No, you’re not listening to Weezer. The opening licks come courtesy of college advocate Asher Roth, who has grown out his hair and left his old fraternity stomping grounds behind. Luckily, he has yet to part with his rapping ability, and while he has opted to move at his own pace, many loyal fans still keep a watchful eye on Asher’s movement. “This is a song about the importance of home,” prefaces Asher, before referencing notorious homebody Kevin McAllister, who has, undeniably, seen some shit.
“My impression is kinda like Kevin, left by his parents forgetting,” raps Roth, “left him alone at the home protecting it.” His bars possess a poetic quality to them, especially when read transcribed in lower case on his Soundcloud page. Yet rather than globetrotting to escape the poet’s fear of death, Roth has decided to stay fixed at home, where both mommy and dog love him unconditionally.

But my impression is kinda like Kevin left by his parents
Forgetting left him alone at the home protecting it and
He ain’t know it but he was growing
