The Roots - "How I Got Over"

As far as hip hop is concerned, the hip hop band The Roots are legendary.  From Organix to their last release The Rising Down, The Roots (known primarily for emcee Black Thought and drummer/frontman ?uestlove) simply put out classic albums that are respected both by heads and the mainstream media and have greatly influence hip hop bands like Gym Class Heroes and Vonnegutt.  This song is the lead single and title track off of their upcoming album (scheduled to be released November 17th.  It includes a sample of Cody Chesnutt's "Serve The Royalty."  Many of you will recognize Chesnutt as the artist The Roots collaboratted with on "The Seed (2.0)" (which I've taken the liberty of attaching), a classic song that is impossible to hate if you like either rap or rock.

Peace, Love, & Hip Hop,
