Bo Burnham > Asher Roth

If you haven’t seen it yet, go check out the video for Asher Roth – “I Love College”. The video definitely adds to the song, but I’m still indifferent on Asher. Yes, he’s lyrically talented, has catchy catchphrases (“I’m nice right now”), huge cross-over/college appeal, and a cameo from Chuck & Mikey from the Cool Kids. All that aside, some of his interviews annoy me, and I can’t quite get past the gimmick, for better or worse.

For my money? I’ll take 18-yr-old Bo Burnham over Asher any day. Sure Bo’s a comedian, but he’s also “the greatest rappa eva… who can really find your G spot.” Just discovered his video over the weekend, and gave myself a Super Duper Late Pass since the video “I’m Bo Yo.” has 6+ million views on Youtube.

    This is what I imagine John Mayer sounding like if he rapped (I am a Mayer fan, FWIW).
