How I Got Over

The Roots - 2010

If a rap album is #1 on my top ten list, then I think its something special. I LOVE the vibe of this album. Its positive and hopeful, while questioning where were headed individually and as a country. The samples of indie artists from Joanna Newsom, Monsters of Folk, & Dirty Projectors, fit perfectly into the grooves laid down by the brilliant Roots band. The songs flow in and out of each other as effortlessly as Black Thoughts lyrics. Most rap albums are pompous, boastful, collections of wanna be singles, but How I Got Over is an album. (try Right On)
