With Rising Down, the band's 10th album release, The Roots continue to take bolder steps adding new depths and range to their repertoire. Standout tracks include 'Criminal' (a reflection of life on the streets and unjust persecution), 'I Will Not Apologize' (a tribute to Fela Kuti that discusses keeping dignity in the music biz) and 'I Can't Help It' (a look at addictions and urges that compel us all). The Pop-infused first single, 'Birthday Girl', features Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump. Additional guests on the album include Common, Mos. I was sold on the roots when I heard and saw the seed video. Went to the store and picked up things Fall Apart. After that I can barely listen to anything else besides my reggae. The Roots (and guests) are the most under rated, intelligent, real, creative group out there.
It would've been easy for the Roots to sell out. Already one of the few groups whose fans extend beyond the typical alternative rap base, tacking on the acoustic-guitary pop-rap song "Birthday Girl" - which leaked the month before Rising Down's release and features Patrick Stump crooning "What is it we want to do, now that I'm allowed to be alone with you?" - could've been a natural, and maybe.
The Roots' members have been melding politics and hip-hop since 1993, releasing Rising Down this week. The new record includes a track called "Rising Up!" Roots drummer Ahmir Thompson, . uestlove, says the titles draw on William T. Vollmann's Rising Up and Rising Down, a book about the psychological nature of violence. The album in sort of its political hand really deals with how human will use violence before anything," ?uestlove says
