    I guess if you are a “real” hip hop fan and know “good music”.Then you are expected to root for the underdogs and support the Roots. But honestly I’ve heard all of their albums and their is always 2-3 bangers and the rest is trash.

    Yep I said it most of the songs on a Roots album are trash.

    I will say that Quest is a fucking genius and is my favorite drummer period. He’s also an amazing producer.
