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.

"False Media" from Game Theory is pretty raw

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.
