Asher Roth Bio

Asher Paul Roth is an American rapper from Morrisville, Pennsylvania currently signed to a joint venture between Scooter Braun's Schoolboy Music and Steve Rifkind’s SRC Records. His first professional release was on June 13, 2008 when the DJ Drama and Don Cannon-helmed The GreenHouse Effect Mixtape was released for free via Roth’s website Thedailykush.com. Roth was featured on the cover of XXL magazine’s annual Top 10 Freshmen: Hip-Hop’s Class ’09 issue. Roth's debut album, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, was released April 20, 2009.

Roth was discovered by Braun on MySpace." In fall 2006, Roth sent a friend request to Braun over the social networking site. Braun didn't like Roth's music but did think his lyrics had promise. Later that month, Roth was signed. After linking up with Braun, Roth moved to Atlanta to pursue a hip-hop career full-time. As industry buzz grew, Roth was courted by a number of labels, including SRC, Def Jam, Warner Bros. Records and Atlantic. Braun organized a meeting between Roth and Jay-Z, where Roth was asked to rap for the Def Jam executive on the spot. Roth would eventually sign a joint venture between Braun's Schoolboy Music and Steve Rifkind, chairman of SRC/Universal Records. On June 13, 2008, Roth put out his first professional release, the Don Cannon and DJ Drama-helmed The Greenhouse Effect, via the Internet. DJ Drama was paid $500,000 to cosign Roth. This resulted in Roth being the first white rapper to be featured on Drama and Cannon’s influential Gangsta Grillz series.
