Notable Quotable – Asher Roth On “Bold & Arrogant”

02.08.10 7 years ago 12 Comments

Descendant of condescending, sending a kind of scent
The nostrils get type of sting / a narcissistic kind of thing
I’m often met with harp and strings and an operatic sing
When I walk inside the ring you would thought that I had wings,
On the softer side of things I’m just an unrealistic optimist
My awesomeness is off the grid, an awesome kid anonymous,
Got the hottest chick with a cock in her esophagus
All you other novices are obviously just talkin’ shit,
Hot-doggin’ it, apartment smells mahogany
Carpentry and archery have all been called anomalies,
Honestly, Avant-gaaaarde of the artistry
Pardon the applause but they’ve all started calling me
(Bold and arrogant, they ain’t arrogant)
Won’t even preform if my oranges ain’t Mandarin,
Candles lit, little mayonnaise up on my sand-a-wich
You don’t like my manners you can handle it with management”


Asher Roth on “Bold & Arrogant” (Remix)

Ash Roth, the cocky CT PA kid everybody hated on (including myself) a year ago for sitting cross-legged and rapping about low-fat yogurt and incense while trying to show & prove to XXL, is now being tapped into by Hip-Hop’s connoisseurs for that very arrogance that got him shine in the first place. First it was Smoke DZA, followed by Con Man and Bobby Ray.

Now Green Lantern’s guy Emilio Rojas enlisted Roth’s gifted, pre-rap pretension for the remix to “Bold & Arrogant,” a perfect fit for the elitist to toss around any of the hoity-toity braggadocio we’ve come to know and love/hate. The result is filet mignon with an easy, cheesy sprinkle of syllabic one-up-manship.
