Ed Sheeran & The Roots “Trap Queen (Cover)”

Soooo… better than the original?

Ed Sheeran’s acoustic cover of “Trap Queen” with The Roots was quick to go viral and if you haven’t seen it, you should conform immediately. I was skeptical at first, but from the first hook I was, well.. hooked. Enjoy!

Snoop Dogg & The Roots “So Many Pros”

Snoop & The Roots performed together on last night’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and they chose “So Many Pros” from Snoop’s new Bush album to get the live limelight. In addition to the performance, Fallon had fun with Snoop in his “Real People, Fake Arms” segment, hah!

Ludacris w/ The Roots “What’s Your Fantasy (Acoustic)”

“What’s Your Fantasy” was a go-to, silly, feel-good song back with the high school homies. In fact, I go way back with Who Dough (fun fact!) and I vividly remember this song blarin’ from his Jeep once.

That’s neither here nor there, except maybe to show our collective age, but the song gets a breath of fresh air last night as Luda performed the classic single, acoustic style with help from The Roots. Pretty awesome on paper, and pretty awesome in GoPro (!) video form above.
