The Roots feat. Patty Crash – Never

The Roots get extra conceptual with this video. Peep the transgressions that the young man go through. Peep the ending. Try to understand the symbolism. Oh, and please enjoy.

The Roots ‘When The People Cheer’ [Video]

New music video from The Roots directed by Joe Baughma. Hand claps please!

The Roots feat. Raheem Devaughn – Tomorrow


The Roots are back with that album love. …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is the next album. Again, they are going for making meaningful, artful albums. This track isn’t even hip hop. It is R&B. But, it probably fits within the realm of what they are going for. Just peep it out.

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.
