And as you watch, you should ask, ‘What rap group has a tuba player as one of their main members?’…read more…

Jimmy Fallon’s Freestyle Rap for undun

The Roots, Jimmy Fallon’s house band and the world’s hardest working rap group, released their newest album, undun, today! Jimmy is equally thrilled of the LP as I am, but there was something missing from it that has him down in the dumps. Take a look at the video below.
