In order to up the ante for their latest track, “XL,” San Diego-based hip-hop sextet Deep Rooted recruited emcees Killah Priest and Sha Dula. More production from Mr. Brady, who did a handful of tracks on the new album, gives the track that in-the-pocket groove, highlighted by a laid back bass line and dark, sinuous string sections. Singer Just Brea provides another soulful hook, which contrasts well with the harsh, aggressive verses of Killah Priest, Sha Dula, and Johaz. The song addresses themes of ancient civilization, power, and leaders, which Deep Rooted metaphorically uses to rhyme about their rise as a group. Check out the latest release, the self-titled D.E.E.P. R.O.O.T.E.D. out now on Clear Label Records (run by Tajai of Souls of Mischief & Hieroglyphics fame).
