    Biography

    Roth's lyrics characteristically center around what has been called "middle-class minutiae." Like many hip hop songs, Roth's song "I Love College" is about partying with alcohol and marijuana, but includes innocuous lyrics such as "I can get pizza a dollar a slice" that have been identified as "far from threatening"

    Roth has earned many comparisons to Eminem. About the comparison, Roth told Complex magazine:

    Him and I are different artists. I think the music's going to portray that as time goes on. The comparisons are just,it's cool to be compared to Em, but he's one of the number one selling artists of all time. I'd rather be compared to him than pretty much anybody else. I think content and everything we rap about is completely different. We're different artists. We just happened to be under the same genre.

    When asked about the comparison, Roth told Hiphopdx.com, "I think it's too easy. 'A white emcee with a sense of humor and a political side? Oh, let's compare him to Em!', I have nothing but respect for him though; he made it possible for me to be here, he opened the doors, but we come from an entirely different inspiration." Also in a song entitled "Silly Boy" produced by Don Cannon he raps "That Eminem comparison is barely accurate/My rapping is as passionate, but lacks the psychopath of it". Roth has professed to Mos Def, The Roots, Biggie, and Outkast as being some of his main hip-hop influences.
