Video: Brother Ali on Late Night on Jimmy Fallon

The Presence of Greatness.

Last week I flew out to New York to sit in with The Legendary Roots Crew on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. I’m a huge fan of these dudes. Questlove is one of the greatest producers/band leaders of all time, Black Thought is among the greatest MC’s and The Roots are in my top 10 most influential Hip Hop groups. -Look for an article on my top 10 later this week.- We played “The Preacher” and “Tight Rope” along with a few freestyle pieces. It’s a shame that most of what we did was during the commercial breaks but here’s the entire episode from last Tuesday.

Poppin’ bottles with Jimmy and The Roots.

Hit the jump for footage of Brother Ali at OKP’s ’09 Holiday Jammy.
