The Roots Picnic Mixtape

The fifth annual Roots Picnic is at the Festival Pier this weekend, expanding to two days in 2012.

For me, the day to be there is Saturday, what with De La Soul, Danny Brown, Wale, St. Vincent, Tunes-Yards, a DJ set by James Murphy, and The Roots themselves. Though Sunday with Diplo, Major Lazer, Kid Cudi and The Roots backing up Rakim on the entirety of Paid in Full, his 1987 classic album with Eric B., is nothing to sneeze at. (Sunday night, ?uestlove will be spinning at the Picnic afterparty at Silk City on Spring Garden Street.)


Last week, the good people at Okay Player posted a Roots Picnic mixtape, assembled by DJ Low Budget, that blends together a great deal of the music that will be heard on the Pier this weekend, from Shabazz Palaces to Flosstradamus.
