The Roots have always been one of my favorite hip hop groups. I’ve listened to their songs sporadically over the past few years and each time they keep me coming back for more. Rapper Black Thought is one of the most lyrically gifted rappers of all time. Many times his verses completely catch you off-guard to which you have to rewind the song to make sure you fully grasp what he just said.
To this day I still believe that “Things Fall Apart” is one of their best albums with its diverse and eclectic songs. This album completely displayed just how underrated The Roots truly are.
Their new record entitled “…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin” will be released on Monday and their first single from the album “When The People Cheer” is another hit from the band.
