Releases of “Lazy Afternoon (Alternate Version)” and “In Your Dreams (I’m Every MC)” are forthcoming.
Released January 17, 1995, Do You Want More?!!!??! is the second studio album and major-label debut from the original The Roots crew, including Scott Storch. Released to critical acclaim, the Chicago Tribune wrote that the album is “an impressive display of skills, intelligently arranged and performed.”
Throughout Do You Want More?!!!??! the collective’s lyricism is quick-witted and razor-sharp. The project showed The Roots experimenting with genre in a way that labeled them as one of the most creative acts in hip-hop thanks to their fusion of live instrumentation and jazz into their underground hip-hop sound.
Do You Want More?!!!??! will be available on March 12 and can be pre-ordered here
