The Roots' eighth studio album, Rising Down, was released on April 29, 2008, the 16-year anniversary of the Los Angeles riots of 1992. In the weeks before the album's release, the original first single "Birthday Girl", a radio-friendly collaboration with Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump was removed from the album reportedly because it didn't fit in with the album's tone. The album, meant to raise awareness and funds in support of the AIDS epidemic in relation to the African American community, was heralded as "Album of the Year" by Time magazine. They have been highly involved in many other Red Hot Organization productions, including the 1998 album Red Hot + Rhapsody and the 2001 album Red Hot + Indigo, a tribute to Duke Ellington.

Welcome to the first in our new series of roundups highlighting the best new songs of each month. January is often a slow time for releases, as labels and artists come off the holidays and start to tease bigger projects on the horizon. But the first month of this year still delivered plenty of memorable and surprising tracks.
I love all the songs in this album.
A short album in length, this album is no less thought-provoking than anything else they had done previously. Maybe not as acclaimed as previous efforts, this is still better than most of this era’s music and is more than worth the rotation. In any event, this album was a testament to The Roots once again pushing boundaries, delivering another compelling album worthy of the acclaim it received. The album that started the early buzz about the Philly giants. A near flawless album, this album was musically as dense as anything we heard up til then. Cuts like False Media, Clock With No Hands and the elegant Dilla tribute Can’t Stop This help make this album a definite Roots classic and became the new standard of socio-conscious Hip Hop for the group.
