The Roots

The Roots used to play Summerfest quite a bit.  Once in a while Questlove would deejay afterwards.  Here’s a few pics from one of those nights.  Enjoy suckas.

You know you have a jam when you can play children’s instruments and still sound good. Robin Thicke along with The Roots and Jimmy Fallon play Blurred Lines.

Hands down Black Thought is f’ing amazing!! Who else can not only rhyme over the Mario Bros. theme, but also make sure the rap contains nothing but Marioisms. Black Thought can.

Questlove gets his Mary Poppins on for Philadelphia magazine.


[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.994679&w=425&h=350&fv=] ?uestlove takes us back to when he was 17! Ahhhh I remember when I was 17. Me, I.B. Edubl, Drepoupon, Nib Millions  (remember him?) and some dudes you never heard of got it in for like 5 years straight! Similar to the Chicago Bulls run. Too bad we didn’t videotape the adventures.

Don’t talk to me about your top ten rap groups of all-time unless The Roots are in the mix. I don’t wanna hear about your favorite rhymers unless Black Thought is part of the equation. And please when you mention drummers, I better hear ?uestlove. You feel me? During the latter part of 2010 Jeff […]

Eminem x Lil Wayne – No Love John Legend x The Roots – Ordinary People

I am the type who skips hip hop concerts because 9 out of 10 times, the shit sounds better on the stereo. I don’t want to spend my hard-earned chips during the recession to see a rapper and his posse pose on stage! But if this concert ever comes to the city, I will be […]

Killer Mike – Swimming The Roots x John Legend – Doin’ It Again Cee-Lo – Georgia

  The Roots will be dropping this summer on June 22nd. How many of you will cop this one?

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.940149&w=425&h=350&] There is something about this collaboration that has my attention. We love John Legend, but  something was missing from his last release. Him teaming up with The Legendary Roots Crew can’t help but be fire, and a good look for all parties involved. So we hope since the album is “99%” done, we […]

The Roots – She Said J  Dilla – Don’t Cry Blockhead – Daylight

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.915454&w=425&h=350&fv=] Just in case you missed it, Ringo Starr joined The Roots to perform “Here I Come” on the Jimmy Fallon Show. It’s always good to see two different eras join forces.

It is a great thing to have the hardest working band in hip-hop on your tv every night; they end up creating a vault of hits. The Roots working for Jimmy Fallon have the opportunity to work with different musical artist they may not have the chance to work with otherwise. 2DopeBoyz have come up […]

Working as the house band on a late night show has to be hard work. Especially when you have other career obligations to fulfill; such as recording albums. But the Legendary Roots Crew finds the time to do both, making them the hardest working band this side of the James Brown and the JB’s. Since providing […]
