How I Got Over [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
The Roots' third album for Def Jam and ninth studio set, How I Got Over, is the group's first release since becoming the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Crossing paths with the show's musical guests has fostered collaborations that would not have occurred under any other circumstances. While the album features the likes of My Morning Jacket's Jim James and Monsters of Folk, there are several less surprising contributions from Little Brother's Phonte, Dice Raw, P.O.R.N., John Legend, and Jazzyfatnastees' Mercedes Martinez.

    The only hip-hop group you'll ever need.

    The Roots are just good. There is no other hip-hop group that has the intelligence that Roots have...at least not in last 10 years. If you have not heard their collection of work you cannot call yourself a true hip-hop fan.
