It’s no secret right? The Roots are, at this point Legendary. No longer can we headnod and call them a hip hop band. ?uestlove, Black Thought and the rest of the crew have become a SuperGroup. And it doesn’t look they have any plans to retire anytime soon.
Cam Be (director/editor) and Jeff Baraka (Interviewer/co-producer) tagged along with The Roots for a few stops on last yearâ€™s Hennessey Artistry tour, and got some great footage. Says Cam of the vid: â€œIn this film I wanted to not only highlight the versatility of a group that has played with most everyone in the industry. But also capture candid moments of real human beings just trying to share the gifts they have been given to the best of their abilities.â€ shouts to OKPTV.
