The Roots’ Black Thought Drops 75 Bars on Leaked Track
After much buzz, it looks as if the legendary Roots crew are moving closer to delivering their 10th album, dubbed ‘Rising Down.’
Beginning with an appropriate drum roll and solo, a track titled ‘Black’s Reconstruction’ — also referred to as ’75 Bars (Black’s Reconstruction)’ — has been leaked onto the Internet. The song features the Roots’ frontman, Black Thought, spitting pure fire on the chorus-less, bridge-less track.
‘Rising Down’ is set to include collaborations with some of the usual suspects, such as Common, Talib Kweli and Mos Def, with surprise appearances by Lupe Fiasco, Styles P and Fall Out Boy‘s Patrick Stump.
The Philadelphia-based hip-hop band is scheduled to release ‘Rising Down’ on April 29.
