Asher Roth Brings Yet More Whiteness Into Our Day


As it’s officially white rapper day on Vulture (see our history of white folks in hip-hop, which was so comprehensive that Sasha Frere-Jones could think of only three measly additions, plus our look at Eminem’s SHOCKING horror-movie trailer), we now present Asher Roth’s new video for “Be By Myself,” which features Cee Lo, plus a bunch of vixens with what looks like — yes — white paint, or at least, some digital approximation of it (unless it’s an approximation of something else) being poured over their bodies. For those of you who’ve noted Roth recently stepping into a bit of something on Twitter, let us reassure you that this should only offend people who mind degrading images of women.
