The Roots album "Rising Down"
The Legendary Roots Crew has dropped their 8th studio album, "Rising Down". Perhaps the most consistent music artist of the last 15 years, once again the Legendary drop a good album.
Several videos have been dropped on OnSmash, all apparently directed by this Filipino director Rik Cordero. Questlove said he took the budget to make 1 traditional music video, & instead made several videos using Cordero, who specializes in making good videos while using lower-cost equipment/technology. Questo said this is the future of music videos, making low cost videos to put on internet sites like OnSmash. Makes sense to me, since the traditional music video channels like MTV don't show many videos anymore anyways, they're mainly reality TV channels now.
