DJ Heat – Late Night With The Roots (Mixtape)

Late Night With The Roots (Mixtape)

Questo & Black keep their vision to the sky, the rest have their eyes on the road. Fitting.

I’ve been a long-time, outspoken fan and critic of the Legendary Roots Crew. When they became the house band for Fallon’s new gig after Def Jam put so much time into marketing their CDs (#sarcasm), I was ecstatic that they’re hard work was finally recognized on a larger scale. Plus, after raiding the OkayPlayer store yesterday during its 50% discount sale, it’s only right I post this.

The generous DJ Heat recently compiled all of The Roots’ live renditions to date with guests of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Performances include Q-Tip, Public Enemy, Mos Def, Luda, Ghost, Rae, and, well you can read the tracklist for yourself. It showcases the Philly band’s single “How I Got Over” in its pure form, plus that Clipse set is damn near phenomenal.

Download link and track list below. Shout to 2DB and Heather for the heads up. Artwork by Shake. Oh, and props to the only whiteboy in the group, bassist Owen Biddle, for holding it down for us soulful yet melanin-deficit brothas, Enjoy!

How I Got Over (Live)

The Roots on Fallon

The homie Dallas Penn inquired a lil’ while back if I had the audio of The Roots’ performance of their new single “How I Got Over” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I finally found a good quality recording, figured I’d upload it for y’all to enjoy.

This live version is much more upbeat and soulful than the studio one. There’s something about ?uestlove and the fellas rocking out live that captures the essence of what a performance should be – energetic, intense and chaotic yet cohesive.

Check out the download link below. You can scoop the studio version here and pre-order the album at Amazon to support the band. Enjoy!

How I Got Over

The Roots

The Roots debuted their new single on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon a lil’ while back, and here we have the MP3. “How I Got Over” is off the Philly band’s album of the same name, dropping September 29th.

This is some soulful, socially conscious organic hip-hop from Questlove, Black Thought and the fellas. I’m diggin’ it!

Shouts to Mike from illRoots for the heads up and Adam for the picture, Enjoy!
