The Roots – Rising Down ft. Mos Def & Styles P

The Roots are absolutely one of the best hip hop groups of all time, and Black Thought should get more love for his flow.  This gem is the title track off Rising Down (2008).

The Roots – Mellow My Man

This is off Do You Want More?!!!??! (1994)

Its a hip hop/jazz album and is probably my favorite roots album, hard to believe that its nearly 20 years old now. Get it if you don’t have it

Les Nubians ft. The Roots – Sweetest Taboo

This is a French remix of Sade’s Sweetest Taboo, I couldn’t decide which one to post, but I think I like this one more, even though I don’t understand most of it.

Great new track by The Roots, off their recent album, “Undun,” who seem to always put out a quality product. Here’s to hoping that ?uestlove can fight through his arthritis for years to come.
