The Roots – Here I Come (Feat. Dice Raw & Malik B)

Malik B. was an American rapper and singer who was a founding member of The Roots.

Although he did some solo work, his most interesting work was with that group, where he was a rapper rather than a song-writer.

If you are unfamiliar with the work of The Roots, check “The Seed” (2002).
