The best hip-hop group coming out of Illadelph. It originated with Black Thought and ?uestLove. Malik B., Kamal, Hub, and Rahzel were added to the group later on. Malik B. is no longer apart of the group due to drug problems. They are succesful in making commercial tracks while staying away from the mainstream rap you hear nowadays.

Get the The Roots mug.
The most amazing, groundbreaking, & innovative band in Hip-Hop today. One of the only groups of all Genre's that bless the fans with an even better album then the last with each new release. The band evolves and innovates every step of the way.
The band's latest release Game theory is the 7th release and the best one yet. For true fans of the group the flava' at times seems to touch back on Things Fall Apart and even Organix while maintaining a newer, never attempted direction all at once. The album is seamless. One can literally see the track change, however, you cannot HEAR it. Its flow eminates genius. One might compare its transitions and non-stop streaming to that of Dark Side of The Moon.
While The Roots remain the most under-rated band in hip-hop today, all fans agree: There Is no other Hip Hop act out there bringin it like this.
B-boy 1: Yo' sun you got dat' new Roots joint?
B-Boy 2: Word, sun.
B-Boy 1: Yo, spin dat shit B!
B-Girl : (to busy throwin' down to talk)

xPJx : The Roots Crew is The Illest!
Black Thought : No Doubt.

Uhm... They're not much. Just the greatest god damned hip-hop group of the 90s. I'm listening to "Things Fall Apart" right now, and I'm seriously in awe at how much better this is than any other rap album that's ever been released in the history of music.
Person A: Yo sunnn! I jus kawpped fiddy's nu owl bum 2day. Wut ju git wit yo munny sun?

Person B: Something that's actually worth listening to. I bought an album by "The Roots".

Person A: Aint nobody wunna heer dat shyt sun. put dat shyt away.

Person B: Listen to this.

Person A: Damn, I can't believe I waisted 4 years of my life lsitening to that 50 Cent trash when I could've been indulging my brain in intelligent hip-hop like this. I'm even using proper grammar now.

In America it means cheering, in Australia it means fucking.
Jim Courier, the American tennis player, was commenting on a match for Australian television. A female player was close to victory on court, while the players for the next match wanted her to close out the match so they could get on court. Courier, "There's two guys in the locker room rooting loudly for her."
