That’s My Jam #12: ‘The Seed (2.0)’, The Roots feat. Cody Chestnutt

The That’s My Jam manifesto is here.

From Phrenology – one of my favorite Roots’ discs – comes The Seed (2.0). The original Seed appeared on Cody Chestnutt’s 2002 double album, The Headphone Masterpiece, which he recorded on a 4-track in his bedroom.

The Roots fill out and funk up The Seed (2.0), and some of the more salacious language from the original track is scrubbed clean. The final products is a simple, compelling groove to back Black Thought’s smooth verses and Chestnutt’s urgent tenor on the chorus.
