The Roots Tribute: Live from the Bedroom 8 - Mr. Green

Damn, I didn't know Mr. Green got down like this on the tables. Check this link out for those of you who may scoff at the absence of turntables.
For this episode I decided to use nothing but vocals from Black Thought and Malik B of the Roots. It's kind of a mini tribute to one of the greatest rap groups of all time. I chose to use these vocals because I've always been a huge fan of the Roots and because I'm getting really excited about dropping the album "Unpredictable" with Malik B. Also because the Roots are debuting on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!

If you watch to 2:00 minutes you will see that I invented a new
way to rock the (digital) turntables. Have you ever seen somebody pick
their digi turntables up and play them like a guitar before? Now you have.
