Allhiphop.com reported that emcee Asher Roth was involved in stopping a bomb scare on an airplane today. According to the website, the incident occurred on a flight from Atlanta to LAX. A struggle broke out between a flight attendant and with a man who claimed to have a bomb. The subject was subdued by passengers, including Roth and bassist Chris Llewellyn.

I briefly referenced Roth and his performance in my post about the mtvU Woodie Awards. I failed to mention that he apparently also fights crime. According to Roth’s Wikipedia entry, he was recently named one of Hip Hop’s Top 10 Freshmen of 2009 by XXL magazine. Meanwhile, his debut album is set to be released in March of this year. For more on this story, check out this article I found from MTV News while writing this post.


Woodie Awards, Count Me In

Howdy blogosphere. Okay so I know the mtvU Woodie Awards were almost a month ago, but I like rocking out. I also like All Time Low. So heres a video of All Time Low’s live performance of “Dear Maria, Count Me In.” Watch for when frontman Alex Gaskarth chucks his guitar across the stage at 2:01.


It was a night of cool and crazy collaborations, beginning with the show’s opener, featuring The Cool Kids and Asher Roth performing “Delivery Man.” Among others, Q-Tip dropped in to team up with Lykke Li on her rendition of A Tribe Called Quest’s “Can I Kick It?”, Chromeo added some vocoder action to Vampire Weekend‘sThe Kids Don’t Stand a Chance,” and Naeem Juwan from Spank Rock took the stage to accompany Santorock on “Shove It.”
