Biografia

The Roots are an American hip-hop band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are famed for a having a jazzy, eclectic approach to hip-hop which includes live instrumentals. Their debut album was released in 1993 and they have collaborated with a wide range of artists from different genres, including Roy Ayers and Cody Chesnutt. The Roots have generated a lot of critical acclaim and influenced many rap and R&B acts.

The group’s original lineup was formed in Philadelphia around 1987.[1] They began to do shows around Philly and in 1992 or 1993, then left to perform in Europe. They rented out a flat in London and performed in Europe for approximately one year. In order to sustain themselves financially, The Roots released what would be known as their debut album: Organix. The album went on to sell about 150,000 copies. Following the release of Organix, several major record labels offered deals and the band signed with DGC Records, which at the time was better known for its grunge music releases. With their new record deal, the quintet headed back to the states.

    i really adore them, but that the seed is by far their most popular song is actually an insult to what they did in all those years...

    well .. the last 2 albums are conceptual... building specific atmosphere during the entire album.. not for everyday listening.. looking at it as a whole imho &TYSYC successfully fulfilled its purpose

    @KiDNaGi - thats the thing tho - there is nothing deep about the new album. I think it's aiming for "deep" or experimental but it fails hard. I'm sure that many people are scared to say that they don't like the last 2 albums cuz somebody is going to tell them that they "don't get it". We all see that they are on their musical trip, it's just that the trip has been boring for a while.

    5.5/10 for the new record. Not great. http://www.bensbigblog.com.au/2014/06/the-roots-and-then-you-shoot-your-cousin.html "The problem with ...And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is it is wildly inconsistent. There are moments of pure brilliance, and everytime Black Thought graces the microphone you shut up and listen because his demeanour demands attention. Each character he embodies takes on their own life, and he alone carries the concept to it's end. The rest of the band seem restless, jumping around through musical interludes that bare little resemblance to the overall mood. More Black Thought please, the man is a genius. "

    New album is all over the place, not liking it at all. The whole opera angle and then going "Whats for breakfast?? Cheeseburgers!!" is jarring as hell. That Black Rock song with Dice Raw is off key, don't know whats up with that.

    Can see why people don't like the new album. Definitely one of the worst I've heard by them

    ...more of an EP than an album. [2] The length of the album is just ridiculous. The Dark (Trinity) is the only track I can listen to, the rest are so weak and boring.

    biles is spot on; the new album isn't their best, but there are still some highs. The Dark (Trinity) is an outstanding track.

    @IAmTheYan what a ridiculous thing to say. KingHeff is perfectly entitled to his opinion. I know how he feels, you make one negative comment about someone and immediately get shot down. I don't think it's possible to like an ENTIRE artist/band's back catalogue, especially one as vast and diverse as The Roots.

    Why do people constantly hate on How I Got Over? I thought it was a good album with a good message, overall.
