Gilles Peterson // Must Have Album // #183

January 22, 2015

Each week, we will be sharing the top 200 Albums that every Gilles Peterson fan should have. The album this week is Do You Want More?!!!??! by The Roots.

January 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of The Roots official major-label debut album, do you want more?!!!??! (there is a discrepancy as to whether the release date was January 10th or January 17th). The album marked a shift in how Hip-Hop sounded at the time. While Stetsasonic were known as a Hip-Hop band, The Roots took that distinction to a different level with a full band of talented musicians anchored by Quest Love on the drums and two MCs in Black Thought and Malik B.
