From The Square Roots to The Legendary Roots Crew, the Philadelphia hip hop band has always been well deserving of their highly respected status. When I listen to The Roots now, like most artists, their style has changed and I find myself yearning for their older Organix – Illadelph Halflife sound, y’know the soulful stuff. It was also around this time that they were cranking out remixes for others that really added to their quickly growing acclaim. Here is a quick mix I put together for the fans of The Roots who may not be aware of some of these remixes or for those who have heard that they exist but could never locate them. Enjoy!

    the mix from Dj Rahdu in PodOmatic it’s like a short version of the 13 songs in your list? or it’s every track, complete, compiled as one??

    Thanks for sharing. I googled Femi Kuti after that last cut. Dig that one hard.

    Dope Mix. Having a nice Afro-beat Jam from the Legendary Kuti Family is a good look too.
