    Don't Say Nuthin' wasn't a Roots track, it was Black Thought over Scott Storch production.......

    I have listened to all of their albums... and they're just not as consistent to me post-TFA... they still got dope tracks here and there... but their first 3 major label albums were all classics... Do You Want More??!!, Illadelph Halflife and Things Fall Apart... after that, Tipping Point is their highest point to me... I didn't like How I Got Over at all, so I was pretty much done after that.

    I bet you don't like their first 3, though... different sensibilities.

    They just went into a different direction after Things Fall Apart... and I'm not saying their post-millennial work is all bad, because it's not... it just not as consistent as their '90s work to me... and then I don't like Malik B. not being a regular member anymore.

    I love their later shit... much more than their earlier work actually... I just like the sound...

    my fav album from them is how i got over...

    Game theory is also my shit.

    and that album they put out with John Legend was just amazing.

    I prefer the hardware... I like the artwork... I'm a collector.... I burn songs to make mixes when I'm not thinking about coppin' individual albums... but for my favorite artists, I always cop their CDs or LPs.

    Do You Want More??!!?
    Illadelph Halflife
    Things Fall Apart
    Tipping Point


    And then it's like ehhh after that... with a few songs here and there that I'm feelin'.
