Playing tracks by
The Roots, The Roots ft. Bahamadia , The Roots Ft Jill Scott, The Roots ft. Truck North & Saigon, John Legend & The Roots (ft. Common & Melanie Fiona) and more.
So The Roots released their 13th studio album, “Undun” yesterday and don’t seem like they are ever going to stop doing what they do since when I was born (1980-something, yeah... ahem…) Being the die-hard Roots fan I am, I thought it would be a good idea to make a brief summary of their extraordinary work through those 13 albums.
Since the material is just A LOT, I’m going to do this in two parts - I present the first part today. The set (that is in somewhat chronological order of the albums from “Organix” down to “Undun” with a few albums left out for the next part) starts with an energetic section followed by an intermission through their live performance of ‘Essaywhuman!!!!’, then mellow it down a bit and finally conclude with Ursula Rucker’s spoken word piece ‘The Adventures in Wonderland’ off their “Illadelph Halflife” album… Enjoy…
