Jam On It: The Roots – When The People Cheer

Jam On It: The Roots - When The People Cheer

Our favorite purveyors of that ill headnodic from The Illadelph, The legendary Roots crew, have their 11th studio album on the horizon entitled “And Then You Shoot Your Cousin”, which is being lead off with their latest single, “When The People Cheer”.  Enlisting the rhyme stylings of Greg Porn to accompany Black Thought, the track is a gritty route through the stories of personal vices and trials that both wordsmiths convey.  As you listen on, it’s easy to see why Black Thought is arguably rap’s most underrated emcee, what with the ease of which he weaves his tale through a melodic tonic of vivid storytelling and precise flow.  But enough with the words already, click through to listen to the goodness for yourself.


Richard "Reach" Guinto

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
