the album 'undun' by the roots.
this is the sgt.pepper of hip hop,groundbreaking.
the roots are not your run-of-the-mill 'gangsta' hip hop act,they are real musicians,been together many years,14 or 15 albums each one a progressive work of art.
seen them live 5 times(they dont get over here often) the live show is superb.lots of vids on you tube,check them out,you will be surprised.
I know i'm an old bloke but trust me,I bought hip hop before it was even called hip hop!!
