SingingFool.com - The Roots - What They Do - Music Video
I had posted this song a few weeks back as the Monday Throwback. It remains one of my top 5 favorite Roots songs. After further research, however, it turns out the video I shared was not the original one. Vevo, which is now a powerhouse for music videos on YouTube (and often censors the videos or doesn't post the 100% original versions), took out the subtitles which essentially were the whole point of the video. The song/video is talking about all the cliches in hip hop and the subtitles are used to express that. Now it all makes sense!
