Brahma, listen to Things Fall Apart and/or Illedelph, then tell me you still think they are pop. Recently they've put out more "commercial" singles, especially their last two albums. If you're refering to these songs, I can understand your statement...but please, buy/listen to Things Fall Apart and if you still think they're pop then........I dunno.

1. Thing Fall Apart
2. Do You Want More??!!

Things Fall Apart was big b/c of their single "You Got Me" featuring Badu. I think that single won a grammy....but becoming pop(ular) b/c of quality and "sounding" pop(ular) is a whole different thing. "Things..." dosen't sound pop: i.e. Step into the Realm, Dynamite!, Adreneline, 100% Dundee, ect.... "You Got Me" was a slow song w/Badu singing the chorus but it didn't sound pop. The Next Movement didn't sound pop to me, either.

Exactly, they just finally got the success and recognition they deserved with Things Fall Apart.

Co signs. The Roots ain't pop. Pop means popular. The Roots ain't that popular. They have never pushed anything close to plat.

Illadelph Halflife is my fav,
Lyrically Black Thought could not be touched on this one, great beats, great guest appearances. A classic period.
