The Roots Prep ‘Do You Want More?!!!??!’ Deluxe Reissue

The Roots will rerelease their 1995 album Do You Want More?!!!??! as a deluxe reissue complete with previously unreleased songs, remixes, alternate versions, and more.

The Do You Want More?!!!??! reissue, due out March 12th as a three-LP, four-LP, or digital deluxe collection, is available to preorder now via Geffen/UMe. Ahead of the reissue’s release, the hip-hop group has shared the digitally unavailable “Street Mix” version of the album ballad “Silent Treatment.”

Among the unreleased tracks on the deluxe reissues are “Proceed II Feat. Roy Ayers”, “Proceed III”, “Proceed IV (AJ Shine Mix),” and “Proceed V (Beatminerz Mix),” each a continuation of the album track “Proceed.” Other unreleased cuts include “In Your Dreams Kid (I’m Every MC),” “The Ultimate (Original ’94 Version),” “……(dot dot dot…on & on),” “Pffat Time,” “Swept Away (Original Draft),” and “It’s Coming.” The reissue also contains five remixes of “Silent Treatment” — including ones by Black Thought and Questlove — and two mixes of “Distortion to Static.”

Both physical formats of the Do You Want More?!!!??! reissue host a 24-page booklet documenting the history of the Roots’ major-label debut album, which prominently featured the late Roots rapper Malik B.
