The Roots Will Play Super Bowl Weekend

With some special guests.

Bruno Mars is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show but this year’s festivities include a smattering of concerts throughout the weekend at the “Bud Light Hotel,” which is actually a boat docked on the Manhattan side of the Hudson River. Saturday, Nov. 1st: the Foo Fighters, who recently got the band back together. The night before it’s the Roots crew, along with special guests Run D.M.C. and Busta Rhymes, and others. Let’s use this news to remind ourselves whence they came–here’s an oldie but goodie, co-written by Philly girl Jill Scott, and featuring Philly girl Eve, rapping a verse.
