Urban Roots

THE ROOTS rapper SCRATCH has slammed photographers - because they misrepresent him in photoshoots.

The MC - who has also worked as a producer for PINK and DE LA SOUL - has been sent to some bizarre locations for promotional purposes.

Scratch says, "We did a photoshoot a couple of days ago and they wanted us to go to the park and pose with some leaves.

"I'm like 'S***, I'm from Camden (London). How many trees do you see in Camden?'

"I'm no street thug, but the flowers and grass and s***? We're a hip-hop group. F*** all that organic jazz-band s***."
