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.

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
