Asleep In The Bread Aisle, Asher Roth
Asher Roth took the school gimmick too seriously. He also took it as a gimmick. The kid could rhyme but that debut album... let's just say it was as bland as its appropriate album title. This marks the negative influence that College Dropout had, and Asher hasn't yet been able to crawl out from under the crushing categorization of "frat rap." Kanye used the college motif as a platform off which to catapult into the universe; Asher used it as more of a crutch.
