If there's one artist that has been praised as quick as he's been dismissed, it's Asher Roth. And that's unfortunate; The Pennsylvanian emcee has been dropping slick tracks long after hip hop heads scoffed at "I Love College" for its frat rap nature. But the Weezer sampled smash hit was a different time for Roth. Now a little older and a little wiser, he's been able to explore his craft without the need to appeal to salty fans. Such is the story with "The World is Not Enough," the latest video from the Pabst & Jazz emcee.
While a hazy, horn heavy beat plays the backdrop to footage of the catastrophes going on in the world today, Roth keeps a calm composure as he drops rhymes discussing the hostility that arrises when people want to say whats real. With lines like "Our people been evicted, from homes they grew up in but nobody cares to listen," it's hard to argue against the ugly truth that is part of our reality. The track clocks in at just under 3 minutes, but it's one that you'll have on repeat until his album, RetroHash, drops. April 22nd couldn't come faster.
