About the Artist 

From the Momentary announcement:

Founded by Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, the hip-hop group went from rapping on Philadelphia corners all the way to gigs at The White House, a longtime stint as the “house band” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and billing atop their own annual festival The Roots Picnic. 

Among numerous classics, they changed hip-hop forever with 1999’s platinum Things Fall Apart—which Rolling Stone named one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and Pitchfork graded 9.4-out-of-10. 

Their Grammy Awards include Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group for “You Got Me,” Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “Hang On in There,” and Best R&B Album for Wake Up.
