Organix is the debut album of American hip hop band The Roots, originally released in 1993 by the band, independently. It was originally sold at the band's shows in Europe. The album earned enough industry buzz to earn The Roots offers from major record labels, after which they signed with DGC Records, which at the time was better known for its grunge music releases. Organix was re-released in 1998 on Cargo Records. - Wiki

“During the 1990s, the line between jazz and hip-hop had crossed numerous times, leaving the perfect opening for the legendary Philadelphia upstarts The Roots to release their self-produced debut, Organix. The album generated significant enough industry buzz that they were signed to a major-label soon after.

Long before one of the greatest live hip-hop groups of all-time was entertaining audiences of thousands on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Organix was the band at its' loosest and most playful, and a pinnacle in the development of the group, which would culminate with their landmark release "Do You Want More?!?." An important part of any fan of The Roots, or funk-inflected rap music in general, featuring the smooth basslines of Leonard Hubbard, the sinuous organ-work of an early Scott Storch, and the jazzy beats and esoteric rhymes of the band's longest-serving members, ?uestlove and Black Thought.” - Underground HipHop
