The Roots – “Dear God 2.0″ (Feat. Monsters Of Folk)

“Dear God 2.0″ obviously remakes Monsters Of Folk’s “Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.)” and is maybe referencing “The Seed (2.0),” Internet 2.0, and (by default) XTC, but once Black Thought gets going, it reminds me of Common’s “Retrospect For Life.” The mellow, globally-minded letter to the big guy, which finds Jim James reprising his “Dear God” role, appears on the Roots’ forthcoming How I Got Over.
