Rising Down – 4/29/08

A release date for the eighth album for Philadelphia hip hop group, The Roots, has been released. Rising Down will feature contributions from Mos Def, Styles P, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and long time friends Malik B. and Dice Raw. Reportedly, Lupe Fiasco, Common and Q-Tip are also slated to be on the album but no word on whether or not they will make the final cut. If all of the above stated artists do make appearances on the album, then it will no doubt be a front runner for hip hop album of the year. Stay tuned for more information when it becomes available. Sharing the same release date as Kidz In The Hall’s The In Crowd, I wonder which album will be more received by the public? My bets are on the hometown favorites, the legendary Roots crew.


Info: Hip Hop DX

    I have been anticipating The Roots’ new release, and as expected, they did not disappoint. This is an amazingly talented group of brothers, proving Hip Hop is not dead. Although my favorites are still ‘Do You Want More” and “Illadelph Halflife’, ‘Rising Down’ is still a must-have.
