The Roots Release ‘Feel It (You Got It)’ With Tish Hyman
The Philadelphia band has been busy over the past few years as the in-house band on Jimmy Fallon. While it’s been incredible to hear them back up some incredible artists during their live performances, hip hop fans have been hoping for new music and thankfully, they’ve delivered.
Today, they unleashed their latest single, “Feel It (You Got It)” with Tish Hyman. Bringing the live instruments altogether, The Roots and Tish Hyman deliver and upbeat, vibrant track that continues to prove that Black Thought is one of the most fierce rappers still standing in the game today.
The Roots have been teasing the release of End Game which is supposed to serve as the follow-up to 2014’s …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.
Theorize your game, it’s difficult to roll a double
The struggle ain’t right up in ya face, it’s more subtle
But it’s still coming across like the bridge and tunnel vision
I try to school these bucks, but they don’t wanna listen
That’s the reason the system making this paper from the prison
And that’s the reason we living where they don’t wanna visit
Where the dope slangin’ keep swangin’ like Sonny Liston
The money missing and there’s mouths to feed
Get the brain kicking, thinking of a thousand things
Remember back in the days, when the kitchen had eggs
And pancakes, chicken and greens and Kool Aid?
When the refrigerator naked and the cupboard is bare
People got to strip naked, stick ’em up in the air
Was it lies when they told you wasn’t nothing to fear?
Something don’t feel right out here
