These are getting really sad to keep writing in 2016. Gone way too young, R.I.P. Phife Dawg.
My love of hip-hop I can say was sprouted from listening to A Tribe Called Quest. Sure there were others too but there was always something about ATCQ, a realness and authenticity. Like other groups, they had their issues and eventually disbanded (and got back together on special occasions, lastly I believe in Nov. 2015 on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) but together, they were simply the best.
“You on point, Tip?”
“All the time, Phife.”
New music from Kendrick. If you missed his performance on Jimmy Fallon last night, click play below to see him perform “Untitled 2.” The video has garnered nearly 800,000 views in under 24 hours.
Music fans, you must watch this! Making her debut on late night TV and backed by The Roots, here is Alessia Cara performing “HERE” last night on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Click HERE to learn more about the song from Alessia. Bonus, you’ll get to see her live at the Life is Beautiful Festival in Downtown Las Vegas this September. PARTY!
Last night the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon episode (from February 22) featuring The Avett Brothers was re-aired and if you didn’t catch it either time on the tube, you must watch this killer performance. And if you’ve never seen them live I highly suggest you change that in 2013.
We are 70 days away from Bonnaroo (yes I count) and the additional artist announcements and comedy lineup should be released in the next couple of weeks. So it had me thinking, The Roots are playing this year, they are Jimmy Fallon’s house band, Jimmy Fallon loves music and has performed at Bonnaroo before, how cool would it be if he was named to the comedy lineup AND did his show live from Bonnaroo on Friday night? We can dream, right?
