From Complex Sports:
Asher Roth has never been one to shy away from his love of sports. From shouting out Marcus Allen, Fred Biletnikoff, and Ed McCaffrey on his track “I’m Eddy” to likening himself to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith in an article for ESPN, Asher lives and dies with his teams. He understands how sports can control people’s lives and emotion in an infuriating way.
Nothing captures the passion of the sports world quite like an NCAA March Madness tournament. The upsets, the Cinderella stories and the buzzer-beaters all contribute to make for an unreal month of basketball. Asher took that craziness and applied it to a live performance tour that he rightfully dubbed the Final Four Tour. Over the past month and a half, he’s hit 11 NCAA tournament campuses, coming to a close today in New Orleans, where the Final Four is held this year. Asher took a minute to talk to Complex about the tour and give us his Final Four picks for this weekend.
