So there have been alot of happenings with The Roots new album, Rising Down, in the past couple weeks. First they announced colabos and released a few songs (75 Bars (Blacks Reconstruction) [mp3], Get Busy (ft. Dice Raw & Peedi Peedi ) [mp3], and the title track Rising Down (ft. Mos Def & Styles P) [mp3]). Thought and the crew then they went on to release the first single Birthday Girl (feat. Patrick Stump) [mp3], including this video (still not known to be official) for their colaboration with the Fall Out Boy frontman. After jumping through all of these hoops, it was then made public that the single wouldn’t even appear on the American release, and would most likely be replaced by the newest release, Rising Up [mp3], featuring Chrisette Michelle, and my favorite up-and-comer Wale.

After listening to all of these tracks, and seeing these sick ass videos, including listening party footage….

Birthday Girl (feat. Patrick Stump) – this video is just as uncomfortably fun as the song…. and I love it.
