as long as we're still doing these







AND THEN YOU SHOOT YOUR COUSIN is better than any other roots album... it's simple man, them each back to back and u will see... beatwise first of all... AND THEN YOU SHOOT YOUR COUSIN is untouchable... their other albums do have their shining moments, but they dip here and there from a production standpoint.. Lyrically their other albums might be better, but AND THEN YOU SHOOT YOUR COUSIN has that energy that just cant be turned down! The MC's work well together and that's of THE ROOTS best production! I'm sure u will get a more emotional rush from COUSIN as apposed to illadeph halflife, phrenology, game theory, do you want more, how i got over, or undun.. better skits, better interludes, each track back to back is steller! u will feel it more! Music is emotion transmitted into sound...

my review of the roots discography


organix - had a few songs overall, boring

do you want more - dope but too many fillers

illadelph halflife - dope album to be honest, but didn't make the cut

things fall apart - 5/5 classic album, u can just press play and let it ride front to back, unlike their other projects aside from and then you shoot your cousin. both albums are gritty and have tracks that bang hard, keepin it 200 and then some!!

phrenology - too many fillers

the tipping point - has like 2 or 3 killer tracks, that's about it

game theory - has a few dope cuts, but fillers again

how i got over - not a bad album, didn't have enuf strong tracks to be a contender

undun - yeah the hits were nice, album was too long with weird tracks in it

and then you shoot your cousin - another perfect album, even better than things fall apart. no weak tracks and no filler. Was actually listening to it today while I was working out, and it kept me motivated and energetic from the beats and raps!

thoughts?

how i got over is probably my fav roots album, if you can ignore/delete the last two tracks.

which, btw, weren't on the original tracklist, and my theory is the label made them add those, as well as all the interludes, because the album was way too short with the OG tracklist.

i love the live feel of do you want more. there's no album in hip hop that sounds like it. not even in the roots catalog.

do you want more is incredible 88, but in order for this thread to work i had to pick their most recognizable classic album and the album that fans shit on the most. the roots just have too many great albums lol.


did you guys notice how i said undun was too long even though it's the roots shortest album by far?

is literally this

"ROTTIN RASCALZ is better than LIQUID SWORDS... it's simple man, them each back to back and u will see... beatwise first of all... ROTTIN RASCALZ is untouchable... LIQUID SWORDS does have it's shining moments, but dips here and there from a production standpoint.. Lyrically LIQUID SWORDS might be better, but ROTTIN RASCALZ has that energy that just cant be turned down! The two MC's work well together and that's of KAYGEE's best production! I'm sure u will get a more emotional rush from ROTTIN as apposed to LIQUID SWORDS.. better skits, better interludes, each track back to back is steller! u will feel it more! Music is emotion transmitted into sound... "

except i replaced rottin rascalz with and then you shoot your cousin. i just copied and pasted it. i can't help but feel a little insulted by this lol.

the roots come alive?

it's definitely the best one i can think of. plus it came out in 1999 when there was this stigma that hip hop acts were horrible live. probably one of the best live albums ever, not just for hip hop.

Numbers don't lie but people do
Lupe has outsold the roots since he's came out
If Lupe came out in the early 90s he would of went 10x platinum

Honestly, every Roots album is worth buying except for Game Theory, imo. but so many people love Game Theory so idk.

they are the best.
