yeah i definitely agree with you, they are great from all aspects. one of the best discographies, made their own rules for what hip-hop was allowed to sound like, original as hell, has one of the best MC’s in the world and arguably the best live drummer repping hip-hop, etc, etc. can’t wait for their new album, i know it’s gonna be banging like all of their albums!

I agree with this article, The Roots are incredible. But what about artists like Nas or Ghostface for example? I think they have stayed relevant, and both have been around longer than Jay.

I’d come to check with you here. Which is not something I typically do! I really like reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!
