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!

Review: The Roots Picnic 6/6/09

Legendary. Very few artists deserve that description, but the Roots crew lived up to the title this past Saturday.

Led by iconic drummer Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and talented MC Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, the organic hip-hop jazz pioneers played generous host for the 2nd Annual Roots Picnic at Festival Pier, Penn’s Landing Philly. Thanks to the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation and Philly 360 I got a chance to venture to the City of Brotherly Love for the day-long celebration.

[Check out the rest of my review and photos after the jump.]
