Song: Muddy Swim Trunks
Artist: Asher Roth
Album: Seared Foie Gras (With Quince And Cranberry) (Mixtape)
Genre: Hip Hop / Pop Rap
Notes: From 2nd Mixtape
Analysis: Asher Roth confuses me. I like him, and I think he’s talented and has some really great everyman rhymes, but there are a lot of bullheaded folks still refusing to accept him. He doesn’t do much to help himself with these people, when it comes to song titles like ‘Muddy Swim Trunks’ that contain lines that repeat ‘Ayo quick life lesson: never touch a man’s (God damn) while he’s resting or while he’s bench pressing‘). Regardless, I’m hoping he can recover from his overly poppy debut, and start kicking out the type of music that will turn the stubborn minds around. I like this video, though: the one-shot camera trick always impresses me.
