We got into a sick Double Shot this week, featuring The Roots new album, "How I Got Over". It was thought that the group wasn't going to be recording after getting the gig as the house band on NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but nevertheless, they came through with their 11th studio album, available today courtesy of OkayPlayer. Dope album throughout, with some quality features from the like of Phonte, John Legend, Blu, Dice Raw and many more. Get this album!
We were then joined Georgia lyricist, 4-Ize. This southern rhyme-sayer has been on the scene for a minute, having collaborated with Ludacris, De La Soul, and Senor Kaos to name few. We discussed his recent and upcoming projects, the video for "Rollin' Like A G", which is due out within a month, and more!
