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.

I was living in Atlanta for a year under the support of Scooter Braun, Steve Rifkind and a couple of best friends. Ditching ... Read more in Amazon's Asher Roth Store

Product Description

CD Description

Having released a host of mixtapes and debut single "I Love College", Asher Roth is hailed as Hip Hop's "Great White Hope". The Pennsylvania rapper has been compared to Eminem for obvious reasons, and also shares a sense a humour and political edge, but in fact his suburban, middle class lyrics are a far cry from those of Slim Shady. The UK edition of Asleep in the Bread Aisle features an exclusive bonus track "Y.O.U" ft. Slick Rick.

5.0 out of 5 stars loves college and is in a class of his own 27 April 2009
By Dizzy P
Format:Audio CD
This is the debut album from Mr Roth. A great piece of work.

It has been in my CD player since Monday non stop and I must say that its quite a well thought out album.

Tracks devoted to his father, talking about his identity, enjoying life, overcomming problems this CD has it all. With a comedic twist or a sharp shot of truth its all there. Immense story-telling ability such as the track "Bad Day", give it a try...

Some great samples in there as well - classic stuff - and it makes for a relaxing listen to some clever lyrics compared to the rest of the crap out there regularly. Makes a change to listen to someone who doesnt talk about guns, selling drugs, cars and whores.

I feel through this album that Ash Roth has shown his identity - something that 90% of rappers struggle with or they're the same as the next guy...

as the previous reviewer said...you wont be dissapointed. I agree.

5.0 out of 5 stars eminem wanna be?! 24 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
there is a lot of comparison between asher roth and eminem, and yeah the speculation is right! this guy has the ability and skill to write and create music just as well and em.

i've been a big fan of em since the begining and i'm glad this guy asher has come about with this album! the tracks are upbeat and fun, and ashers lyrical content on this album is superb!

for a guy from the suburbs in the U.S who's first experience of hip hop was "hard knock life" by Jay Z to turn out an album of this calibre this is extrodinary!

i cannot express how good this guys lyrical abilty is!

buy the album now! you won't be dissapointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars He can definitely 'Spit' 13 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
I got this album the other day and haven't listened to anything else since. I first heard `I love college' on Jo Whiley's show and like many others questioned whether this was Eminem's latest offering. But as the track progressed it came obvious this was not Eminem's work. Yes they have a very similar voice and both producing in the same genre, but for me these artists aren't as similar as first impressions would seem. I guess this issue has been heavily addressed through his early career, which has led to one of my favorite tracks `As I Em'. Instead of hiding the links between him and Eminem he decides to address the issue in superior style through this track! This is one of many outstanding tracks through this album, I can hear definite influence from Jay Z and can hear aspects of Lupe Fiasco in his work. Asher can certainly write some amazing lyrics and he can definitely `spit'.

The album has some great tracks throughout, very strong opening and it has a nice progression through the record. I was slightly disappointed with the ending. After giving it a few listens I just can't get into Y.O.U the last track. It was such a let down compared to the rest of the album, I didn't enjoy the sample and his lyrics sound a little flat. Luckily the rest of the album is amazing and doesn't pull it down too much!

The production is brilliant, some awesome beats; the vocals sound spot on, with some great over dubs and vocal doubles, featuring some exciting artists and great vocalists. I love the instrumentation on this album; a lot of the tracks have a very acoustic feel to them, he uses guitar a lot in the album, you can also hear piano on a few of the tracks and the bass feels very natural.

If you like hip-hop I'd recommend checking out this album, I also think this would be a great album for some who is just getting into hip-hop. Check it out!
