Yes they should.They're not only the number 1 Hip-Hop band,they're the best band period.I would love to see them back De La Soul or A Tribe Called Quest.

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.

Questlove is my hope for nominating Kool and the Gang and the Commodores.

I told Questlove on twitter to nominate the Spinners, Kool and the Gang and the Commodores next year!

Why isn't Questlove pushing for Kool & the Gang and the Commodores?
