The Roots' new album, 'How I Got Over', is dope sauce. So is this new video. Can't wait for the John Legend/Roots collabo album. Unstoppable.

Aight, so this is some shit right here.
Rozay isn't the greatest artist. Yeah he's got some cool shit, but as an MC he's nothing special. That said, I don't really get all the hype leading up to his latest LP, 'Teflon Don', but this leak caught my attention, both for the title and the feature artist.
As much as Jay is slippin' these days, I HAD to hear what he had to say on a joint titled 'Free Mason', particularly after all the talk online about Jay's inclinations towards being part of the Illuminati (something I'm yet to make up my mind on). Oh and John Legend makes a DOPE cameo too.
I actually really like Jay's verse here. He addresses the rumours briefly here ('Bitch I said that I'm amazing, not a mason'), but I think I need to hear it a few more times. What y'all think?
"The latest release from the Levi's Pioneer Sessions features a collabo from The Roots and John Legend. "Levi's Pioneer Sessions 2010 Revival Recordings bring together today's pioneering musicians to re-craft the classic songs that inspired their sound." The Roots and John Legend give us a stirring rendition of Ernie Hines' "Our Generation." This track will also appear on JL and The Roots' upcoming collabo album, Wake Up, which is set to drop September 21st. Check after the jump for a behind the scenes look at the song's creation."
Aight, so I'm mainly blogging this out of spite. Fuck. Look at this line up. Look at it.
THIS is part of the reason The Movement Fam is moving to North America. Shit like this just doesn't happen down here. Goddamnit. Such an eclectic line up, it'd be worth every damn cent. Check it out and fume with me in a silent yet jealous rage...
