Roots Manuva Appreciation thread.

Recommended Posts

I borrowed "Run come save me" by Roots Manuva off a friend the other day and i was quite blown away by how good it was. Instead of standard hiph hop beats, it's really cruisy and sometimes jumpin breakbeats style shit. And i've heard people say that his voice is shit, but i'm of the opinion that it's one of the most dynamic voices in hip hop.

 

Any thoughts?

Yea Run Come Save me is a fucking great album, the best choon is prolly either Witness "I sit here contented with this cheese on toast, I feel the pain of third world famine, still we count dem blessin's and keep jammin'" or Ital Visions "Ital!!".

I just remember at the Glastonbury festival having not gone to sleep and it nearly being 6:00 am and rolling a ital (pure) spliff and shouting "Ital!!!"

-Big up my bredrin KWAYSE for the memory dem.

if your feeling roots, try looking into stuff by fallacy and fusion.
