The Roots Game Theory on 2LP

Formed in 1987, in Philadelphia, PA, the legendary Roots Crew, consists of Black Thought (MC), Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson (drums), Kamal Gray (electronic keyboards), F. Knuckles (percussion), Captain Kirk Douglas (electronic guitar), Damon Bryson (sousaphone) and James Poyser (electronic keyboard). The collective has become one of most respected hip-hop acts in the business and one of the greatest live groups around, currently residing as the official house band of The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

2006's Grammy nonimated Game Theory is The Roots' dark and socially conscious seventh full-length LP and first for Def Jam which introduced shades of synth and electronica to their already progressive sound. The album references political rap heroes Public Enemy's "Don't Believe The Hype" on the lead track and samples such artists as Sly and the Family Stone ("Life of Fortune and Fame"),  Kool & The Gang ("Jungle Boogie"), The Ohio Players ("Ecstasy"), The Jackson 5 ("All I Do Is Think Of You") and Radiohead ("You and Whose Army?") throughout. Home to the singles "Don't Feel Right" and "In the Music"

"In this day and age, I'm kind of noticing that nobody in urban music really has the balls to just stop partying for one second... I mean, partying is good and whatnot, and it's cool to get down, but I really think that 2006 called for a very serious record. This ain't the Debbie Downer record, or the political, save-the-world record, but this is definitely not the MC-based, battle-themed album that the Roots have been known for. This is our most serious record to date." - Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson
