"The Roots - 'Here I Come' (XXL streaming link)"


          

http://xxlmag.com/online/?p=2994

it's posted on XXL magazine's web site as a streaming link, so I assume this is a-okay to post. All the true Roots fans should love this one...

I'm not the biggest fan of dice raw, but his verse on this is quality. He always steps up his game when working with the roots.

Wow. I really wasn't feelin the synth overlay at first, but then it kind of grew on me after a few listens. Bumpin chorus, and hearin' Dice and Malik together again is nostalgia and elation packed into one.

I was also at a show (the one in Montreal) when I first heard this joint. It had a "straight out the gate" type of feel with its high tempo and kick-you-in-the-ass hook. It seemed to come out of nowhere like a blow to the jaw; I was going nuts then and still do when I hear it now. Great track that I'd place alongside the other classic Roots tracks. Straight fire from start to finish and nothing less.

I am loving the drums.
And hearing Malik on something new is a treat.
So far from what I've heard, this album is some FIRE!
