First of all, let’s talk about these ill capers. And by ‘ill capers’ I mean the mind-blowing live performances, collaborations, DJ sets and spontaneous raves of the 5th Annual Roots Picnic that unfolded on Philadephia’s festival pier at Penn’s Landing last weekend.
And by ‘talk about’ I mean beam the sights and sounds of this ill Okayplayer TV recap directed by Emmai Alaquiva directly into your brain. Because if we actually sat here and talked about every mind that got blown over those 2 days–the historic convergence of De La Soul, Yasiin Bey & The Roots onstage, the rain-soaked mini-freaknik that will henceforth be forever known by people that were there simply as ‘Diplo-tent’ (ex: “Were you at Diplo-tent? That sh*t was crazy!”), the shout-every-word percapella of Rakim x The Roots performing Paid In Full in full, and so many more–we would be talking for like 2 weeks. Luckily, you can relive it all in about 3 minutes and 41 seconds RIGHT HERE – and stay tuned for more highlights so come!
