For a house band, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon's The Roots are exceptionally talented. In fact, they may have chosen to be Fallon's sidekick but they are one of the best hip-hop groups of all-time. And their mastery of the music trade was as evident as it's ever been on Tuesday night's show.
In a freestylin' segment, Fallon took random topics from the audience and asked the Roots to perform songs on them in very specific styles. Despite no time to prepare, Black Thought and Questlove combine to perform quality tunes, complete with lyrics and everything.
Get ready to hear a Snoop Dogg-styled rap song which is about an audience member who wants to throw both his mother and an old sweater out of his house. These freestyle numbers on weird topics coupled with Fallon's interesting interactions with fans make this segment a must watch.
