We got so much Roots Picnic goodness that hasn’t been posted yet, we decided to put the best of the rest all into this one monster post so can just binge out and cure yourself of your picnic addicition once and for all (well, til next year). In that spirit, please dive into (in no particular order) NaS backed by The Roots on a crucial live version of “One Mic” (above), The Roots bodying Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo‘s “Men At Work” (below), Esperanza Spalding looking and sounding like a new wave Minnie Ripperton and a quick interview with Pittsburgh’s next rising MC star Mac Miller. (after the jump and after the jump).

    Myl favorite Roots’ album…I cant answer with just one but I think I would say Things Fall Apart although Do you Want More has a special place in my heart and the live joint, Roots Come Alive was madd ill!!!

    They should put out a straight tribute album. Their Men At Work rendition is the baddest joint I have heard in a long time.
