“Suburban Rapper” Samples Weezer, Weezer Announce North American Tour

Popular “suburban rapper” Asher Roth samples Weezer’s “Say It Ain’t So” in his debut single “I Love College.” It leaked yesterday. It’s been a long time since we’ve mentioned Weezer. The Morrisville, PA rapper (who currently lives in Atlanta) is signed to SRC records (see Akon, Wu-Tang, Remy Ma). Asher recently got his name out some more with the help of Don Cannon and DJ Drama via The Greenhouse Effect mixtape (you can download it at his site). He recently did work with the Cool Kids. OK, now that you know a bit more about frat rap, take a listen to the track while you read over the Weezer tour dates.

Asher also does Weezy via a cover of “A Milli,” which you can hear at his MySpace. As far as the “I Love College” sampling material, Weezer themselves head on a Red-powered North American tour in September. The openings bands are Warped Tour favorites Angels And Airwaves and blog favorites Tokyo Police Club. The dates:
