'Things Fall Apart' is the fourth studio album by hip-hop band The Roots, originally released in 1999. Recording sessions for the album took place at Electric Lady Studios and coincided with recording for other projects of the Soulquarians collective, including D'Angelo's 'Voodoo' (2000), Erykah Badu's 'Mama's Gun' (2000), and Common's 'Like Water for Chocolate' (2000). 'Things Fall Apart' has been considered by music writers as The Roots' breakthrough album, earning praise from major publications and critics, while becoming the group's first record to sell over 500,000 copies. It includes the song 'You Got Me', which won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, while the album itself was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album in the same year.
