It's been only a year or so since the duo of Easy-Lee Peters (of the Mojoe Family Band) and Mexican Stepgrandfather (also known in the hallways of UTSA as Dr. Marco Cervantes) formed Third Root, and dammit if they haven't been busy since. After the release of their acclaimed debut Stand For Something, the band immediately moved forward into new territory, sharpening their politically and culturally minded message. Our session catches the dynamic duo between releases, digging into some of Stand for Something's most choice material, and honing tracks from their soon to be released mixtape Mind Elevation.
Listen in to the full session below, and keep your calendar marked for the Plugged In Debut this Thursday at 10pm, along with the Mind Elevation Release Party, happening this Sunday.
