in anticipation of “Rising Down”

Rising Down is the title for The Roots upcoming album (release date is April 29, 2008). The title, like nearly all of their previous albums, is a reference to a book, this time its Rising Up and Rising Down: Some Thoughts on violence, freedom and urgent means, by William T. Vollmann. The link there is to a Powell’s review.

Anyways, I’m not sure that this was seen by many people, but its a trilogy video of the Roots work from their last album, Game Theory…they are all excellent but the last one is my favorite.

also, some other great videos done by The Roots…

you got me:

the seed:

silent treatment:

what they do:

and the original classic, pass the popcorn:
