Trill (coded language from the streets of Port Arthur, Texas meaning True and Real). Pedagogy (the method and practice of teaching).

Spring Semester is the fourth and final installment of Third Root's Trill Pedagogy series. The series is designed to build upon their reputation as scholar emcees by releasing four EPs that mirror most college academic calendars.

Produced by nu-cumbia pioneer El Dusty and Grammy award winner Adrian Quesada, Spring Semester is a triumphant soundtrack that reflects Third Root's resolve to inspire change through their music, careers as educators, and work as community activists. As the final entry in their Trill Pedagogy series, they use Spring Semester to articulate their campaign and ultimate mission as scholar emcees: "meetings, sessions, talks, classes, shows keep dropping this / music with a message on a quest to spread consciousness."
