Billboard has done a cover story on the collaboration between John Legend and The Roots. The album is entitled Wake Up! which drops on September 21st .

This is the type of collaboration you dream of (another would be RZA and Nas which is also coming soon) and the timing is perfect considering how apathetic people are right now.
