Jimmy Fallon and The Roots are in Indianapolis at the Madden Bowl Bud Light Hotel for the Superbowl and Nas joined them to prefrom his single “Nasty”. All while repping the Giants.
Wale hits the stage alongside Miguel and the legendary Roots crew on Late Night with Fallon to perform one of my favorite cuts off of Ambition, “Lotus Flower Bomb”.
Blackstar recently got on Fallon to perform a couple tracks, one of which has ?uesto reminicing on how Dilla actually crafted the beat. I can’t explain it as well and as entertaining as The Roots funky drummer so click play above for an interesting story.
Yasiin & Talib stop by Fallon to preform the first track of their upcoming Aretha Mixtape. Also hit the jump to another video of the duo doing a track called Little Brother produced by the late great Dilla.
To coincide with the release of their album, The Legendary Roots Crew drop a black and white short film featuring four tracks from the LP “Tip the Scale,” “Sleep,” “Stomp” and “Make My.” undun is available on iTunes and in stores now, do yourself a favorite and pick it up.
The house band took the stage on Jimmy’s Late Night to perform a cut from their incredibly dope 13th album, undun with a little help from Bilal and Greg Porn. In other Roots news, it’s now said that NBC will be screening the songs that ?uesto and the crew play, be it for performances or just guest segways. The reason being the other night when Fallon introduced presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann the group proceeded to play a tune by the name of Lyin’ass Bitch by Fishbone. Hilarious to me, she didn’t seem to think so though.
Mac and Devin swing by Fallon to preform their hilariously censored hit with The Legendary Roots.
Previously: Juan Epstein ft. ?uestlove and Black Thought
For those who don’t know Juan Epstein is a podcast done by Peter Rosenberg and Cipha Sounds of Hot 97 where they get together and talk shit, with their celebrity guests they tend to delve pretty deep into the nerdy side of hip hop and tell great stories.
For those that are fans you know how long awaited a ?uestlove episode was. He’s like our hip hop historian haha.
In the same fashion as Childish Gambino’s Camp, The Roots decide to take it to NPR for the preview stream of their thirteenth album, undun. The project will be the band’s first-ever concept album which tells the story of Redford Stephens (google is your friend) The album hits stores on December 6 via Def Jam
