) but i love that you communicate with us^^ so i get this feeling.. that you really.. exist ^^ [i’m stupid i know^^]

  16. ms_shock on October 7, 2008 at 6:05 am

    Ok Mike i posted a comment for previous blogpost but i cant edit it and cant write 2 comments so i will post it here (it’s the 1st comment here! lol). ok. i was doing a school-project and i used your art… (“smoking” one). The title of the project is “No drugs” so plz check this msshock.linkinpark.com (you also can find my art there!)
    Yes, it’s not so good as yours (yeah, the leg is too short but the hand is too long o__0 ) but anyway, i LOVE my work, hope you will like it too… i’ll be VERY happy if you notice it !! xD

  17. faiintx on October 7, 2008 at 5:53 am

    that was cool!

    And nice job on typing with proper grammar and stuff =D

    You’re my idol, Mike =]

  18. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on October 7, 2008 at 4:53 am

    haha thats cool!!!! i really like that song!! byeeee :):)

  19. psykobouliz on October 7, 2008 at 3:11 am

    yeah this guy is great!!! I like the song!!! …Next Eminem? ;]

  20. maria on October 7, 2008 at 2:50 am

    I gonna place my words ventured with the topic ahead. This guy reminds 50 Cent and Eminem in some way. or maybe someone can even compare him with Public Enemy. Anyway it’s great and cheerful.

  21. evomunk on October 7, 2008 at 2:04 am

    sry for posting twice in a row but since you’re into art. please check out this video by “Asian Kung-Fu Generation”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr0X0O8xSzQ&fmt=18 (the audio is a bit off) . the song is called “Atarashii Sekai” or “New World” (English). this artist drawings are great in the video, and in motion.

  22. evomunk on October 7, 2008 at 1:33 am

    hey mike, can you please check out a Japan band called “Asian Kung-Fu Generation”. their sound is a breath of fresh air. though i don’t understand what they are saying, but i read the translated lyrics at a fan site over at akfgfan.com . anyways songs to check out are “Korogaru Iwa Kimi ni Asa ga Furu”, “After Dark”, “Kimi to iu hana”, and “Blue Train” (the drumming is amazing). their latest single “Fujisawa Loser” has just released a video for the song. it shows a guy that has just receive a letter (about a job opportunity i think). the video shows two “life choice” courses, a “Salaryman Course” and a “Band Course”, and there are four stages to complete to reach that one goal.

  23. Astat on October 7, 2008 at 1:01 am

    Hey Mike, this is a pretty trivial/unrelated question, but I figured since you’ve been answering them a lot more lately, I might as well give it a shot:

    Was anybody else involved in the recording of the song It’s Goin’ Down other than you, Joe, and the X-Ecutioners? I’m mainly wondering who played guitar on that track – I know Phoenix, Rob, and Wayne Static were all in the music video, but none of them are credited on the album, and it really doesn’t sound like Brad to me either. Did you play guitar on that song?

  24. Jon on October 7, 2008 at 12:22 am

    Had this dude’s mixtape 4a minute. Copped it after the line “We can turn the lights off and play ‘who’s in your mouth’. Witty video, good blue-screen cameos &some nice punchlines made it worth checking out plus when the thing’s free there’s not really any where to complain y’know.

    On your quest 4musicians doing it indie, check out Ingrid http://www.myspace.com/ingridmichaelson. She’s close to being the first solo indie artist 2sell 1mill singles off her own back &she’s shifting units well. Great sound, still giving the hugs & love at the shows & the musicians she’s friends with (www.myspace.com/jennyowenyoungs, http://www.myspace.com/theageofrocketsetc.) are all great full on musicians too.

  25. Jaclyn on October 6, 2008 at 11:56 pm

  33. Lee on October 6, 2008 at 6:53 pm

  34. Doggie24690 on October 6, 2008 at 6:37 pm

    Can’t wait to give ’em a listen, when I get home from school.

  35. lynndarwinharris on October 6, 2008 at 6:28 pm

    Not bad. I did not expect to like it. But he is pretty good.

  36. shan1105 on October 6, 2008 at 6:26 pm

    The white boy can rap he probably is going to be excited that you put him on your blog and that chamillionaire mentions him in his a milli remix. Check out this a milli remix http://www.myspace.com/shiftyplay7879 Hey when are you going to choose a wemix winner, i am sure there are hundreds of songs to listen to!!

  37. ShadowerLiltani on October 6, 2008 at 6:20 pm

    The name Asher Roth reminds me too much of Astaroth from Soul Calibur. I am so addicted to that game it’s not even funny anymore. I want to figure out how to make Talim dance by the end of this year. No Mike, I do not have anything better to do with my time.

  38. analoggirl on October 6, 2008 at 6:06 pm

    Okay, I fully expected to hate on that video, but I really enjoyed it! Loved the scene where he was surrounded by “bread”. lol Nice find, Shinoda. I like this kid’s irreverent sense of humour.

  39. Jaraldoaz on October 6, 2008 at 5:49 pm

    This guys pretty good.
    If I was looking to make some beats myself could anyone reccomend a good program (PC) to get started on? – send me a message – thanks
    and thanks Mike for the mixtapes

    If you guys haven’t checked out DJ Cheapshot’s Jazzercidal Tendancies you deff should.

  40. rubyred82 on October 6, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    Danielle7777, are you serious? Cause holy overreaction Batman. Please relax and take things less seriously, k? Thanks.
    P.S. Dey Know Asher is another good one lol.

  41. Danielle7777 on October 6, 2008 at 4:40 pm

    i know lol i over react sorry for any confusion😄

  42. bec on October 6, 2008 at 4:35 pm

    He has ginger hair! sorry, never seen a rapper with ginger hair before.

    Anyways – in reply to:

    M: BEC, I’m an A-MURR-i-can. We don’t spell it that way…and that means I also don’t say “al-u-min-ium,” “gare-age,” or “tele.” So pass me that Coors light and my cowboy hat, because I’m watchin’ NASCAR while cleanin’ this here deer carcass. Yee-haw.

    What the bloody-crumpet is a ‘tele’?

    A Canerican just explained that you mean ‘telly’ – british slang for television – did you read that in Harry Potter?

    And Danielle7777 – there is absolutly no anger, only playful humour

    Wait: ‘stop fighting god!’ I’m fighting God!?!?! Mike’s God!

  43. Morgan on October 6, 2008 at 4:34 pm

    I love this video… I had to watch it again. Here’s a crazy, insane thought: Why don’t you team up with this guy and do a whole
    “Green House Effect” concert or something for Music For Relief. It goes well, right? I’d pay good money to see you guys on stage. Oh yes.

  44. Hybr1d_7h3ory on October 6, 2008 at 4:31 pm

    For some reason I see him doing a Freecreditreport.com commercial in the near future…lol
    That was really good though…good post

  45. Anstice on October 6, 2008 at 4:20 pm

    That is so badass. I love his shirt! ♥
