The Roots are legends. Blended soul, funk, rap, rock and jazz together. A huge influence on the underground hip-hop community.

Having released two critically acclaimed albums in the last two years and collaborated on well-received albums with John Legend and Betty Wright, The Roots have to be considered first-ballot material at this point. Their work on Fallon's show is just icing.
