Asher Roth VCU Concert Scrutinized By Anti-Drug Organization
(AllHipHop News) A concert in Richmond, Virigina featuring rapper Asher Roth and B.o.B. has come under fire by an anti-drug organization.
Asher Roth and B.o.B. are slated to hit the stage at the Back to School Jam concert on August 28th at the Siegel Center.
According to Denise Miller, president for the Regional Drug Free Alliance, Asher Roth’s beer drinking, fun-loving image, delivers the wrong message to college students.
Miller also expressed disappointment that the rapper’s cost $100,000, which the students are paying for.
“Having this artist come to the campus normalizes inappropriate, illegal and unhealthy behaviors,” Denise D. Miller, president for the Regional Drug Free Alliance and chairwoman for the Parents Council of Commonwealth Parenting, told the Richmond-Times Dispatch.
According to VCU, the student’s Programming Commission chose Asher Roth and B.o.B., who recently notched VMA nominations for his #1 singles “Beautiful Girls” and “Airplanes.”
Representatives for VCU are expected to ask Asher Roth to refrain from performing one of his best known songs, “I Love College,” due to the song’s lyrical content.
