The Roots - How I Got Over (2010)

1.. Walk Alone (Truck North, Porn, Dice Raw, Mercedes Martinez)
2. Dear God 2.0 (Jim James, MOF)
3. Radio Daze (Blu, Porn, Dice Raw, Mercedes Martinez)
4. Now Or Never (Phonte Coleman, Dice Raw)
5. How I Got Over (Dice Raw)
6. The Day (Blu, Phonte Coleman, Patty Crash)
7. Right On (Joanna Newsom, Sugar Tongue Slim)
8. Doin It Again (John Legend)
9. The Fire (John Legend, Rick Friedrich)

Notice the sampling of the Jim James and Joanna Newsom. This album has unbelievable flow and I just can't get enough of it. It is their most cohesive album to date, and many of the songs can only be described as powerful. I'll say it's the best rap/hip-hop album of the year, since it's now the time of year to make bold music claims like that.
