We posted the footage of them performing this track a while back, now it’s time for the CDQ leak…

The Roots – “How I Got Over”

The Roots can do no wrong in my book. One of the most legendary and criminally underrated groups in Hip Hop history. Fact. This tune, it’s already uploaded on my iPhone – nuff said.

Peace, Love & The Roots

The Roots & Erykah Badu – “I Wanna Be Where You Are” [MJ Tribute] by Speeakz

Over the past 4 days I have been sent a stupid amount of ‘Michael Jackson’ tribute songs. Sadly, most of them have been full of sh*t and sound near terrible. It’s clearly evident those who want to pay homage to MJ, but on the flipside it’s also abundantly obvious who is doing it for the ‘hype’ factor. Shambolic in my opinion.

ANYHOW…This is one of those great ones. The Roots, Erykah Badu – you know what it is! They pay their respect to the King of Pop by performing the Jackson 5 (I stand corrected) his hit “I Wanna Be Where You Are”…

The Roots & Erykah Badu – “I Wanna Be Where You Are” [MJ Tribute]

I think it sounds dope! Funky, modern but still, full of soul. Anything Erykah Badu sings is alright with me. Nicely done.

Today was actually the first time in 4 days I’ve been able to listen to Michael Jackson. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it before. Sad, because erm, I play at least one MJ track on average a day normally (lol). But yea, after hearing Janet Jackson last night at the BET Awards and seeing NeYo and the other acts honour his music – I kinda felt good enough to listen to him again. I’m beginning to think about his life, not his death.

Peace, Love, The Roots & Erykah Badu

P.s I know there have been a couple other great tribute songs/albums going around, it’s just too long to post them all up. The Game’s one is dope.

P.p.s You won’t be seeing any Michael Jackson ‘gossip’ here. So, erm, don’t look for it.

Damn! I’m liking the sound of that! They got the whole James Brown vibe going down! Word. The track should be leaking sometime next week. You know we got you.

“Reality Check” is the first track to leak from the upcoming Jay Stay Paid album, a collection of largly unheard Dilla beats mixed by Pete Rock and executive produced by Ms Yancey. The project will also feature DOOM, Raekwon, Illa J, Blu and M.O.P. This track features Black Thought…

J.Dilla Feat Black Thought – “Reality Check”

…And as you would expect, it’s completly dope! Dilla and Black Thought – can’t really go too wrong?!

Dilla’s mother, who as I mentioned executive produced the new album, said: “This album combines what he did in the beginning of his career, what he did in some of our early hospital stays, which was very deep, and some stuff pulled from old floppy disks & DATs. Its mind blowing…this is like the missing links to Dilla’s legacy”.

Peace, Love & J Dilla
