Slime & Reason
2008 release, the follow-up to 2006's Alternately Deep from the London-based rapper. Roots (AKA Rodney Smith) has built a solid reputation as one of the best Hip Hop artists in the UK, mainly through his ability to embrace many different styles while maintaining a high standard of lyrical content and delivery. With more focus on Electronics and Dub than his previous effort, which employed a live band feel, this is another example of the artist's diversity. Singles include 'Buff Nuff'. Big Dada.
