Asher Roth Plays Fox Theatre Tonight, 11/13
Z2 Entertainment presents Asher Roth with Kids These Days and David Dallas at the Fox Theatre tonight, November 13th. Tickets are $15.00 GA and $40.00 GA plus Meet & Greet.
Before "Asleep in the Bread Aisle" dropped on 4/20, there wasn't much to base an opinion on besides a catchy party song and the first white boy rendition of a Gangsta Grillz tape, "The Greenhouse Effect" hosted by DJ Don Cannon himself.
Asher Roth was living in Atlanta for a year under the support of Scooter Braun, Steve Rifkind and a couple of best friends. Ditching school prematurely and "seeing what
happens" in ATL was a fool proof plan. He had been rapping in his basement on Matlack St as a elementary education major at West Chester University. He felt fairly confident in the change of scenery. With the help of kiniesology major, Tom "Boyder" Boyd, and social skills major with a minor in "chill-daggie," Brian "Brain" Bangley, and Sweet Potato Kang DJ Wreckineyez they set out to change the world.
Once there he would stay up late, hang with hot moms and make a few rap songs. Amongst a few parties and bike rides to Kroger, he penned a few tunes that led to a platinum-single in "I Love College," collaborations w Cee-Lo Green, Busta Rhymes and a whole collection of fond memories.
One thing led to the next and he found himself on a country- wide tour with fellow sensations Kid Cudi and B.o.B conveniently named "The Great Hangover." Boston, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, London, Ireland and Amsterdam! He had had his first taste of "the life" and did not want to go back.
The foundation of his music will be the same feel good tunes that got him here and the rest will comprise of the stories, friends and family he makes along the way.
