    Mine, I think, is either Adrenaline or You Got Me. And maybe Guns Are Drawn.

  • my favorite is probably either Seed 2.0 (me and everyone else), the New Movement or Do You Want More

    yeah mine would be Seed 2.0 :) the first one i ever heard by em

  • The Roots - You Got Me

  • I love them all but my favorite would have to be Why (What's Goin On?), just because it starts as a perfect slow rap song, then it turns in to a perfect fast rap song, and it ends at a perfect unique rap song.

    I can agree with that. That's also one of my favorites.

  • Yeah Adrenaline! is one of my favs, but i like Concerto of the Desperado, 100% Dundee and Mellow My Man.

  • Well, I'm a big fan of their lower-tempo'ed material so I'll have to go with Silent Treatment, What They Do, and Mellow My Man also.

    Their live version of You Got Me with Jill Scott on their live album is amazing though.

  • That's hard, cause they have so many great songs. Um. I really like 'Why (What's Going On)' because to me, it's the perfect hip-hop song. The lyrics are off the chain, and Black Thought kills it.

    I would agree with that.

    You Got Me, Love of My Life, 100% Dundee (particularly the version on Come Alive), Star, Guns Are Drawn, Web, Good Music, No Alibi, Push Up Ya Lighter and Silent Treatment are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

    The Lesson PT.1 - fucking awesome tune, definitly the best in my opinion. Clones and dynamite are also a couple of awesome tracks.

    ALL I EVER WANTED WAS TO PICK APART THE DAY, PUT THE PIECES BACK TOGETHER MY WAY

    Oh damn.

    I think my all time favourite is "The Next Movement", I come back to that one a lot. I also love "Adrenaline!", "The Seed (2.0)", and "Rhymes and Ammo/Thirsty".

  • It would have to be Respond/React. I think Thought and Malik B complemented each other perfectly.

    Other than that, I've got too many favourites including:
    What They Do, Star, Pass the Popcorn, The Next Movement, Clock With No Hands, Essaywhuman?!!!??!, The Seed (2.0), Break You Off, Can't Stop This......... I could go on all day.

    ...more magnificent than Lee Van Cleef

    summumabitch, I finally got The Tipping Point, and it is awesome. I'm going to add "I Don't Care" and "Guns are Drawn" to my list. The hook on I Don't Care is to die for.

    Say what you want but for me Star is one of the best, followed by In The Music from the new album.
