John Morrison joins host Raina Douris

In 1993, most hip hop revolved around sampling and electronic beats. And then… The Roots showed up with their debut album, Organix. On the World Cafe, John Morrison talks about how The Roots’ approach – hip hop with a live band – was connected to the history of hip hop and how it helped shape the genre’s future.
