Mac Miller Says He Knows Where Asher Roth Went Wrong
 

 

Mac Miller speaks to XXL about the never-ending Asher Roth comparisons

To let the bloggosphere tell it, Mac Miller took Asher Roth’s spot.

But, though the two White Pennsylvania-bred MCs —Asher is from Morrisville and Mac is from Pittsburgh— and former XXL Freshmen have drawn comparisons for their college-friendly fanbase, carefree content and weed-head persona, their careers appear to be headed in different directions.

Two years after Asher’s debut, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, released via SRC/Universal, failed to meet commercial expectations—selling 62, 000 in its first week—Mac’s debut, Blue Slide Park, is projected to sell roughly 100, 000 units independently in its first week. And, according to Mac, he knows exactly where the former Great White Hope went wrong.

“Asher Roth came out with ‘I love College’ and that’s not really him as an artist,” Mac told XXL. “He likes to rap his a.ss off. He likes to spit, and he’s on some positive change the world type sh*t for the better, and that’s not him. They thought that would be a hit song. And I think that was the thing, like, he came out in that lane that they pushed him in and he didn’t wanna go there. He just wants to rap and sh*t.”

Though he owns up to having similarities with Asher, Mac is confident he’s in a lane of his own.

“I have some jams where you’re like, ‘Hell Yeah, these are great to get high to,’” he explains. “These songs are great to fu*k a bi*ch to. These songs are great for you to sit by yourself and think about some sh*t. These songs are good for you just to hear someone rap they a.ss off, so for you to box me into one type of thing is like you kinda being an idiot.”

Mac Miller’s Blue Slide Park is in stores now. Also look for Mac in XXL‘s December/January issue on newsstands December 6

so he basically said Asher didn't blow up because he is not as lame as him (Mac Miller)

I would agree with that

even tho Mac Miller is a.ss on the mic

I don't get how people are even mentioning him flopping

he already sold 100k independent.. thats crazy

Tyler sold 60k first week to put it into perspective

rappers on majors are happy with selling 130k first week

it's not like I love College wasn't a good song.. that sh*t was dope. but at the same time asher didn't really keep pushing out new records after that, at least good ones. then everyone just stopped talkin about him

at least the white boy got on madden tho.. even tho i think he ruined an amazing beat/hook by akon.

i think it's his voice man.. he doesn't have a voice that stands out, even tho he can spit nice sometimes

This is one of those disses disguised as a compliment.

Mac got a lil more buzz then Asher and now thinks he's the sh*t. If it wasn't for Wiz, Mac miller will still be selling CD's at his high school
