Even people with a passing knowledge of Asher Roth’s career in the past two years know that the Pennsylvanian has switched up his rapping style. It’s more obtuse, over-pronounced and infinitely weirder, sort of like a kooky Warner Bros. cartoon.
Which is probably why Ash’s latest video for “Apples & Bananas,” fresh off June’s Greenhouse Effect Vol. 2, is animated. The track just plays better set against the Ryan Maloney-directed backdrop of Ash and friends’ trying to woo a bikini-clad Amazon. Apples and bananas do make an appearance in the video, but it’s disheartening to see that Ash’s girl next door serves apple slices with the seeds. Because really: who the hell does that?
