The Roots Keep Doing It Again!
If you didn't know already, The Roots just released their lasted album, "How I Got Over" and it is definitely well worth the $10 that it cost. In my opinion, this is one of the best cd's of the year next to Reflection Eternal's "Revolutions Per Minute." People keep saying hip hop is dead. No, hip hop isn't dead, you just have to look a little deeper for the good stuff.
And I am going to leave you with a small taste from the album, one of the best songs on the album, "Doing It Again," featuring John Legend.
Black Thought has to be one of the illest mc's in the rap game but of course, he nor the Roots hardly ever get the props that they deserve. He said it the best in "Doing It Again":
It's Black Thought, for certain I'ma win eventually
This unsung, underrated, under-appreciated
The one them underachievers had underestimated
Finally graduated, I'm one of the most hated
Something that's so sacred, nobody gon' take it
