THE ROOTS – Hip Hop Grooves

The Roots Ahmir Thompson Questlove Drumming

The Roots were one of the first bands to draw me into hip hop. Still one of my all time favourite acts. Here’s a selection of grooves taken from the “Things Fall Apart” album. The track “Without a Doubt” is sampled from a Schoolly D track, which was also sourced from Wild Magnolias (Zigaboo Modeliste) and Melvin Bliss. I dig the sixteenth note triplets in “Aint Sayin’ Nothin”. It’s all in the feel. Swing the sixteenth note subdivisions.
