Among the highlights of "Game Theory" are the J-Dilla tribute "Can't Stop," incorporated interviews and memorial wishes from the recently deceased producer's friends. Elsewhere, the boom-bap drum pattern of first single "It Don't Feel Right" sets the tone for most of the album's production.
"False Media" featuring poet Wadud Ahmad showcased strong drums over Black Thought's thoughtful lyrics, while "Longtime" finds Roc-A-Fella Philly favorite Peedi Peedi aka Peedi Crack trading verses with Thought. The album also features three songs with former Root rapper Malik B, who hasn't been a full-time member since the mid-1990s.
As for upcoming videos, "It Don't Feel Right" will be the first from "Game Theory," blending additional songs "Here I Come" and "In the Music." The Roots plan to tour in support of the album until May 2007.
