“Deeply Rooted” – A Thank You to The Roots

The Roots have been going strong for 20+ years, few hip hop acts can say the same. From playing on a corner on South Street in Philadelphia to taking to one of America’s biggest stages five nights a week, The Roots have shown longevity, persistence, and a passion for their craft. Throughout it all they’ve stayed true to their original vision of bringing quality, organic hip hop music with live instrumentation. Members have come and gone, but the vision of The Roots still lives on, and continues to inspire generation after generation.

Check out our thank you to The Roots from friends, family, and fans of the group above, scored by The Wurxs, producers of “Understand” off The Roots latest album, . . . and then you shot your cousin.

If your in the Mid-Atlantic area,  head down to Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia tomorrow for one of America’s largest celebrations of the 4th of July— headlined by none other then The Legendary Roots Crew.
