The Roots are at it again with their tenth disc, Rising Down, which features a whos who of stellar guest appearances. Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, and original member Malik B all appear on the album.

R&B songbird Chrisette Michele, featured on the cut "Rising Up," recently sang her answer to HipHopDX asked about the project. Yesterday I saw a big girl crying, I walked up and asked whats wrongIm feeling The Roots. Check out the new single I did with them. The Roots are whats up right now.

L.O.X. member Styles P, who recently collaborated with Roots' emcee Black Thought on the "Because Im Black" single off his own Super Gangster solo disc, also shared his feelings with DX on working with the Legendary Roots crew on the Rising Down single that also features Mos Def and Dice Raw. I love The Roots. Im known as a street dude, so I think its important for me to take time out and drop a jewel, make a cut with The Roots, or a cut like Im Black. You gotta let the youth know you can be from there but you could still be here too. A dirty project kid from where Im from is gonna love Talib [Kweli] and Common. But Im telling them I did all that and you can still care about the community. Styles P is letting people know its okay to be a man.

Rising Down is out April 29th.
