The Roots (August 8)
You may know The Roots as the house band at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, or from their longstanding presence in the music industry, or Questlove's infamous Black Power hair pick. They recently played the BET Experience Concert with Erykah Badu, and brought out surprise guests Lauryn Hill and Busta Rhymes...Sooo cross your fingers for similar surprise guests! With or without surprise guests, The Roots never disappoint.
