so, apparently The Roots are the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s new late night show. my first reaction was, “The Roots are dope, that’s a score for Fallon.” then, immediately following that thought, i was like, “what the fuck? why are they on some stupid two-bit tv show jamming during editing breaks to entertain the idiots who think Jimmy Fallon is cool and are going to brag about seeing fuckin’ Fallon in person instead of bragging about seeing The Roots?” obviously, the answer is money.
but where i’m stuck is here: i know The Roots sold out. usually, i’d write them off and never give a shit about anything new that they did, and that’d be the end of it. but i still wanna see them and hear their new stuff. shit, i even still respect them as artists (whose old shit is waaaaaaayyy cooler than most of their newer stuff. )so why don’t i care that they sold out?
oh yeah, so that video up there is my favorite song by The Roots. i can still sing along to every single word. when i first discovered this CD, i had no idea how cool it was; i just liked it. so i wasn’t a total loser as a freshman. BUT, this live version is totally different than the one on Things Fall Apart, but the embedding on that music video is disabled. so go here to listen to the studio version of the song. personally, i like that one more. but i’m biased.
