“The Next Movement”The Roots

This week, it's Greg's turn to take a trip to the desert island jukebox and play a song he can't live without. He celebrates the 20th anniversary of The Roots' album Things Fall Apart by picking "The Next Movement." Greg notes that the late '90s/early 2000s were a golden era for hip hop, combining conscious rappers like Common and Black Thought with singers like Erykah Badu and D'Angelo. This blend is brilliantly on display throughout Things Fall Apart, and particularly on the track“The Next Movement.”Greg highlights lyrics that recognize the significance and rising popularity of black culture, and notes that every track on this record is solid as ever today.
