New Video: The Roots “How I Got Over”

[vodpod id=Groupvideo.3538795&w=425&h=350&fv=] Is that a cassette? Let’s go back to the hood for Black Thought’s black hoodie rap. The imagery is prettier than a Spike Lee flick, but as smart as I am I still don’t know what’s goin’ on here. I need a lifeline. Ahmir, holla at me, man!
