De La Soul Live with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon

De La Soul live from 30 Rock! The Native Tongue OGs appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night to perform two of their classic songs. Backed by The Roots, the legendary rap trio brought back memories of their incredible set from last year’s Roots Picnic. I half expected them to perform the Wu-Tang sampling new single “Get Away.” Instead they treated the network television audience to 3 Feet High and Rising’s “Jenifa Taught Me.” If that wasn’t enough, they ripped through “A Rollerskating Jam Named ‘Saturdays'” as a bonus online exclusive. These dudes carry so much energy and charisma in their performance game, I wish other MCs would take notice and aim for half as much stage presence as De La Soul live. As we wait for info on their forthcoming album You’re Welcome, check out the double dose of De La Soul below (and if you’re in Brooklyn, get your grub on with De La when they play the Great Googa Mooga foodie fest tomorrow in Prospect Park).

  • juanamerico

    I can’t see this video just because i’m not in the USA…
    I think music has no nationality and needs no visa to keep flying

  • artois

    Guys, if you consider yourself to be an international as opposed to a solely US based entity… POST VIDEO LINKS THAT CAN BE VIEWED OUTSIDE OF AMERICA! Please and thank you 🙂

  • foNki troNki

    Funk, I can’t see this video from Madrid, Spain ;(

    • use a chrome extension named hola (yeah like the spanish word) and you will view the content from many website, you can find hola in the chrome web sote

    • Al Fuenfberg

      I could view THIS video with that extension?

  • You likely can’t see the video outside of the US due to licensing rights and because it is embedded through Hulu. @okayplayer you guys should look into getting all your content on an Online Video Platform to boost your user experience, cuz those videos were FIRE!!!!
