In Brief

*** The Roots, "The Legendary," MCA. This energetic, five-cut release (in stores Tuesday) serves as an appetizer for the live album the Philadelphia-based rap crew is scheduled to release in November. Consisting of concert renditions of songs from their "Things Fall Apart" album as well as new selections, the collection serves as a testament to the Roots' international following--you can hear animated fans in Switzerland rapping along.
