WinkBall Talks to The Roots Fans


Uploaded on August 30, 2011 by Muzu

The Roots make a welcome return to London on Friday, 19th August 2011 for their first headline show in 2 years. After 25 years of driven Hip Hop creativity that has delivered to a devoted global community, there is nowhere these Roots don’t reach, including some amazing collaborations. One critic defined Philadelphia’s favourite politically motivated hip hop/funk/jazz collective as “cold eyed Hip Hop existentialism”. Having said, “London holds a very special places in our hearts. It was our home base from the summer of 1994 until the summer of 1995 and has proven to be a consistent source of inspiration both musically and socially across the years. We’ve missed the town profoundly and we’re really looking forward to what we think of as a homecoming” Feelings, thoughts and politics are the backbone of The Roots, we can use the love and smooth rhythmical healing to a post-riot London. Welcome home-boys! Winkball citizen video reporter’s bopped to the HMV Hammersmith Apollo, to collect the ecstatic video reviews from the Old and the Nu Skool Headz.-WinkBall talks to The Roots fans
