How They Got Over

The Roots' How I Got Over comes out today. Listen to it on their MySpace page here. The title song shares a name with a gospel hymn written by Rev. W. Herbert Brewster that became a Civil Rights anthem and has been recorded by Aretha Franklin, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Patti LaBelle and many others.
