It’s been 15 years since The Roots released what is widely considered their breakthrough record Things Fall Apart. The album earned them two Grammy nomination, a top 40 hit (“You Got Me” featuring Erykah Badu and Eve), and platinum status.

To honor the local legends’ milestone, Philly emcee Chill Moody packs quite the lyrical punch on his new track “nicethings Fall Apart” delivering rhymes that detail his thirst for success over a selection of beats drawn from The Roots’ 1999 classic.

Ever the local favorite, fans recently named Moody the Indie Hip-Hop Artist of the Year at this year’s Tri-State Indie Music Awards where he also performed. Listen to “nicethings Fall Apart” below.
