The Roots – “When The People Cheer” | New Music

Following on from their collaborative long player with musical icon Elvis Costello, The Roots are set to release their 11th studio album …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin on May 13th and today give us the first taster from the new body of work.

“When The People Cheer” is first cut from the respected Hip Hop band’s forthcoming body of work and it’s a somber affair, with verses highlighting the reality of the glamourised trap life whilst the chorus utilises young voices to accent the demographic who are most damaged by the glamorisation. press play below and let us know what you think in the C-Section.

The album drops on May 13 through Def Jam
