Illadelph Halflife is probably my fav, but I have to admit Tipping Point is fire.
Why is this one the board four times?
Although Illadelph is their best IMO, Things Fall Apart is my fav.
I love all the Roots older stuff but the last one The Tipping Point is fresh and I love the direction of their music
1. Things Fall Apart
2. Do You Want More!!??!???!
3. Illadelph Halflife
all are 10/10 though, imo
the roots are pop music
Illadelph Halflife is my favorite but Things Fall Apart is great too. Other than those two, I don't really think any of their other work is even on that level but it is still good.
2-Things Fall Apart
4-Do You Want More
What a fuckin queer this guy is..........ROOTS are on of the dopest groups of all time you fuckin herbQuote:

okay.. i see your points -- but what about " Donīt say nothin... LALALA" Damn brovas! the roots are even more pop to me than black eyed peas ...
ok.. we have different views on real rap music.... my opinion is... they donīt have real street flow, credibility, no true skillz and the voices of the chorus singers are just toooo comercial.... what about wu tang girls singing the chorus.-- THAT`S SOME REAL VOICES FROM THE STREET AND uhhhhhh i feel that... the roots is pop too me.. maybe cause i only heard around 15 tracks of em yet... but DAMN - i donīt try to hear more .... SORRY! i canīt really respect rappers who put a female singer/chorus in so many songs.
but donīt beef about different views... i respect ya opinions. i for personal like dipset much and half of you donīt like em-.. so... peace
Do you want more!!!
because this was the album that introduced me to them, its so jazzy, funky and has so much replay value.
But illadelphalife is probably their best work especially BT lyrically, but has'nt got much of that live vibe that Do you want more and Things fall apart have.
Just beacuase they're music isn't about killing, guns etc. or isnt grimey doesn't mean they're pop.
Black Thought is the most underrated emcee in existence and Do You Want More, Illadelph and Things Fall Apart are all classics. Organix and Tipping Point are both very good too, even Phrenology is more than solid.

.......secondly saying that thr ROOTS suck and that you like DIPSET......haha.....those fuckin queers, who do the "girls just wanna have fun" remake.....and those shitty crossover attempts like "hey ma".........I am sure live in concert those dudes probably just lipsync to a vocal track
