Third Root is a Hip-Hop project that consists of Charles Peters (Easy Lee) & Marco Cervantes (Mexican StepGrandfather). Peters is an accomplished poet/author/MC, and Cervantes is a producer/MC/Ph.D. professor in Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas at San Antonio. They joined forces to craft "Stand For Something", an album that focuses on the history and healing of black and brown communities.

In high school, CG and Marco were in a hip-hop group (Wasted Youth) with CG's brother Jerry and best friend Charles. Fast forward two decades, CG reunites with his lifelong friend Mexican StepGrandfather and Easy Lee to present Third Root's newest collaboration, Third Root X DJ Chicken George - Mind Elevation and also announce CG's inclusion as Third Root's deejay.
