A popular nickname for 22-year old rapper Asher Roth is “The Great White Hope,” and for good reason. Rhyming from a young, working-class perspective, the Morrisville, Pennsylvania native brings some much-needed creativity into the hip-hop scene. Set to release his currently-untitled debut album on March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) under SRC Recordings, Asher’s currently riding the wave of I Love College, an ode to the best four years of his life that has even the most rough-and-tumble MCs putting their drinks in the air and chugging. Jim Jones shows up for the remix, admitting that, though he spent only one semester in college, he loved the experience as much as the hardest-partying frat boy. To put it in Asher’s words, “Do I really have to graduate, or can I just stay here for the rest of my life?”
