    Just a lil background info:

    The Tipping Point is actually a book, Im guessing that the roots named the album after. Check it out, its a good read. Basically its about cause and effect with trends; whether fashion, drug addiction, even certain diseases and suicide.

    I heard they sample someone getting stomped to death on one of the tracks. Any truth to this?

    its good, but its definately not as good as things fall apart. they do a lot more sampling than they have in the past, which kind of sucks if your someone like myself who digs the fact that they use thier own instruments. the cd lacks any truly catchy beats , but it definately has its moments. as far as good tracks Why is good lyrically but the hook is a bit too boys 2 men for me. dont say nothign is good. star is cool in a rap band covering a funk song kind of way. stay cool is good. im sure there are more but im tired of typing. overall worth picking up if you a fan.
