  • Black thought been that dude mannn

  • tobicontinued…

    Black is (and always has been) dope… but that’s clearly not a freestyle

    Fallon has a top 10 MC of all time as a sideshow and a the best hip hop group of all time as a house band. This bothers me. I know the Roots getting money so I get it, but it seems insulting to me.

    Would Coldplay or the Red Hot Chili Peppers do this shit?

  • stop picturing imaginary Ls. life is good, the boys are obviously havin fun

  • Danny

    @zig Are you serious? Should they just not be on TV at all? Fallon is doing them a service because he actually likes their music. THat’s fucking ridiculous to say that it’s an insult. It’s not like he’s forcing them to make bullshit bubblegum pop music like record labels do with some groups. The Roots are getting exposure thanks to this without having to sell out.

    fallon is massive hip hop fan & fought hard to get the roots because the studio weren’t sure about it. Just look at the past list of hip hop artist he’s had on; Joey bada$$, nas, curren$y and plent more dope rappers.

  • the roots wanted to be on the show in the first place. it’s not like they signed a death wish lol.
