Roots + Public Enemy = My Head Just Exploded

Pitchfork is reporting that live hip-hop geniuses and, er, Jimmy Fallon’s house band, The Roots, will back Public Enemy at a Philly festival where P.E. will perform It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back.

The Roots Picnic will go down on June 6 at Festival Pier in the band’s native Philadelphia. The band will play two sets at the festival, opening and closing the festival. And as Billboard reports, along with Antibalas, they will also back Public Enemy— another one of the greatest live rap groups ever– as they do their masterpiece It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back in its entirety.

There is no question in my mind that this will be awesome.

  1. Two overrated groups form to mediocre super group. Sadly, Terminator X will not be on stage pretending to scratch as he is tending to his Ostrich farm.
