Roosevelt Franklin refreshes hip-hop

(02/12/04 5:00am)

In a time when hip-hop seems to be either club anthems or underground kids talking in pseudo-scientific next-level jargon, a project comes out of the woodwork to just flat-out have a good time. Roosevelt Franklin, made up of Kimani from The Masterminds and Mr. Len of Company Flow, piece together an album addressing relationships and politics, but mostly the need to bring hip-hop back to being fun. Roosevelt Franklin's debut, "Something's Gotta Give," features such solid artists as Jean Grae, Slug, Murs and Science Fiction.
