The Roots ‘When The People Cheer’ [Audio]


Clap for em. “And Then You Shoot Your Cousin” LP drops later this year.

Jimmy Fallon, Sesame Street & The Roots Sing “Sesame Street”

But this Black Thought verse, though:

“OK, you heard about, through word of mouth
Big Bird is out, he’s in the house
He’s turnin’ up, with Snuffleup
They’re really gettin’ their hustle up
They stick together like Velcro
There Grover go, there’s Elmo
And Cookie Monster there, look he likes
To take selfies with his cell phone
They got a homegirl named Abby
Her last name is Cadabby
I showed her my report card
She said, [Abby: Not too shabby!]
They got all types of cool kids there
It’s lots of fun if you live there
One thing I keep forgettin’ about Sesame Street…
How do you get there?”

Mac Miller x The Roots – S.D.S. (Live on Jimmy Fallon)

Oh, man. I swear The Roots can do no wrong when it comes to the live interpretations. Watch Mac Miller put on a great performance for the promotion of his new album. I don’t care what people feel: Mac is a pretty damn good artists. This is proof (in my eyes).

Quest Love x Red Bull Academy

I mean, what more can you say or ask for? Man, this is something that PEOPLE need to watch. I mean, you have to realize that The Roots have went HARD for the past 20 years. 20 YEARS!!! Oh, and they don’t show any signs of slowing down.

De La Soul x The Roots – Jenifa Taught Me

Jenifa done taught them well, too. Peep what happens when you mix The De La with The Roots for an impromptu performance on Jimmy Fallon. Side note: what is up with Jimmy’s facial hair? Movie role?

A Weekend In Los Angeles (Rx x ScienZe) – RoofTops

A Weekend In LA - Rooftops

I didn’t know that Scienze moved to LA (or he is visiting…whatever). I see this “trip” isn’t going to waste. He is still overwhelmingly positive. He still does his thing.

Robert Glasper feat Solange Knowles & The Roots – Twice (?uestlove’s Twice Baked Remix)

Oh, man. You know what? This is part time ridiculous. It makes no sense that Robert Glasper has put out the best R&B this year and he is a jazz musician. Stuff like this is putting other artists to shame. And that is all I have to say about it.

Kendrick Lamar – Swimming Pools (Drank) (Jimmy Fallon)

Jimmy Fallon always brings the dope live performances. Kendrick Lamar? This situation is no different. Watch him navigate as the Roots Crew do what they do best: bring the funk.

Big K.R.I.T. x Roots on Jimmy Fallon

K.R.I.T. works damn good with a live band backing up the country funk that he brings. I sense another classic coming from his first major full length album. I cannot wait until it drops. It needs to be everything we hoped for. That is all I have to say about that.

The Roots – Undun (short film)

The Roots – UNDUN from The Ghettonerd Company, LLC on Vimeo.

Like I said before, this is the perfect music for telling the story. Therefore, this is the short film that accompanies this album. It has been out for a while, but people have just caught wind of the full time movie. Please watch, and listen to the soundtrack, of a film dealing with a young man that made all the wrong choices.
