F*** Off

When Asher Roth first appeared on the scene, I enjoyed "I love college," But I was skeptical. I wondered if it was just another industry gimmick or if it was the emergence of a real MC. I'll be honest, my initial investigation consisted of watching one freestyle on youtube. But just recently I heard a new song by Asher and B.O.B titled, Fuck The Money. In it, both Asher and B.O.B are articulating pure realness and their true plans for the industry. Then I came across the video for Asher's song, Muddy Swim Trunks; I thought it was independent,creative genius, all done in one take. I also took notice to Asher's captivating flow and steady, controlled use of diction; it's great.

Rap and Hip-hop have gone to shit. It has become less about content and talent; it has transformed into a race of who can produce the most bullshit until they become famous. Once that occurs, you begin the repetitive emphatic of one's "soul being sold". It's some really sick shit and forced me to turn my back on all that is commercial Hip-hop. So I just want to say, Fuck you Jay-Z, Lil' Wayne, Drake, Ludacris, Gucci Mane, 50 Cent, Kanye West, OH and Fuuuuuckkk Youuuuu Soulja Boy. That 'Fuck You' also stretches to whoever else falls in their category and considering the fact that I don't listen to the radio or watch television, my list is limited (I don't trust the fuckers who appear on those mediums).

Thank you to those who have yet to sell out and are attempting to save Hip-Hop music, AquaForce, Asher Roth, Blue Scholars, Binary Star, Nas( I don't think he'll ever sell out), Kid Cudi, The Cool Kids, Consequence and many others.
