The new Roots single is amazing!

Rising Down, their last album, was a great release. However, it was a bit darker than Roots fans are used to. With the new single "How I Got Over" (also the title track) from their upcoming album, The Roots demonstrate that they've still got that funky style, they just had to put it on the shelf for a little bit to get a real message across.

Pretty solid video on this one. Black Thought strolls through town, while ?uestlove plays chess on the street.

This track seems to combine the best of both worlds -- it's got the gritty, somewhat dark honesty of the last album, with the new and improved groove that we've come to love.

Dig it.
