The Roots' New Album

It's good to see originality in music, especially in hip-hop, and there's plenty of that in the cover to the upcoming Rising Down by The Roots:



I'd love to get that on a T-shirt.

I've never been a fan of Black Thought, the MC for The Roots, but I do love the title track that just leaked. It has Mos Def doing some of his best and most cohesive rhyming in years (without breaking into his Ben Harper-esque rock and roll alter ego) and has a nice bluesy beat on the part of drumming beast ?uestlove.
