The Roots – Do You Want More?!!!??!
Although Stetsasonic preceded their arrival, The Roots turned hip-hop on its head as the premier band representative of the genre. Do You Want More?!!!??! succeeded as an extension of the Native Tongues’ jazz sound merged with the distinct rhyming of the group’s emcees Black Thought and Malik B. “Proceed” reeled in new fans with its call and response hook while “Silent Treatment” did well with the female audience. These songs are still considered amongst the greatest hits in their catalog. Presently seen nightly as Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show band, this was where the ball originally got rolling.
