The Roots: How They Got Over
With a new album on the way and three months into a stint as the house band for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Philly hip-hop vets continue to spread their legendary wings...

Second that about the Paul Simon Video. Jim great article - the whole section on them playing between breaks and what the Roots do to walk guests out was really cool. Nice work!

Easily the most talented and compete hip-hop group. Lyrically, instrumentally, and their true passion for touring and incorporating themselves into the youth culture. Things Fall Apart will always be one of my favorite albums from any genre of music. Thanks for the excellent article. Nothing but love for these masterminds from the Illadelph.

Seen these guys many times over the years, and never seen a show that disapointed. Easily one of the best touring bands of all time I think. Great review too. Cant wait July 2 @ 1st. ave.
