Me and my producer JoeLogic put this together in celebration of the 15 year anniversary of The Roots “Things Fall Apart” album. Logic flipped a couple sections of beats solely from the TFA album and I provided the rhymes. Being an MC from Philly I am inspired by The Roots’ story and the heights they have reached in their careers. Philly is proud. It’s an honor to be able to celebrate their legacy. #nicethings
