Image: 1612104 Third Root is a Central Texas hip-hop collaborative that focuses on Black
and Brown overlapping culture and identity. The group consists of Charles
Peters (Easy Lee), Marco Cervantes (Mexican StepGrandfather), and DJ
Chicken George (DJCG). Peters is an accomplished poet and educator,
Cervantes is a producer and Ph.D. who teaches at the University of Texas
at San Antonio, and DJCG is a world-renowned DJ, musicologist, designer
& Jazztronica! Peddler. Their latest album, Libertad, produced entirely by
Grammy Award winner Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Brownout,
Echocentrics, Spanish Gold), re?ects today’s current mobilization
among Black and Brown communities in the face of debilitating cycles
of police brutality, ?awed educational systems, privately owned prisons
and detainment centers, corporately owned politicians, and racist judicial
systems. The album delivers a mix of social justice and jam session with
each song designed to raise questions, incite discussion, and promote
healing and liberation. “Re?ection of the Times” and “Soul Force” are the
leading singles from Libertad.
A: Re?ection of the Times feat. Reggie Coby - is a powerful conversation
on race that spells out the struggle in stark and unambiguous terms.
It’s an outcry against injustice and a call to rise and re?ects the times
we’re living in. “Re?ection of the Times” is an opportunity for the group to
present the foundation for that dialogue to continue.
B: Soul Force feat. Da’Shade, Riders Against The Storm, Bavu Blakes &
Vocab - Third Root assembles a dream team supergroup of top Central
Texas emcees for this explosive “posse cut” that evokes memories
of classic group tracks like Wu-Tang Clan’s “Protect Ya Neck” or Main
Source’s “Live At The Barbeque.” With this many team members, there’s
a chance of a too-many-cooks situation, but “Soul Force” delivers, making
the song both a call-to-action and a call to start the party
