The Roots with Doug E. Fresh


Here are some photos from the first of The Roots residency gigs at the Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City on Friday night. Old school MC Doug E. Fresh joined Black Thought on the mic, and relished spitting "The Roots, the Roots, the Roots are on fire/We don't need no water, let the [12 letter expletive] burn...." Beatboxer (and son of Bobby) Taylor McFerrin (at the bottom) also joined the band on stage, and did his part in an an awesomely percussive mano a mano exchange with ?uestlove.  Photos by Anne Carter. (I would have taken them myself, but my camera broke.)  The Roots are back on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, with Spinal Taptonight.
