Asher Roth Releases New Album

Asleep in the Bread Aisle, Asher Roth's newest album, which released today...4/20. Come on. I have too much built up rage about this joke-of-a-collegiate-wanna-be-rapper to calm myself and write something provocative; I'm going to leave the opinions up to a concise and well put comment by Spin writer J. Gabriel Boylan (via Idolator):

"Lacking the lyrical gymnastics and personality of his mix tapes and freestyles, Roth’s debut boasts a laziness that borders on contempt. Unburdened by Kanye’s melancholia or Eminem’s vertiginousness, Roth is perfectly likable, and perfectly bland.” [J. Gabriel Boylan, Spin]

Hang it up.
