Here is the first single, “How I Got Over”, from their October street date album of the same name:
“Out in the streets where I grew up,
first thing they teach you is not to give a fuck
That type of thinking can get you nowhere
Someone has to care”
We all know that the Roots are the only reason that Jimmy Fallon has any cred. I know I stopped watching that show a second and a half ago. For the stalker-like followers of “The Roots”, you’ve probably been listening to the live version since they first debuted it on the show about 6 weeks ago (I think). This is the studio version. The artistry of this song is made to be played live.
