Eminem Thinks Asher Roth is Dope

blame it on Shake April 24, 2009

RapRadar posted up a clipping from the upcoming XXL magzine (that hits news stands May 5th) in which Eminem speaks on the Asher Roth comparisons…

Asher Roth, I haven’t had a chance to, like, really get into everything, like, really get into what he’s about, because I’ve only hear a couple songs. There was talk about people saying he sounded like me, and he was doing this and that and, you know, trying to take what I do and do it. You know, shit like that. I’ve heard things. But the stuff that I’ve heard from him honestly, which certainly isn’t enough for me to make my own opinion and say, ‘Yeah, he does sound like me’ or ‘No, he doesn’t.’ But the couple of songs I’ve head, I don’t really think he does. You know what I mean? He’s doing his own thing. I can respect it, too, because at the end of the day, I think he’s dope.

…now what else do the haters need? What more could you ask for? I understand someone not liking Asher’s music, that’s cool… just ignore the posts then. It’s really easy. I promise you.
