@TheRoots New Album “…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin” Release Date

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The Grammy award winning group, The Roots, possesses a unique sound that synchronizes poetry and story telling featuring a live band. Since 1987, the hip-hop band has achieved such accolades as Best R&B Album at the Grammy’s, Outstanding Duo or Group at the NAACP awards, and a plethora of nominations. The band has worked with everyone from Betty Wright to John Legend. This spring, they are back, releasing a new album titled “…And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.” &TYSYC (shorthand) is slated for a release next week May 19th, and will be similar to their previous album “Undun” by having a conceptual storyline. The concept, however, will be slightly different in that there will be several different characters as opposed to one. The debut single, “When the People Cheer, ” aired on April 7, 2014 on Hot 97.

“…It’s satire, but in that satire it’s an analysis of some of the stereotypes perpetuated in not only the hip-hop community, but in the community. I don’t know if that makes any sense.”

— Black Thought to XXL, in February 2014.

“We created some of these characters that we kind of see. We as artists, musicians, Philadelphians, New Yorkers, we as black men, we’re familiar with very many of these characters, and we kind of introduce them to the rest of the world in a manner that makes them more easily understood than maybe seeing it.”

Check out the Tracklist Below:

1. “Theme From The Middle Of The Night” (performed by Nina Simone)
