Two weeks ago, DJBooth featured The Roots’ new track Rising Down. Assisted by Mos Def, Styles P, and Dice Raw, the song set the tone for the group’s upcoming eighth album of the same name, a musical depiction of how our world’s culture is a modern-day Pandora’s box. In Greek mythology, however, opening Pandora’s box doesn’t come with hope; a feeling the septet believes in and will lead to the people Rising Up. Backing up lead MC Black Thought‘s optimism are fellow lyricist (and new Interscope signee) Wale and Def Jam‘s favorite soulful songbird, Chrisette Michele. Rising Up is set to be the final track on Rising Down, which hits stores and online retailers April 29.
