The Roots x ODD FUTURE

I had this long paragraph typed out in my attempt to interpret shit, then i figured fuck it! I'm fascinated, if you understand this word "fascination"...that's my shit. A huge fan of the prolific Black Thought and The Legendary Roots Crew. Check out this short about the The Roots live filmed during their Hennessey Artistry Tour. Many artists were featured on here, you'll see them. This is my school, "The Super MCees" as you'll hear Black Thought explain. The Roots finally got a Grammy nomination for HIGO this year. I think that Grammy went to Eminem? Eh! who cares, I personally think How I Got over is the best album out in a long minute. It's on constant rotation here.

On the flip side if you haven't heard of ODD FUTURE, Wolf Gang, Tyler the Creator or Earl. Get familiar now. You'll be seeing, hearing them soon. They recently performed with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon's Show. They are young, unapologetic, insane like no one could have anticipated this "phenomenon" in Hip hop. Beats, Rhymes are insane. Now the message (sound, lyric and aesthetic) of this new crew from LA begs the question "what the fuck?" I have no "Die Antwoord" just a fascination with the attitude, the freedom, mindset and indeed foresee an ODD FUTURE. This shit is pure genius, when I imagine it blowing up in SA i think of our society, the rural, small town, township, suburban, urban. Ooooooooh! the future is now.
Shout out to democracy and!


Big ups to my dude @BillyxBluntz.
