New Song from The Roots + Album Details

Legendary hip-hop group The Roots have released a new song, titled 'When The People Cheer'. The track comes from their new CD, which is scheduled to be released on May 13th. We love the album title; And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.  Black Thought, frontman of The Roots, stated that this is "another concept album" and had this to say about lyrical content:

It’s not just about just one kind of character. We create quite a few different characters in this record. It’s satire, but in that satire it’s an analysis of some of the stereotypes perpetuated in not only the hip-hop community, but in the community.
