Here is the second part of “The Roth Boys” is here. This Q&A interview was conducted in 2009 and the Pilots Cabin will surely do a follow up this year that will hopefully include Asher Roth and his DJ, Greg Wreckineyez.
PC: Hey Boyder! Thanks for connecting with us here at the Pilots Cabin! First, aan you let the Pilots Cabin fans know who you are and what Boyder! is all about?
TB: I am Boyder! I am an idea man and I thrive on enthusiasm.
PC: I’ve posted your hilarious videos for fans to see, but what is the Boydercam really all about? What do we expect from the Boydercam in the near future?
TB: Boydercam started when I was in Atlanta. But I’ve always videotaped everything, I got over 50 hours of video of us from college (when Bangley was clean shaven and Asher was rocking polo’s). And I kept filming everything once we got to Atlanta. But now it wasn’t these three corny regular white boys in college, it was these three corny white boys infiltrating the music and entertainment industry. We’d be hanging out at posh clubs with Ludacris and Usher all while rocking mesh shorts, and I thought, I wish my family and friends back at home could see what’s going on here, so I started posting them. I admit the way I edit my videos is on some bootlegged shit with the BOYDERCAM tag and the HAHAyo tag, but I like to tell people that my videos are the “mesh shorts” of youtube. I’m not trying to prove anything crazy, we’re just chillin’. Plus, having people like Asher, Bangley, and Wreckineyez around makes it easy to capture some classic shit. Look for that “DJ Wreckineyez gets married” video and maybe even a “BOYDER is the NICEST” video! BOYDER!
PC: Don’t leave the details out, how did you meet Asher Roth and whats the road been like?
TB: Asher and I went to West Chester together. We had mutual friends, but we never really linked up like that. Then one friggin’ day I was late to work driving down a back alley and I see Asher running up the street, and he was waving me down while buttoning up his shirt. He was also late to his job and he asked me for a ride. It was the complete opposite direction so I am thinking in my mind, “HELL NO DOGGIE”. Haha. But I figured, I’m going to be late either way so I drove him. I remember him talking about how he was going to start DJ-ing to make money and I told him how Jigga’s Blueprint was my favorite album of all time. It was my birthday party that weekend and I invited him through. My house was the sleeper party house too, I always made sure everyone had a good time and no one got arrested. (123 Magnolia Street – We called it the Leaning Tower of Nolia – Cus the kitchen was sloped) Him and his boys kept coming through to party and we all became homies. Now, Asher is my brother. He is one of the realist people you’ll ever meet.
PC: How was college for you? Do you relate to ‘I Love College’?
TB: “I Love College” was an exact portrayal of what college was like for us. The song was made as a way for us to reminisce, because we were months out of college and stuck in Atlanta and we just missed the heck out of college. It’s funny the way people talk about that song, and say it was manufactured to be a radio song. Ash and us just wanted to go back to the last 4 years of our lives. The label wasn’t even supposed to hear that song!
PC: How did you meet Brain Bangley?
TB: Bangley lived in my neighborhood when we were kids. Young young kids. I remember roller SKATING in his basement listening to Kriss Kross. Ask Bangley about the kickball games at recess…And the first and last time he tried to test my arm from the outfield. Haha. Or about my bouncyball collection. Bangley is my brother too. Some Brain Bangley factoid’s for the fans are : He once wrote his name as “The Funkdoctor” on a history test, He used to drive into the high school parking lot in the morning blaring “the perculator” through a megaphone out his window, He streaked naked down a street and literally ran into a cop, Him and I once remade the song “Roll Out” by LUDA and called it “Row Out” as Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer for extra credit in 11th grade english, and I have never heard him lie in my life.
PC: How did you meet DJ Wreckineyez?
TB: I met Wreck in Atlanta. We were looking for a dope DJ and that’s exactly what Wreck was. It worked out that he fit right into our group too. We were at the point where we pretty much defined who was in our inner circle of homies. But we met Wreck and he has become a great addition. I know you see the videos of Wreck getting super nice, but he is way more than that. He is a great human being and a super talented DJ.
PC: Whats your most memorable moment hanging with Asher and Company?
TB: Up to date? To be honest, everytime we leave somewhere I always find myself saying “That was the best time of my life”. So the most recent experience to date would have to be Wreck getting married in Vegas. My face hurt from laughing so hard the next day.
PC: Can you give us a little sneak preview of things that are in the ‘works’ right now?
TB: In the works..New Asher music. New Boydercam videos. (I think we’re meeting Tiger Woods tonight so I’ll Boydercam that) And oh yeah.. www.SeeMeSawYou.com – Thank you guys for reaching out!
