The Roots Crew-"The Fire" (Video)
There are just some emcees out there whose lyrics leaves their mouths with a destination stop at the listener's brain instead of the ears. Black Thought is one of those emcees. When I first heard this song, I rushed to put it on the site off of the first listen. The more I listen to it, the more "The Fire" inside me buildup on every listen. The Roots Crew premiered their second video off of the How I Got Over lp, which was directed by Rik Codero. This video is 'art' and Rik's visual tells a story. You won't see Black Thought or ?uestlove during this video, but you will get a true visual to the story of the tune. Just like Thought's lyrics makes you go back to listen, you may have to watch Rik's video again to catch THE FIRE!
