Steve Rifkind Says Asher Roth Album Will Change Hip-Hop

The man who signed the Wu and Mobb Deep, declares that his new artist Asher Roth’s Asleep In The Bread Aisle will bear the Loud logo and will enter an elite class: The Top 5 Albums That Have Changed Hip-Hop. Whoa! Although he wouldn’t say it in the video, I have good authority that these are Rifkind’s other four picks:

N.W.A Straight Outta Compton

Public Enemy It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

Wu-Tang Clan Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers

Eminem The Marshall Mathers LP

Where’s does all this put Deeper Than Rap (which still hasn’t leaked. Ugh!)?

4-20, y’all.

    Wow, it’s almost as if Run DMC’s first 3 albums never happened.

    Given his criteria, Run DMC (Any of the 1st 3 LP’s could be acceptable), Beastie Boys “Licensed To Ill”, Eric B. & Rakim “Paid In Full”, Vanilla Ice “To The Extreme”, MC Hammer “Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em”, Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic Album” and Notorious B.I.G, “Ready To Die” all deserve mention as well for forever changing the direction, business and industry of Rap/Hip Hop forever with each subsequent release. I don’t see “Asleep In The Bread Aisle” having anywhere near the impact of ANY of these aforementioned projects, good or bad. Sorry, Steve!
