For me The Roots are a reason to tune into The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on occasion and it’s awesome to me when guests on the show are fans of the legendary hip hop band as well. There’s a frequent segment on the show called
‘Lip Sync Battle’ that has gained a lot of notoriety and even sparked a Spike TV show specifically for celebrity lip sync battles.
Typically however, I wouldn’t really care to watch but Seth Rogen did something pretty amazing on the show yesterday. Instead of using a playback track, he used the in studio band The Roots to perform their 21-year-old classic “Mellow My Man” while Seth lip synced the song. It’s truly a great moment. Check it out above.
