Illadelph Halflife is the third studio album by American hip hop band The Roots, released September 24, 1996 on Geffen Records. It features a tougher and broader sound than their previous album, Do You Want More?!!!?! (1995). The album also contains integration of programmed drums and guest contributions by R&B musicians such as Amel Larrieux and D'Angelo, as well as jazz musicians such as David Murray, Steve Coleman, Cassandra Wilson, Graham Haynes

On their third album, "illadelph halflife," {cq} the Roots capture in the studio the same chemistry between rhymes and live instruments that they've generated on stage. The album does include samples, but they're samples of the band's own exploratory jam sessions in Philadelphia's legendary Sigma Sound Studios. Exclusively for Prime members. The album also contains integration of programmed drums and guest contributions by R&B musicians such as Amel Larrieux and D'Angelo, as well as jazz musicians such as David Murray, Steve Coleman, Cassandra Wilson, Graham Haynes.

The Roots’ third album took the group’s conscious, jazz-jam vibe to grittier places. Fronted by a newly confident Black Thought, they focused their lyrical crosshairs while Questlove and the band textured their live sound with samples lifted from extended jam sessions-a process that brought them closer to rap's centre while still keeping a stiff arm’s-length distance.

The album starts off with an intro track, and while I usually spend some time talking about them, this one truly is a short and sweet introduction, dizzying to say the least and fleeting. By the time you grasp what is being said, it’s gone and we get right into the great instrumentals and jazz infused beats signature to the group in Respond/React. When The Roots created Illadelph Halflife, they truly took the mechanics of Hip Hop and rap and effortlessly combined it with jazz and a whole lot of soul. From production to instrumentals to lyrics, The Roots left no stone unturned and gave us a twenty track masterpiece of every musical and poetic art form by showcasing talents of their members.

For the Roots' second major-label album, the band apparently recognized the weaknesses of the debut, since there are several songs which provide more structure than previous jam-session efforts - two even became R&B radio hits. But for all its successes, Illadelph Halflife mostly repeats the long-winded jams and loose improvisatory feel that characterized Do You Want More?!!!?!. And while these songs may sound great live (a field where the Roots excel over any other rap act), in a living-room setting listeners need hooks on which to focus.

For this album we are taken through different emotions and storylines, guided by the slickest rapper of all time, Black Thought, and his competent side kick Malik B, who never fails to sustain the hype and always shouted out his rap partner-similar in many ways to Phife Dawg, but a bit more sharp on the mic. Songs like Respond/React, Section, and Concerto of the Desperado are some of the razor-sharp lyrical journeys that will leave you with your arms in the air, rapping along to the Roots killing emcees. It Just Don't Stop is one of the more hardhitting reality raps on the joint
