Video: The Roots x Earth Day for Honda Promo

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The Roots, Honda Civic and “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” hook up to celebrate Earth Day in rhyme. This will certainly not help the Philly Hip-Hop band get rid of that “tree hugger” badge. Am I the only one who remembers a Volkswagen commercial that featured the Roots song “Dynamite!” (produced by Jay Dee/J. Dilla) and an And 1 commercial that featured ?uestlove drumming? How are those not on YouTube? [Spotted at OkayPlayer after #slander from the homie @Timmhotep]

VIDEO: Raekwon & Ghostface On Jimmy Fallon

Vodpod videos no longer available.

R.A.G.U. (Raekwon and Ghostface United) dropped by Late Night with  Jimmy Fallon to perform the Chef’s lead single, “Rock ‘N Roll,” from that Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, in stores March 8. Guess Jim Jones was AWOL. “Never rock skinny jeans I’m way above…” [Peeped at Rap Radar via HipHopStan]

Remember when ODB and Black Thought looked like they were about to throw the fives on stage? Can’t find that video at all. But Black Thought recently dropped standout verses on Ghostface’s Apollo Kids album and on Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang, so it’s all good.
