The new Roots album ain’t a bad listen

Posted from The Citrus Report

We were a little suspect at first about The Roots having so many pop guests on their new album, How I Got Over, but it turns out we were worried over nothing. We gave this album a listen last night, and its quite good. We actually thought their last two, Game Theory and Rising Down were dark, brilliant albums that went under the radar, but we think this year, How I Got Over will not be overlooked.

Here is the track, “How I Got Over.”
