Formed during the modest start of the neo-soul movement, The Roots helped pioneer the neo-soul genre that has led to the success of artists like Jill Scott and Alicia Keys. With hits like “The Seed (2.0),” “Distortion to Static” and “What They Do,” it is not surprising that The Roots have been so influential in the hip-hip and neo-soul music arena.

Formed in 1987 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, The Roots began modestly, performing at local venues in Philadelphia before moving to London to perform at small venues throughout Europe. The Roots released their first studio album Organix in May 1993. Sold primarily at concerts during The Roots’ time in Europe, Organix garnered The Roots much industry buzz, laying the foundation for The Roots’ second album.
The Roots’ second studio album Do You Want More?!! was released in January 1995. While Do You Want More?!! failed to be a huge success among mainstream music, it fared well among R&B fans. The Roots’ third album Illadelph Halflife was the first album by The Roots to garner mainstream notoriety and Top 40 status. Released in 1996, Illadelph HalfLife spawned the hit “What They Do,” which reached No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first video by The Roots to receive airtime on MTV.
