The Roots Are AMAZING - "The Legendary: A Film About The Roots"
I knew the roots were something special when I bought their "Distortion to Static" single with "The Lesson" on the B-side back in '94. Since then, I've found them to be the most consistently creative rap group out there, not to mention the premier band called on by hip hop's elite to supply the backdrop for life altering live perfomances. If you need proof, watch Jimmy Fallon every week night on NBC for an unmatched dose of musical dexterity. The film "The Legendary: A Film About The Roots" is a brief lesson for those who have thoroughly dozed on one of hip hop's greatest groups. Take notes on how to rock live, embody versatility, and still keep it hip hop regardless to who's watching.
