This past Saturday saw the 2nd Annual ROOTS PICNIC take-over the Festival Pier at Philly’s Penns Landing. The Roots, TV on The Radio, Santigold, Kid CuDi, The Black Keys, Asher Roth, Elevator Fight, Bajah + The Dry Eye Crew – a day of truly amazing music and performance. But I have to say, the most magical part of the day-long event, was PUBLIC ENEMY backed up by The Roots and the Antibalas horns. Chuck D and Flavor Flav owned the stage, running around, hyping the audience with lightening bolts full of energy, while Black Thought held it down on the mic, alongside the legends. They recreated A Nation Of Millions and made it feel completely fresh and totally relevant, even though those songs are 21 years old, a testament to the longevity of a truly classic album. Above, look at TONE’s beautiful photos from the day. Want more? Click here to view OKP resident photographer Mel D.
