I'm resurrecting this thread, because I haven't gotten a chance to talk about my favorite hip hop artists yet.
So here goes.
My girlfriend introduced me to them back in '05. I went out and bought Do You Want More??? and Phrenology at the same time. I enjoyed them both very much. I didn't get to see them until Bonarroo 2007, and it was ****in' phenomenal. If anybody hasn't witnessed their cover of Bob Dylan's "Masters of War", let me do you favor.
Right? Anyway, I was blown away. And then I saw them about 3 months later at my local House of Blues. And they played "Masters of War" again. I think I scared my girlfriend's friends with how excited I was during the show. I was one of maybe ten people in a crowd of 2,000 who was dancing, but I didn't care. Anybody who can go to a Roots show and not move is a ****in' puppet. I actually bumped into a white guy in a Grateful Dead T-shirt who gave me a dirty look. What a fool.

Yeah, it's just an okay album-- but I mean, it's still The Roots!
Life is just blah, blah, blah
You hope for blah
And sometimes you find it, but mostly it's blah
And waiting for blah
And hoping you were right about the blahs you made
And then, just when you think you've got the whole blah'd damn thing figured out
And you're surrounded by the ones you blah
Death shows up... anddd blah, blah, blah.

I'm excited about hearing How I Got Over, can't wait for that to come out. My favorite album, so far, is Game Theory. Simply love that ****. The Roots have been a favorite hip hop band of my mine for a while now, but I didn't get to see them until last year. They played a free 4/20 concert on the Mall in DC with O.A.R. (acoustic set), Gov't Mule, Umphrey's McGee, and some other people. It rained on us, but it was a sick concert and totally worth it.
