'The Tipping Point' (the title refers to Malcolm Gladwell's book on the critical moments that touch off social phenomena) is the Roots' follow-up to their Grammy-nominated album 'Phrenology.' On that lauded album, the Roots created a "blueprint for twenty-first-century pop music," (Rolling Stone).
With contributions from Jean Grae, Martin Luther, Devin the Dude, guitarist Captain Kirk Douglas, producer Scott Storch and comedian Dave Chappelle, 'The Tipping Point' also highlights the collective of artists and producers who the Roots have championed throughout their career.
Elsewhere on the record, comedian Dave Chappelle makes an appearance on "In Love With (The Mic)" and the group also pays homage to Sly and the Family Stone with a "virtual" duet on "Everybody is a Star."
