A Statement from Asher Roth

Here’s a statement from Asher Roth regarding The Twitter Incident. He also explains his quote about Black rappers in a recent AP article.

As of late, statements I’ve made have been stirring up much controversy and speculation. It is in my best interest that I feel I should address these instances personally and specifically. Truth: I am 23 year old imperfect human being who’s world is drastically changing around him. Facebook is no longer for just me and my friends. Twitter is no longer solely for the watchful eye of my parents. A new responsibility and voice has been placed upon me and is being heard well beyond my immediate peers. I’ve been receiving a crash course on perspectives and a very real sensitivity that exists and is an essential part of our world. With that, I’d like to sincerely apologize for any words that have been misinterpreted and may have offended any man, woman or child.

The twitter situation was an immature attempt to poke fun at an infamously moronic joke. In doing so, I unconsciously stooped to the level of its originator, making it just as bad, if not worse. Pathetic. Lesson learned – nothing good can come from repeating hateful words, regardless of your intentions. Leaving no context in what was being said and being presented through text (no facial or vocal inflection) the sarcasm of the joke (or lack there of) was not properly perceived and left it purely in bad taste. I immediately apologized for my immaturity but the apologies and original post were deleted by my team in an effort to prevent more people from being offended. Unfortunately, the deletion of these statements led several people to believe that my apology was insincere, which is why I have made the decision to release this statement.

The latest quote on giving back was in response to a question about rappers and their money posed to me by the interviewer. With the question and entire vibe of the conversation not being present in the article, when my statement came out in print it appeared as if I was taking black rappers to task randomly. Not the case. Although I do feel strongly about giving back when we are in a position of power and prosperity, it is not my place to talk about what others should do with their lives. Lesson learned: talk about what you know. You can call them mistakes, I call them life lessons. It is my duty as a human being to choose my words carefully, for I am a kind soul who puts a lot of stock in the progess of humans. I am a work in progress, as we all are and I will take this opportunity to learn and grow. Its bigger than an apology, its an understanding.

Moving forward, I hope we can all take some perspective and guidance from the dialogue that has emerged from these situations. I know I already have and will continue to do so.

Onward and upward

With love,

Asher Roth

Re: the Africa quote, which you can read here.  I think he could have definitely worded his answer better, but I also feel that he has the right to answer a question honestly.

  53. willie Says:

    “Listening to Deeper Than Rap reveals many significant problems about Rick Ross. Forgetting his supposedly fabricated past and putting his current beef with 50 Cent aside, Ross just isn’t a strong enough rapper to carry an album by himself. The guests rarely do anything beyond cluttering the track, and many of the hooks are longer than the verses, meaning there’s even less Ross mic time than there should be. The inability to rap beyond wealth and women for the majority of the album also hurts more than helps as many of the tracks become interchangeable. Deeper Than Rap gets a pass, but only just. Not really recommended, even for Ross fans.”

    Alex Rodriguez won’t talk about the latest allegations that he may have used steroids when he was a highly touted high school player and performance-enhancers while playing for the New York Yankees.

    Rodriguez said, “I’m not going there,” when asked Thursday to comment on the report in the New York Daily News, which quoted excerpts from an upcoming book, “A-Rod,” on Rodriguez by Sports Illustrated writer Selena Roberts.

    The book offers an unflattering portrait of the MVP slugger as a needy personality who wanted his ego stroked constantly, according to the Daily News.

    *attempts to get unbanned*

    I’m sorry, my words were taken out of context without any facial expression or vocal inflections the reflect sarcasm or lack thereof.

    LOL

    As of late, statements I’ve made have been stirring up much controversy and speculation. It is in my best interest that I feel I should address these instances personally and specifically. Truth: I am 23 year old imperfect human being who’s world is drastically changing around him. Facebook is no longer for just me and my friends. Twitter is no longer solely for the watchful eye of my parents. A new responsibility and voice has been placed upon me and is being heard well beyond my immediate peers. I’ve been receiving a crash course on perspectives and a very real sensitivity that exists and is an essential part of our world. With that, I’d like to sincerely apologize for any words that have been misinterpreted and may have offended any man, woman or child.

    The twitter situation was an immature attempt to poke fun at an infamously moronic joke. In doing so, I unconsciously stooped to the level of its originator, making it just as bad, if not worse. Pathetic. Lesson learned – nothing good can come from repeating hateful words, regardless of your intentions. Leaving no context in what was being said and being presented through text (no facial or vocal inflection) the sarcasm of the joke (or lack there of) was not properly perceived and left it purely in bad taste. I immediately apologized for my immaturity but the apologies and original post were deleted by my team in an effort to prevent more people from being offended. Unfortunately, the deletion of these statements led several people to believe that my apology was insincere, which is why I have made the decision to release this statement.

    The latest quote on giving back was in response to a question about rappers and their money posed to me by the interviewer. With the question and entire vibe of the conversation not being present in the article, when my statement came out in print it appeared as if I was taking black rappers to task randomly. Not the case. Although I do feel strongly about giving back when we are in a position of power and prosperity, it is not my place to talk about what others should do with their lives. Lesson learned: talk about what you know. You can call them mistakes, I call them life lessons. It is my duty as a human being to choose my words carefully, for I am a kind soul who puts a lot of stock in the progess of humans. I am a work in progress, as we all are and I will take this opportunity to learn and grow. Its bigger than an apology, its an understanding.

    Moving forward, I hope we can all take some perspective and guidance from the dialogue that has emerged from these situations. I know I already have and will continue to do so.

    Onward and upward

    With love,

    Asher Roth

    ^^^^^^^^^^^Can somebody delete that…complete accident.

    Anywho..

    Honestly the thing never even bothered me. I think people take stuff too seriously these days, but everybody doesn’t have the same sense of humor. Anyway its good to see he finally came out and addressed it.

    His album wasn’t great. Kind of a disappointment imo. Tried to give it a few listens, and I just get bored. the C-lo joints are the best (pause).

    Anyway, I thought his response was well-written, and at least sounded sincere. Back to the music please.
