Asher Roth Foils “Terrorist” Bombing

File under: Headlines I never thought I’d write.

According to Asher’s publicist, via URB, the rapper was one of a bunch of passengers who joined together and subdued a man who made a bomb threat on a flight from Atlanta to L.A. earlier today.

According to the L.A. Times:

The unidentified man was aboard Delta Airlines Flight 110, which was approaching Los Angeles, when he got up and stated he had a bomb, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

There was an altercation with multiple passengers, who ultimately subdued the man with plastic ties. At one point he tried to exit through one of the aircraft doors after the flight landed at LAX.

    Yo know where nigga go wrong, when they start to let everything else but the music have an impact on how they feel about an artist. I think niggas really forget sometimes that they are artist and they primarily make music. Like your a geek and a tool if you get caught up in anything else and especially if it has an impact on how you feel about an artist……i swear niggas are wind up dolls….shits disgusting B.

    I was wondering how they were gonna market dude besides just saying “he’s the next Eminem”. Now we know. He’s going to be on People Magazine for stopping a “terrorist” attack. Brillant.

  3. Joe 88 Says:

    I wish cats would stop acting like Ransom meant to spank that guy’s face…..cause he had a little auto-tune in his voice when he was talking to the slapee

    ^That’s not the point, the point was he wanted to handle the beef like a real nigga by fighting, joey, does some sucka shit & comes to this nigga house with a camera & goons, so all rules of the streets are out the window now, ransom the next night went to one of the niggas houses (he said he was gonna slap all of them niggas that was with budden one by one) the dude wasn’t there, ransom still being a real nigga didn’t raise his voice once to dude, he just asked for his brother, dude was acting stupid, and got slapped, even if he didn’t mean for it to happen, someone had to get slapped. Now in ignorant hoods all over the U.S ransom is that nigga. I hear niggas talking bout ransom that never even heard of him simply because of that slap. Ran won on every level

    JUST GO GET THAT NIGGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For the most part I agree with you, but you’re telling me if your favorite rapper said “Fuckdominicans! you’d still listen to his shit? My point is that there are certain lines that everybody has in terms of how much bullshit they’re willing to accept from artists.

    ^You sound agitated that someone focuses on what’s prevalent. Nobody said they didn’t like his music. A few just think he’s clownish. He is a Black man and in our culture he will automatically be placed under the scope. ESPECIALLY when his said “craft” contradicts actions that he often look down upon. If it was all about the music Nahright wouldn’t even be half as popular as it is now.

    First of all lets be real Ransom spoke to the nigga like he didn’t want no problems in that baseless voice (certainly not because he was real, whether he is or he isnt) but because he obviously knew he was doing something stupid and buns. We didn’t he go to Budden’s block? Why didn’t he slap (which is what females do) duke with his own bare hands? How do niggas perceive this as being tough or real? Im very puzzled right now.

    I know niggas laughed at it for days, but I didnt see anyone holding Ransom up as the poster child of “realness”.

    Niggas was just calling joe out on his hypocrisy, which you’re refusing to see for some reason.

    ^You totally missed my point dude (n/h) when did I ever say I won’t listen to budden again? I gave him his mic props (n/h) in both of my rants, but facts is facts, he’s a nerd, a herb, a clown, and you know what guys like them do? Pick on someone they think they can beat, and when that person don’t back down they wave white flags, I been seen it, but he proved it for me. He’s still dope

    ^Who said Ransom was “real”? I don’t remember anyone saying that. What I DO remember the lot saying is that Joe didn’t expect him to retaliate to all the verbal jabs. And Joe got extra sensitive about Fabolous having his girl’s ass in the air and this is how the so-called beef started. We just all think it’s humorous that an unintentional victim was slapped and then closed his door to get get the frozen peas (c) FStylez

  33. Boosie Says:

    Joe 88,

    thats the realest shit you ever wrote…It’s funny how Joe budden is mad at vlad tv, but vlad tv is only one of many dvd/tv companies that instigate and promote rap fueds/beefs/violence….Joe budden is showing his hypocrisy in every which way…joe budden tv is no different than vlad tv…and therefore vlad tv is not accountable…

    he’s agitated because vlad tv showed his own personal beef with ransom, and is cherry picking to his own personal benefit, when TMZ and others do the same thing just on a crakker/hollywood ish level…

    So soulja boy and all the others are show but his situation is the only one that was real? GTFOH. that was show too….he was talking about goons and all this stuff….hypocrisy at its best

  34. b-ease Says:

    ^So if he said “fuck Puerto Ricans” you would listen anyway?

    >First of all lets be real Ransom spoke to the nigga like he didn’t want no problems in that baseless voice (certainly not because he was real, whether he is or he isnt)

    ^You didn’t read my second rant did you? I said it was real of ran for trying not to involve anyone that wasn’t there, which is why he was talking to duke like that, he kept asking him to call his brother, that’s all, never said he was real for the slap, said he was real for playing the game how it’s suppose to be played, budden’s crossed that line by going to HIS HOUSE FIRST.

    but because he obviously knew he was doing something stupid and buns.

    ^How was it buns? How was it stupid? I come to your house to fight you, your not gonna say “oh, i’m not going to 88’s house, that’s just stupid” be real man

    >We didn’t he go to Budden’s block?

    ^He said he WAS GOING TO ALL THEM NIGGAS HOUSES, DUDE WAS JUST THE FIRST STOP, then the next day budden squashed it, you haven’t seen a ransom video yet, another point for ransom

    >>>>Why didn’t he slap (which is what females do) duke with his own bare hands?

    ^Cause he had nothing to do with it, his man just got aggy, why would he slap him? He wasn’t there

    >>>How do niggas perceive this as being tough or real? Im very puzzled right now.

    ^D_Block, your my man (n/h) I fuck with you like I know you, but real talk…………..nevermind, i’m not even gonna say nothing. Just look at it from both angles (no porn movie)

    First of all i never denied that fact that Joe did look like a hypocryte. He went back on his word and did the rigth thing which in the hip hop world in synonomous with being pussy. I’m just simply stating that no matter how much of an L you guys say Joe took, it won’t change my view on their music. And Billz like i said before its a well documented fact that when Joe 88 says someone is a herb he wont fuck with there music…..so i had good grounds on saying what i said….and give a sec people i have to many people to respond to and i had 6 henne and cokes at Uno’s.

You have said on here more then a few times that if i think the person is a herb that i wont listen to their music, now if you feel different now that thats fine but thats what you have said. So based on your saying these things i said that its corny not to listen to someone because of what happen off wax. (wow i must be nuts for saying such things right) and that race comparison was asinine and i still stand by statement. Yes for the record Joe does look like a herb for going to a niggas block and when a niggas goes and slaps his man in retaliation then you wanna make peace but all this is irrelevant to the objective, which is MUSIC….yea next.
