Video: OKPTV Behind The Scenes With The Roots at Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Okay, players, set your calendar alarms and DVRs and TiVos and VCRs (seriously?) because tonight is the debut of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, featuring The Roots as the house band! There’s been a bunch of hype already, with articles flying around the world wide web, discussing what The Roots have been up to (including lengthy rehearsals and writing up to 25 songs a day!), but now you can see for yourself. Before the late-night launch of TV’s newest favorite rap band, watch our own OkayplayerTV episode for some behind-the-scenes footage of The Roots on set, clowning around backstage before a test shoot. ?uesto, what did you say the stage manager’s name was again?? Pardon me? We also want to big up our host, Amanda Diva, who’s EP Spandex, Rhymes, Soul, is available now. Thanks to Mark Carranceja, who filmed and edited this episode. Finally, if you are in NYC come celebrate with us tonight at Le Poisson Rouge with DJ ?uestlover on the 1s and 2s.
