19 years old today. #IlladelphHalflife

Philly is cool but the Phillips are cooler. @elenamphillips @cldphil #illadelphhalflife

In 1996 w our 3rd album #IlladelphHalflife we decided to be our own sampling source and jam in the day and sample ourselves at night. 20 years later we are working on our 17th album entitled #Endgame....& we startin all over again. Here the gawd @StroElliot is breaking out his get busy tools and making ish sound tight!

On this day in 1996, The Roots released their third album, "Illadelph Halflife." Now spinning: What They Do (ft. Raphael Saadiq) 🔥🔥 #TheRoots #IlladelphHalflife #WhatTheyDo

Sept 24th 1996 our 3rd album #IlladelphHalflife was released. This was our "we WILL not be ignored" album. The day I read that @@@@1/2 review in @TheSource I cried in the bathroom of #TheWetlands. The anxiety & relief. From busking in 92. To trying to get a deal in 93. To fending for ourselves in 94. To praying we don't drown in 95----but being determined to get that respect --took 3 attempts but man. The incense & candle crowd of Organix was scratching their heads when #DYWM came out 2 years later sounding a lil more hip hop & less poetry n jazz. So imagine everyone's reaction when we turned our backs on the Do You Want More supporters & churned out a super lyrical assault. We had something to prove and Philly had something to prove. As I discovered last year the fire at the universal vaults in 2006 destroyed our masters, our dats, our half inch mixes, even our videos (Google Universal Fire Vaults--they lost movies/music/archives---everything)---I had grand plans to do some crazy deluxe extra songs treats but----*sigh* 5 songs are missing. So thank god for streaming culture and the deal we struck in 2004. It's still up there in its original glory (I'm not mad at the mixes, it still holds up) *raising a toast* to my 3rd kid: I.H. Happy 21st

So now that we’ve had a day to let @blackthought’s epic ten minute freestyle sink in, what’s your favorite quotable? Too many to mention is a fair response, but here’s a few lines that are just too ill:

“I never thought you would give me a reason to do this, Cain and Abel, Jesus and Judas/Caesar and Brutus, I see intruders will vert your eyes, I told you keep out of the hood…circumcise”

“I barbwire my wrist, and let it fill the page”

“Maybe I’m the new Rakim, maybe I’m Fab Pharoah/Undergarments or armor by my intimate apparel”

“Pre-Kardashian Kanye, my rhyme play immaculate/Same cadence as D.O.C. pre-accident”

“How much more CB4 can we afford? It's like a Sharia law on my Cherie Amour”

“What was on the wall, that depends on what you call art, I’m a say 300k ain’t even in the ballpark/I charge more just for awkward small talk.”

“My pen is Henry Kissinger, Buzz Bissinger”

“You in the residency of the one they call King Dada, Ali Baba, the talented Mr. Trotter, Inside of my right palm, the mark of the stigmata/Big Poppa, wig chopper, emperor Jaffe Joffer mofucka, I’m stronger than the coffee out in Kafa”

I'm at a level of intelligence you can't define, Einstein, Shakespeare, Voltaire, Tesla/Recording artist slash psychology professor”

If this wasn’t the best freestyle ever recorded, please let us know what is! #blackthought #legendary #freestyle #classicrap #topfive #deadoralive #superrappin #bars #organix #doyouwantmore #illadelphhalflife #thingsfallapart #phrenology #thetippingpoint #gametheorty #risingdown #howigotover #undun #andthenyoushootyourcousin #endgame #freestyle087💎

*NSFW* 1998 was ONE of the best years in the history of hip-hop thanks to X and Jay. What's the best year of hip-hop you ask? 1996. #longlivehiphop #reasonabledoubt #itwaswritten #makaveli #alleyesonme #ATLiens #hellonearth #ridindirty #ironman #gettinit #thedoggfather #icecreamman #thehallofgame #thecoming #illadelphhalflife #thescore

Know Your Roots... @theroots @blackthought
Arguably the best Hip Hop LP I’ve ever heard. Helped me get through a lot in my life. Even during the making of Tenants

" They use the simple back and forth the same
Old rhythm that's plain
I'd rather UltraMagnetize your brain
It's the hip-hop purist, that leave you lost like a tourist

Philly is cool but the Phillips are cooler. @elenamphillips @cldphil #illadelphhalflife

Released in September 1996, the third album from the Roots. I’m a little undecided if this or ‘Things fall apart’ is my favourite Roots album although the latter does play the part of a perfect sequel to this. For this album they switched it up, they incorporated samples into the live instrumentation and it gave it a more authentic feel than previous releases with Black Thought and Malik B also stepping up their rhyming skills. The now iconic ‘Clones’ led the way as the first single, an all it cypher with Dice Raw and M.A.R.S. Other guests only were selected perfectly to complement the overall feel of the album with Raphael Saddiq on ‘What they do’ Common on ‘UNIverse at war’ and Q-Tip on ‘Ital(the universal side)’. One of my favourite tracks is the second single ‘Concerto of the desperado’, an opera singer is interwoven with a mystical sample for Black Thought to rap over, this one is often underrated.

Crazy to think this was over a year ago already (the week after the 1st Murder the Beat cypher at Marsten House). Word on the street is that the next 2 cypher rounds might drop before new years! 🙏 #tbt #undefinedelementz #ekspan #newalbum #blurrynocturnes #comingsoon .. @Regrann from @ekspanhiphop - My attempt at this week's absolutely insane edition of #murderthebeat ....... "still on that 1 year later, check it now we in the Cypher shit / back up in the lab, and here right back to my McGyver tricks / sleight of hand, turning a poison pen into a violent fist / fools think they got it poppin' cause they swallow Flintstone vitamins / wallowing in your sorrow, time to slit your wrist to Violet Femmes / while the world's smallest violin divides the whiney mice from men / some History of Violence shit, Ekspan or Viggo Mortensen / think you got it planned and figured out, but don't know the secret origin / defeat you from a fortress, evil Sorcerer's Apprentice / feeling fully fucking stoked when fiends find my flow offensive / find your care intensive, triggered landmines from the trenches / playing Simon says relentless, til you Die Hard with a Vengeance / better try harder in the afterlife, don't clone another act to bite / or you'll find a holy ghost explode your swollen dome with a Magnum Light" ✌ @cyphercircuit #cyphercircuit #represent #theroots #clones #illadelphhalflife #philly #1yearlaternowweinthecypher #hiphop #undergroundhiphop #hiphopculture #90shiphop #classic #realshit #boombap #rap #bars #whogotflow #ekspan #jabberjive #4barfriday #thereturnofhiphop #cyphercenter #grimeyshit - #regrann

This is why the expectations are as high as they are. Because of this. #lyrics #production #fullalbum #theroots #illadelphhalflife

"Who can stop the music running through these veins? Infinitely go against the grain. That's why my motto is to... (Never do what they do)."

Had to whip up more Fire Cider this new moon! People really seem to be enjoying this product. @honeywhistleboutique Is only using 8oz bottles from now on so you get twice as much in each bottle. I have to point out that I have all of my favorite things out on the counter in this picture: beeswax candles; essential oils; our "peace in medicine" lighter; and @theroots "Game Theory" bumbin through the jam box. It's the little things that make medicine the most potent. Reminiscing bout the days I lived in Philly and bringing all that funky, soulful love into the medicine. •
