If you're a Philly native, there was only one place for you to be on May 30th this year - the 8th Annual Roots Picnic. The concert, which took place at Philly's Festival Pier, featured artists such as The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky, Rae Sremmurd, and was anchored by the Queen of Neo-Soul herself, Erykah Badu. DJ & hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa was also in attendence. Watch the video above, via YouTube.
Black Thought & The Roots know how to put on a show. The Philly group started their set with the song "Act Too (Love of My Life)," leading into Badu's 2002 Grammy award-winning hit "Love of My Life." During Badu's song, they took breaks to incorporate a few classic rap records such as Grandmaster Flash's "The Message," Wu-Tang Clan's "C.R.E.A.M," Snoop Dogg's "Who Am I? (What's My Name)," and Nas' "Made You Look." Their set also included surprise performances from Freeway, YG, and The LOX.
