The Roots Debut New Single
Philadelphia hip-hoppers, The Roots, will be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC), April 21, when they debut their new single, "Don't Say Nothin'" from their seventh album, The Tipping Point.
This full-length followup to The Roots' grammy- nominated Phrenology comes out June 29 on Geffen Records.
The Tipping Point, says Roots drummer Ahmir Thompson, "is the sum of our six records and our 12 years as a band. Most of our album titles are chosen to reflect on the mood of where the group is and we feel as though this album is our biggest step."
The album's title is also a reference to Malcolm Gladwell's book on the critical moments that touch off social phenomena.
Also appearing on the record are comedian Dave Chapelle, Indie hip-hop artists Jean Grae, Martin Luther and Devin The Dude and guitarist CaptainKirk Douglas.
