samples: the roots. chocolate covered strawberry smoothie

Samples is yours truly DJ Smoothie T–spinning on my blender blades of steel every “new music release” Tuesday–giving you single servings of ice cold beets mixed with (other) so so fresh delicious fruits and veggies.  Pre and post stength or cardio workout–All I do is blend!  Listen.  Enjoy.  Sample.


Song, Will to Power | Artist, The Roots | Album, Undun | Genre, Hip Hop

If I had to describe The Roots’ latest album undun in one word it would have to be captivating.  Though it’s the group’s thirteenth album, its’ their first concept album.  It beautifully tells the story of  murdered hustler Redford Stephens in such a artistically compelling manner that I seriously can’t stop reading it listening to it over and over again.  Rapper Black Thought’s lyricism–as usual– is dope!  Picking one track to share with you was quite a daunting task since I’m loving the disc in it’s entirety.   I finally settled on one of the very short orchestral instrumentals–Will to Power–as it illustrates how the groups musical genius and always conscious roots extend far deeper than the Hip Hop genre.


Chocolate covered strawberries?  Yum!  As a Designer Whey  pre-workout smoothie?  Count me in.  I’m done..or as the Roots’ would say..I’m  undun!
