Once How I Got Over breaks through the first half's well-crafted melancholy and transitions into its more resolute second half, the sound shifts from glowing downtempo neo-soul to something more energized. Right On pits Joanna Newsom's lilting voice and harp against one of the most commanding drum breaks on the album John Legend is artfully deployed as both a ghostly sample the cathedral-sized Doin' It Again and an intense live vocalist The Fire Web 2020 upends the minimalist snare-driven charge of its Tipping. 14 tracks 42:28. How I Got Over is the ninth studio album by American hip hop band The Roots, released June 22, 2010 on Def Jam Recordings. Production for the album was primarily handled by band members Black Thought, Questlove, Dice Raw, and Rick Friedrich during 2008 to 2009. It contains a subtle, somber sound and features lyrics concerning themes of existentialism, perseverance, and modern society. With their new late-night TV gig in 2010, The Roots were suddenly Americas most visible hip-hop group. But instead of going mainstream, the Philly groups ninth album uses the platform to deliver somber, direct raps overlaid with the textures of neo-soul and indie folk. Right On deftly flips a Joanna Newsom sample into hypnotic boom bap, while the title track has a laidback but powerful funk groove over which Black Thought both sings and raps, advocating against apathy.
