Now Here's What I Want Y'all To Do.

Grandmaster Flash once said that the Furious Five would've sounded like The Roots, had they been able to afford instruments. And here they are, redefining hip hop.

I have Jay-Z's MTV Unplugged CD, on which the Roots are his backing band. I was really struck by how they were able to recreate the precise sounds that producers like Timbaland and the Neptunes had created in the studio, but in an looser way much more akin to jazz or funk.
