Known as a white rapper, Asher Roth was immediately compared to Eminem, like all other white rappers. Like many other white rappers, Asher Roth’s style was nothing like Eminem’s. However, the difference in style was overlooked when Asher Roth spit his first rhyme, as his voice sounded eerily identical to Eminem’s.
HipHopDX.com recently caught up with Asher Roth and he announced he was headed into the studio with Nottz and Travis Barker for a new body of work. While this is Asher Roth’s first time working with Travis Barker, he has worked with Nottz before.
The name of their joint EP is called Rawther and Asher Roth discussed the sound of the new project, saying: “Weâ€™re doing another tape called Rawther. Travis Barker is on the drums, and itâ€™s just like so stupid. Heâ€™s trying all these new things and messing around…The new stuff that weâ€™re doing isâ€¦I donâ€™t even know if you can classify it as Hip Hop. Itâ€™s almost Rock music thatâ€™s coming from the boom bap, and thereâ€™s elements of psychedelic trip Rock [laughs]. I donâ€™t even know. Nottz is such a mad scientist.”
