Unified Front :: Third Root’s ‘Soul Force’ And Its All-Star Lineup

a1202663568_10

Dig it… Third Root and Adrian Quesada collaborate on what would already be a banger on its own.  Reinforcements are then called in, in the form of Da’Shade MoonbeamRiders Against The Storm (RAS)Bavu Blakes and Vocab.  Bars upon bars, all spitting on the knowledge tip.  Soul Force is a monster of a song… not since the days of We’re All In The Same Gang or Self-Destruction has there been a collaborative effort this deep and meaningful.  Certainly worth the $0.99 price tag.  Here’s to hoping all parties involved can find the time to make a video out of this, because songs this strong deserve visual accompaniment.

Broadcast News :: Third Root & Reggie Coby’s ‘Reflection Of The Times’ Visualized

Growing up in the AustinSan Antonio corridor is a beautiful thing as a music fan.  Reflection of the Times, the lead single off of San Antonio-based hip hop outfit Third Root‘s upcoming release Libertad is a perfect example of that synergy.  The album is produced by Austin legend (and old friend) Adrian Quesada, and it features the guest vocal stylings of Reggie Coby.  The track in itself is exactly what it’s advertised as… vocalized thoughts on how the more things change, the more they stay they same, and why we cannot accept that.  Share this far and wide.

Righteous, ‘Cause :: The ‘Michelle Alexander’ Remix

 

from the digital desk of Third Root:

‘Even though some of the content of this remix speaks critically to current events, the ideas and conversations that went into producing and writing this song took place before the Ferguson, Garner, and Brooklyn tragedies.  The insight of the poets involved is honest, revolutionary, and seemingly prophetic.  This remix is a FREE download.  The original version of Michelle Alexander was inspired by Alexander‘s book The New Jim Crow and appears on Third Root and Greg G‘s 2014 album Revolutionary Theme Music.’
