You Are You- Asher Roth Feat. Slick Rick


Many of you may not know much about Asher Roth.  You’re knowledge of his music stops and ends at his “I Love College,” which is a great song, but it doesn’t even graze the surface of what he’s about.  One of the things that I love about Asher is that he doesn’t hide the fact that he’s smart and from the suburbs in his work.  Asher Roth never tries to change or hide who he is, which is something that you can only respect.  His song with Slick Rick, “You Are You,” should seriously be an anthem for everybody.  It talks about loving yourself no matter what because you’ll never be able to change who you are.  You are you, so just embrace it already!
