The Roots: ...and then you shoot your cousin
Buy! - (Def Jam)
The 11th studio album from the veteran hip hop group (and The Tonight Show house band) is a typically adventurous and uncompromising set with a dark, theatrical, stripped-down sound steeped in ‘60s avant-soul and jazz, combining dread-filled atmospherics with poignant, hard-hitting lyrics revolving around poverty, racism, oppression, violence and hip hop culture. 5/23/2014 - Don Yates
