  • The Roots Appreciation Thread

    Had to do it

    15 Years and 8 albums deep and they're still released great albums.


    No one fucking with that tbh.

    Did I mention that they're the greatest band in Hip Hop history?

        We need a black thought solo album.

          What's everyone's favorite album? I can't decide, but I'm leaning toward Illadelph Halflife.

            For me it's either Phrenology or Things Fall Apart.

            But IMO none of their albums are below a 7/10

              Phrenology for me. The Seed (2.0) and Rhymes and Ammo are two of my favourite Roots songs.
              I'm just watching The Roots: Soul Stage Live that i've had on my Sky planner for a while now, they seem great live. I remember I was gutted I missed them when they came to Glasgow because I was going to be in New York at the time.

                I unfairly get annoyed by The Seed 'cause it's the one Roots song that all (white) people know and love.

                  Things Fall Apart or Game Theory. Mainly Game Theory simply because "In The Music" & "Long Time" are two of my favourite songs ever.

                  [Black Thought]
                  Yeah, I'm from the illest part of the Western Hemisphere
                  So if you into sight seein don't visit there
                  It's somewhere between Jersey and Delaware
                  Philly never scared and them *****z ain't timid there
                  Them young triggers lose lives by the minute there
                  It might start but the fight never finish there
                  They all fucked up tryin to get the gingerbread
                  A few stacks be the price for a *****'s head
                  Cops and robbers, cowboys and indians
                  Clips and revolvers and George's and Benjamin's
                  A celebration of the loss of your innocence
                  To you old self you've lost any resemblance
                  They say the city make a dark impression
                  The youth just lost and they want direction
                  But they don't get the police, they get the protection
                  And walk around with heat like Charlton Heston, man

                    I think mine is Game Theory for the same reason. Its so hard to pick a favourite album though when they're all so awesome.

                    There's a cover of the seed by some punk band on a compilation called "Punk goes Crunk" (don't quite know how the seed counts as crunk, but there you go), by all accounts it is a truly horrible version.
                    Harry Redknapp; he's got a twitch. How he got it we don't know, how he got it we don't care. All we know is he has got a twitch. He's got a twitch...
