The Roots always have great singles and they tend to pick guests that are both buzzed about and talented. They got a verse from Wale for “Rising Up” back when he was positioned to be the next big thing and they got Big K.R.I.T. for “Make My,” where he atones for the rap star lifestyle. K.R.I.T. shows his gentler side that appears on songs like “Dreamin,” but that he can’t bring to Tity Boi songs. Black Thought doesn’t put as much feeling into his verse and has some out of place lines like “Praying like a mantis.” Touching.
