Aww, rap's favorite white boys love each other.
The above video is Asher's response to some diplomatic love-showing Eminem does in the upcoming issue of XXL. Unlike Angela Yee, they came through and asked the question everybody wants to know. Here's what Em said:
Add that to the "Big Brother" style dedication song on Asher's LP, "As I Em" and it looks like the potential foes may be fast friends.
"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."
Is it just me, or would a younger "Real Slim Shady" era Eminem have ether-ed him yesterday?
Props to Rap Radar for doin' their thing.
