    Default The Source gives Asher Roth 4 MICS

    I don't have the link but I check the mag once in a while. I'm neither here nor there on the cd, but I've heard it and I don't think that it deserves 4 mics ikd though, thoughts?
    My qualm is when I think of ratings in the source a strange almost religious sense comes over me thinking of the classic 5 Mic Album, ie Illmatic, 36 Chambers etc.
    I know its all subjective but this rating makes me feel a little uneasy about how the mag wants to portray the culture, there are many other (better) white emcees who've made tons more records, but Asher has the promotion on his side, its a little sad to me

    Yeah, instead everyone should read XXL Vibe and... lol
    No, there are no good rap mags anymore, I wish there were no rap mags that were corporate at all.
    But unfortunately, anything that can make money will be leeched.

    i thought eminem exposed how corrupt the people who ran the source were 7-8 years ago.

    but they fell off even before that.

    Its sad what they did to that mag. We all know theyre on the payroll now.

    the record company is pushing Asser Roth hard, because hes a white college kid doing white college kid music, they are paying alot of blogs and such to promote him

    lol yea its ridiculous, its more of the stigma that goes with the idea of rating albums by "Mics", which they started...I think
