Monday Throwback: The Roots - Act Too (Love of my Life) ft. Common
This might be one of my favorite hip hop songs of all time. And I say that meaning among my top 50 or so. Any true hip hop fan knows Things Fall Apart is a phenomenal album, but I guarantee this is one of the most overlooked tracks on it because of better-known songs like "Adrenaline" and "You Got Me (ft. Eryka Badu)." What you have here is a chilled out beat with great flow by Black Thought and special guest Common. It's about their love for the genre and it's flawless.
This week is off to a sub-par start; hopefully listening to the legendary Roots crew brightens up your day.
