The Tipping Point

The Tipping Point by hip-hop heroes, the Roots, takes its name from the Malcolm Gladwell book of the same name. The book tries to explain the knock-on effects of small social changes. The Roots build on the themes to rapping about politics and society, bringing funk, jazz and pop influences into their sound. The Tipping Point was originally released in 2004 as the follow-up to Phrenology.

The Roots
Undun

Undone by The Roots was their 10th album. It’s a concept album telling the story of the fictional Redford Stevens and his struggle through poverty and his tragic death, starting at the end and working backwards. It was Grammy nominated for Best Rap Album and praised by critics. You don’t need me to tell you that last bit though, do you? We all know The Roots are cool. Reissue LP on Def Jam.

The Roots
Things Fall Apart

One of the first hip hop acts to operate as a fully-fledged band, The Roots combine live instrumentation and percussion with traditional sampling elements and the dense prose of Black Thought. Their fourth album is a stone-cold classic of hip hop where jazzy beats collide with politically conscious wordplay. It includes energetic numbers such as 'Dynamite!', 'Step Into The Relm', and 'You Got Me' which features fellow Soulquarian Erykah Badu. Their breakthrough earned them a Grammy nomination, but they unfortunately lost out to Eminem on the night.
