View Full Version : Late Night with The Roots (Mixtape)

01-08-2010, 05:09 PM

Many fans raised their eyebrows when they first learned that The Roots will serve as the house band for Late Night With Jimmy Fallon arguing the legendary Hip Hop group from Philadelphia is wasting their unique talent playing the intro and outros of commercial breaks also known as sandwiches. However, the collective proved their doubters wrong by constantly delivering outstanding live performances on your television. DJ Heat has now prepared a tasty sandwich compiling the bandís best performance clips from the TV show with Ludacris, Clipse, Wale, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Black Star, Public Enemy and many more. Definitely a nice homage to one of the dopest live bands out there. Enjoy.

downloading just to get an mp3 of the Roots live version of "Catalina" with Raekwon. that shit was fucking awesome, hopefully it's untouched with no shouts or mixed. the tape could definitely be worth checking tho, thx man!

Ho ho, I like this; nice for comparative purposes.

Personally, I think Catalina and Barely in Love sound better on their albums, especially seeing as the latter was played by a live band there too.

But that live version of Soul Food is going on the album for me.
