While I’m sure that they weren’t the first rap group to ever have a live band behind them…it was the first time for ME when I heard the Roots! And I mean, they were phenomenal! The sound and the music and the lyrics…it was like, WOW! The Roots are now the live band for Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, but I would ove to hear another album from them some day. Because Black Thought and Questlove kick ass! Hehehe!

Add to that mixture, a heavy dose of Cody Chestnutt, who was super independent, but was absolutely amazing in his own right! I know that he wasn’t really chasing any kind of commercial fame in his career, but he definitely deserved to be noticed for the stuff he put out. I wish I could have seen him live or something, but he’s still around, and I’m sure he’s bringing an infectious groove to everyone who’s lucky enough to hear his newest music.

The two forces, when put together, make for a lot of magic, music wise! And I hope they do something else together in the future. 🙂
