Music Video of the Week General Style 6 Comments

JKISSI : This week we give you one of my favorite songs from the Roots.  These guys have been doing it for so long and keeping it real, being one of the few hiphop bands with this status. The jazzy feel they give just attracts me to their music every single time. The bass chords on here are so simple , but fits the song with a perfectly. Can’t forget about Erykah Badu giving the song a  melodic chorus which just grabs you in, and Eve also spits conversely with Black thought in certain parts,but no appearance in the video. ( Thanks Reggie )This is a tribute to the Roots since they’re putting touring on hold right now to be a late night house band for Jimmy Fallon. I cant say this is too bad, maybe it would give them some more exposure to the mainstream audiences who are still unaware.

The Roots f/ Erykah Badu – You Got Me


Have something to say?
