Wait, if there was a bomb scare, wouldn't this have shown up in the news?

Oh, you'd be surprised.

Also, regardless if Asher saved the world or not, he still got publicity.

It wasn't him. He wasn't even on the plane.

Asher Roth Was Not Involved In Airplane Melee
Posted Fri Jan 9, 2009 6:31am PST by Billy Johnson, Jr. in Hip-Hop Media Training
Asher Roth wants to make it clear that he was not involved in the incident Wednesday that involved the detaining of a man on a Delta flight to Los Angeles.

I spoke to Asher Thursday when he stopped by the Yahoo! Music office to preview his highly anticipated forthcoming debut which is due out in April.

The fast-rising hip-hop star who taped a performance on Last Call With Carson Daly Wednesday said that some early news reports on the melee incorrectly placed him on the plane and involved in the ruckus.

Asher clarified that he was not on the plane and did not witness the incident. He stressed that his band's guitarist Chris Llewellyn is the hero who should be getting the credit for initiating the take down of a passenger who pushed a stewardess to the ground, attempted to open the exit door of the plane in flight and claimed to have a bomb.


Chris has since been interviewed by Carson Daly and several major entertainment news outlets. This guy better get a BET Award, a Grammy, American Music Award or Hip Hop Honors.

When Chris heard commotion on the Los Angeles bound Delta flight Wednesday and saw that the man had knocked down a stewardess and was struggling to open the plane's rear door, he intervened. While the man warned that he had a bomb, the 6-foot 26-year-old tackled him. With the help of several other passengers, Chris kept the assailant restrained until the plane landed and authorities boarded and arrested him on suspicion of making a false bomb threat.

Chris told the Los Angeles Times that he thought the attacker was going to open the door and he wanted to stop him. "He was struggling hard-core," Chris told the daily newspaper. "I was holding down his arm. Somebody had a foot on his head. Everyone was holding down a different body part. He was going nuts. I was telling him to chill because he's not going any place."

Authorities did not find a bomb on the plane. Chris and those who helped him have been praised for their heroism by local and federal authorities.

Chris was traveling from Atlanta to appear with Asher on NBC's Last Call With Carson Daly. In addition to playing with Asher, Chris is half of the production team The Rockstars. The Berklee College of Music graduates have performed on concert bills with the likes of Gym Class Heroes, Ne-Yo and Three 6 Mafia. They also perform on Asher's "La Di Da."
Asher recently released his official first official single "I Love College." Asher's massive online buzz caught the attention of an A&R rep for SRC, the label that broke superstar hip-hop acts Akon and the Wu-Tang Clan. His clever and witty freestyle rhymes have received props from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Q-Tip. The Pennsylvania-bred MC is being touted as the next Eminem.
