I heard this song called Universal Funk on my last.fm radio by The Roots. I searched all their albums, but couldn't find it. Damn, I loved that beat.

Does anyone know where I can get it?

Anywho, Game Theory was a good listen.

Yea it wasn't really up to par especially the fact "Things Fall Apart" was the previous album before it. But "Game Theory"...DAMMMMMM ! Black Thought lyrically bodied that whole album & I think Dice Raw gave him that right spark too

They put on one of the best shows in hiphop. I have seen them 5 times now. Best show was when they were touring with Cody Chestnutt on the Phrenology tour.
