"you got me" (1999): the roots featuring erykah badu and eve

The Roots "You Got Me" (1999)

Believe it or not, this song was my introduction to the Roots. Needless to say, they've been my favorite band ever since. This track also spawned the career of many artists and producers, including Jill Scott, who co-wrote it, Scott Storch , who produced it, and Eve, who is featured as well. It will live on as one of The Roots' greatest hits. In 2000, it won the Grammy for Best Performance by a Rap Group.
