Rapper Asher Roth recently expressed how he felt after getting called out by Eminem on a track from his latest “Marshall Mathers LP 2.”
Roth was not affected negatively from the diss, instead he embraced the situation and chose not to take anything personal.
“How did I hear about it? I think Twitter first, a couple people hit me up,” Roth said in an interview. “It’s cool, man. I thought it was pretty amazing. I’m not going to lie. I didn’t take anything personal. There’s nothing really there. I’ve never met him, I don’t know him personally.” (Hot 97)
Asher also touched on referencing Em on his “As I Am” track.
“No. No,” Roth added when asked if he dissed Eminem. “It was just like, when things were coming out everybody was just like, ‘Ah, Em, Asher, Em, Asher, Em.’ So for me, I just wanted to talk about how I was my own person. And that’s really all it was. And talking about when I was introduced to Em’s music when I was young, in seventh grade. Talking about that relationship, being inspired by an emcee.” (Hot 97)
