Black Thought & ?uestlove Talk New Roots LP

blame it on Shake June 6, 2011

During a convo with Billboard, Thought and ?uest reveal some details about the Legendary Roots Crew’s follow up to 2010’s How I Got Over. A concept album with orchestral arrangements…

“This is going to be our first full-fledged narrative concept album. It’s going to be a challenge to figure out how to get from point A to B — or in this case, point B to point A and have it seem natural… It’s going to be heavy on sort of orchestral chamber music with harder beats in it.”- ?uest

Black Thought added that conceptually, the album will stem from the “same idea” as How I Got Over, but “kind of flipped. Instead of from dark to light, it’s an album that goes from light to dark”.

Black says that in a perfect world the album would come out this November, but he thinks a 2012 release is more likely.
