Building on the success of his solo debut, Curtis, Mayfield released the album Roots in 1972 to new levels of critical acclaim. Roots was a 7-song powerhouse of lush, Chicago soul arrangements, partnered with ambitious funk rhythms and grooves, and grounded in Mayfield's own socially conscious lyricism. It featured classics of the genre such as Keep on Keeping On, We Got to Have Peace, and Underground, and was a commercial boon as well, reaching No.6 on the Billboard R&B Charts. Roots was an album that cemented Mayfield's reputation as a genius of R&B music and has been notably sampled in tracks by 9th Wonder, Murs, Ill Bill, and Freeway.
